AMA Superbike double-headers at Road Atlanta, Road America and Mid-Ohio will feature Formula Xtreme, but will not include Pro Thunder. In an e-mail to Roadracing World, AMA Road Race Manager Ron Barrick wrote "We are not including the Pro Thunder class at the three Superbike double events. I did not tell Road America we would not include Formula Xtreme. Please research such stories in the future."
Barrick was referring to an earlier news item based on sources at Road America who told Roadracing World that AMA Pro officials had asked them to not run Formula Xtreme due to TV broadcast time considerations at double-header events.
