Buell to race ama superbike?!?

Here is a press release from buell on entering the ama superbike class with a non-street legal 1125rr.http://www.superbikeplanet.com/2009/Jul/090715d.htm

Here is a pretty good commentary from a guy who knows a little about racing.
http://www.superbikeplanet.com/2009/Jul/090715e.htm

Seems questionable to me. What if anything do you think the japanese factories will say/do? I realize buell has little or no chance of winning, but this just seems outrageously unfair to me. So what do you guys think of this?

DMG should just change the rule book to 3 words:

WE SAY SO

They are a complete joke. I can't believe anyone supports this BS.

I hope buell wins every DMG race, because I hope everyone else is racing another series so I can support US racing again.

I'm convinced... I tried to give the AMA/DMG the benefit of the doubt on the rules. The pace car thing at Laguna Seca put me on the edge... Now this pushes me off, and pisses me off.

Here is hoping that the MIC is working in secret to get something together for 2010 and beyond...

I don't know all the rules but why is it they are racing the Aprilia 1000 and that junk ass Buell with the 600s? I know they are twins but I'm sure the TQ is higher then ANY of the 600's. I seen it at Cali how the Buell pulled everything.

WE (DMG) SAY SO!

There is no logic other than payback to the jap manufactures, who refuse to lick the sh!t off Roger's dick when buell needs a break from getting it up the poop shoot.

Why not just cut out all the bullshit and just call Buell the winner now? Fuck DMG.

Fuck it, why doesn't DMG just go one step further and say only American bulit bikes are allowed to race?

Why are we posting when we could be Riding?
