I thinks MJ involvement in AMA is going to be good thing. Its obvious he only gets involved in things he truly loves... AMA is in a state of chaos. AMA has to many internal politics. An outsider like MJ can only have a positive impact. I truly think he can sell the AMA superbike probably better than the AMA organization. AMA needs somebody to shake things up....

yeah, MJ in the sport is going to bring big time visibility to AMA... MJ and his team is probably the best marketting AMA is going to get (besides Ducati winning).

He has always loved bikes and his father bought him a dirt bike when he was young (as the story goes). He has always admired motorcycles from afar, but due to his basketball contract, he was not allowed to RIDE!!!

Its a very interesting story on how he got involved in racing- mainly through meeting Montez Stewart in the streets of chicago.... Its too bad they had to let Monetz Stewart go, I was really hoping a guy that has a passion for motorcycle racer and came off the streets be competitive within a few years in superstock with a sponsered team.

Who on this board would'nt want to race for MJ motorsports and take our shot at the pros!!!!
