The Good Old Boys on the AMA Board of Trustees are fighting to retain control of the Association with a mailing adressed "To All AMA Members" and characterizing the Take Back The AMA slate of challengers as not being representative.<BR><BR>The mailing was published over the names of Trustees Rick Gray, Dal Smilie and Jeff Smith and endorses running-for-re-election incumbents Carl Reynolds, Ron Widman and Ellis Robertson.<BR><BR>Reynolds is running against Kevin Schwantz, Widman is running against Jeff Nash, and Robertson is running against John Ulrich. Schwantz, Nash and Ulrich are running as the Take Back The AMA slate.<BR><BR>The mailing in support of the incumbents makes no reference to and offers no defense for the incumbent board spending $3 million of members' money to settle the Edmondson lawsuit in June of 2001, and makes no mention of Reynolds' key role in the entire Edmondson debacle.<BR><BR>At post time, roadracingworld.com was unable to contact AMA President Rob Rasor to ask him how the incumbents obtained the AMA membership mailing list for use in their campaign.
