PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) Board Chairman Rick Gray today thanked the members of the AMA Pro Racing Board of Directors for their service to the organization. The single Pro Racing Board is being replaced by a group of rulesmaking committees that will each focus on a single racing discipline.

The Pro Racing Board has been in existence since 1994. It currently consists of Chairman P.J. Harvey, along with members Cary J.C. Agajanian, Ray Blank, Mike Buckley, Paul Dean, Jeff Nash, Kevin Schwantz and John Ulrich.

"These individuals have volunteered their time and effort for years to help improve the AMA's professional-racing program," said Gray. "Much of the progress we have made in gaining wider exposure and recognition of our sport is directly attributable to their contributions."

In coming weeks, the AMA will announce the members of the new committees that will develop equipment standards and rules for AMA pro competition in road racing, motocross/supercross, flat track, supermoto and hillclimb.
