July 22, 2009 To the AMA Pro Racing Community: I would like to offer my sincerest apologies to the fans of our sport, all AMA members, competitors, AMA Pro Racing officials and Johnny Rock Page for my behavior in the Tech Garage at the recent AMA Pro Road Racing event at Mid-Ohio. My actions were out of line and detrimental to the well being and the growth of the sport that we all love. Mr. Page is a professional racer and should have been reprimanded for his actions in a professional manner. He was not, and the blame is entirely and solely my own. I am regretful for offending anyone’s sensibilities, and I vow never to conduct myself in this manner in the future. We expect cordial dialogue and behavior from our competitors and, in turn, they should expect the same from us. I failed to live up to this code of conduct. Once again, I am offering my sincerest apologies to everybody that was affected by my poor decision to conduct myself in a non-professional manner. Sincerely, Al Ludington AMA Pro Racing Technical Director
