Chet Burks Productions Working on TV Package for AMA Pro Road Racing for 2013 Season-See What Roadracing World Has to Say
Two of the most-heralded riders in the history of the AMA Superbike Championship Series go at it again during race two of the Wiseco Superbike 100 Doubleheader at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in July '04. Miguel Duhamel can be seen looking over his shoulder as he rolls into the last right-hander before the quick left onto the front straight on the #17 American Honda/Shoei/Joe Rocket/Dunlop-sponsored CBR1000RR while leading Mat Mladin on the #1 Yoshimura American Suzuki/Motorex/Dunlop/VP Fuel-backed GSX-R1000. Mladin would go on to pass his French Canadian rival to win the race and would clinch his fifth of seven AMA Superbike Championships at the end of the season.
According to John Ulrich and his people at Roadracing World.com, the man behind the majority of motorcycle road racing television coverage in the United States in the last 15+ years and his company are working on putting together another television package to showcase the great racing in the Geico Motorcycle AMA Pro Road Racing Series for the 2013 season. With the recent news that SpeedTV as we know it may be going away, Chet Burks Productions appears to be working with some of the other sports networks on your favorite satellite or cable provider. It has been speculated that Speed will most likely get swallowed up by it's Fox flagship and rolled over into another version of Fox Sports for several months now, something along the lines of what has happened with NBC Sports Network, formerly Versus.
Burks talked with Roadracing World founder and Team Hammer/M4 Suzuki team owner John Ulrich about how things are going in putting things together for next season.
