Hugh Fleming has been named AMA Pro Racing Director of Safety and will convene a panel of doctors to develop improved crash response procedures.
AMA Pro Racing CEO Scott Hollingsworth said at Friday's AMA Awards Banquet that noted orthopedic surgeon Dr. Art Ting will be involved on the panel, along with two doctors with experience in car racing.
Roadracing World has asked AMA Pro Racing to also consider involving AMA Pro racer Dr. David Kieffer, an orthopedic surgeon, and Dr. Jim Adams, an emergency room physician who runs a Cook County, Illinois EMT training program and, along with his two sons, club races.
