Promoters Now Ready For Willow Superbike Race, But Can't Get Answer From AMA, Track Official Says

In an April 3 phone call to Roadracing World, Greg Huth of Willow Springs Raceway said that enough sponsorship has now been lined up to make the AMA National originally scheduled for September 14-16 viable. The problem now is that AMA officials will not return phone calls or confirm the date on the AMA Superbike schedule, Huth said, adding that the track was determined to see the race happen even if it had to co-promote the event with Hansyllan Motorsports.<BR><BR>"I called to see if you can find out what is going on," said Huth. "AMA won't talk to anybody about anything. They will not return phone calls, FAXes or letters. I'd like to get a real word on it.<BR><BR>"Everything is lined up for the race to happen," Huth continued. "But Hansyllan can't get confirmation on the date."<BR><BR>Hansyllan Motorsports' Steve Rethmeier could not be reached at his office in Anaheim, California prior to post time.
