AMA Dragbike Calls it Quits


Filed under AMA Dragbike, Articles

AMA Dragbike announced on Thursday, June 24th, 2010 that they are immediately ceasing the operations. According to the AMA Dragbike site, "Effectively immediately, Hammer Motorsports DBA AMA Dragbike Series, will cease operations indefinitely."

The emailed announcement from AMADragbike.com:

Effectively immediately, AMA Dragbike will cease operations indefinitely.

Regretfully, today’s economic climate, rising costs and decreasing revenue makes it fiscally irresponsible to continue doing business. The final details are being worked out at this time.

"Motorcycle Drag Racing has been a passion for both of us for many years and we have given all of ourselves to this sport," said Brandi Neithamer, Vice President of AMA Dragbike. "We knew this year would be very difficult given the economic conditions but we never anticipated it would go downhill so quickly. Scott and I have a tough road ahead of us to close the business, and we hope to receive the support of the community during this difficult time."

"If there are any parties interested in starting another sanction that will carry on the professional level and values of AMA Dragbike, please feel free to contact us," she continued. "We will do everything in our power to help you succeed."

AMA Dragbike would like to thank all the racers, sponsors and fans that have helped support the organization (formerly AMA Prostar) over the last 21 years. We have always strived to hold safe, fair and exciting racing events, and we appreciate all that have helped us achieve that goal.

Best wishes to all in our racing community,

Scott Valetti
Brandi Neithamer

The AMADragbike.com site also notes:

"The AMA will be issuing their own statement regarding the future of the AMA Dragbike Series,” Neithamer continued. “If there are any parties interested in discussing our operation of the series, please feel free to contact us. We will do everything in our power to help you succeed."

Steering Dampers / Stabilizers


Filed under

A motorcycle steering damper, or steering stabilizer, is an important piece of safety equipment for a motorcycle drag racer. The steering stabilizer helps to eliminate rider induced wobble, which can potentially cause a total loss of control and crashes. This wobble is also known as rider-induced oscillation, where the rider's attempt to maintain a grip on the handlebars and attempts to correct the direction of the motorcycle during wobble, inadvertently increases and exaggerates the wobble to the point of the rider being ejected from the bike. Click the links below will open a description of the motorcycle stabilizer on ebay in a new window.
