From Tony Bell of Laguna Niguel, California:<BR>"While reading the proposed AMA rule changes on the Roadracing World website I see no mention of prohibiting 600s in the Superstock class. I know this is within the rules but factory teams fielding top riders in a class that gives an opportunity for up and coming riders to show their skills, is not "playing the game" the way it should be played. Plus it takes money off the table that would help the riders who just missed out on a payday.<BR><BR>"With AMA moving to four classes only in 2003 and the hope that they can further increase spectator attendance: How do you tell a new spectator that the Superbike class is more prestigious than the Formula Xtreme class even though Formula Xtreme is a unlimited engine size and unlimited horsepower, to Joe Public this must be confusing. <BR><BR>"No such confusion in NASCAR--dead easy, Busch Cars, and Winston Cup cars, even a wanker in the UK can work out which is the 'Super' class."<BR><BR>
