Schwantz Says: Yes MotoGP, No Way AMA
Friday, August 21, 2009
Indianapolis Motor Speedway recently conducted a phone interview with former 500cc GP World Champion Kevin Schwantz and while most of it was centered around the latest MotoGP news, one very interesting question caught our attention as Schwantz was asked if he would consider running a World Superbike or AMA team if his dream of running a MotoGP team didn't come to fruition soon. The following was Schwantz's answer...
"You know, first and foremost MotoGP is where I think Kevin Schwantz made his name, and that's where I'd initially like to be. If things don't work out there, possibly a World Superbike deal. No way at all, any chance, no direction, no chance, no way, no how would I do anything AMA."
This from a man who currently works in racing extensively both here and overseas and has an equally impressive racing background as well. Thus, if this doesn't say something about the state of racing in American I'm not sure what does.
