Don't know if it would be a combined points-paying race but that would be epic. Hosting a USGP is the goal and what needs to happen is for the top AMA riders compete in the event. It would require a lot of cooperation from a lot of people with competing ... more »

This is the internets. Doesn't matter what my sources are. LOL! Seriously though, you know how rumors are... usually some of it is true, some of it isn't. If you want the polished PR piece you can find that in the moto media at some point in the future. ... more »

You have to respect loyalty Shawn, absolutely. However, are Diane and Ralph going to be promoting the race that replaces Southwick? No. MX Sports will be working with a new promoter so why couldn't it have been the new promoter of Southwick? It doesn't ... more »

Maybe, time will tell. The new promoter is working on plans for many improvements to the track and facilities. I think it’s unfortunate that perhaps MX Sports didn’t do everything it could have done to keep Southwick on the National schedule but at this ... more »

No, they tried to retain the National but it didn't work out.

Yup, no more National.

Well, sorry to say, but the word is the Southwick National aint gonna happen in 2014. Dammit. Gotta give it up to the guys who tried to make it happen. It was clearly an uphill battle so you have to appreciate the effort. Best of luck to whoever takes ... more »

Don't know about that but if KDub is the promoter... then what? Also, if it does go to a new venue, wouldn't that be a new promoter DC has to work with?

Well, I guess at least part of the rumor is true. I agree the KW part seems a bit far-fetched but who knows.

No doubt Shawn. But the sad fact is that unfortunately most everything these days is about money.

I heard a rumor a couple days ago about the Southwick National that is really intriguing but haven’t seen anything here or anywhere else. Maybe it’s BS but if it’s true it could be great news. I know a lot of people, myself included, who are really bummed ... more »

Good idea! Might want to think about an auction at the race too. For a good cause such as this, chances are a few top pros will donate some gear. I've been to a couple charitable events where gear from RC, JS, etc go for big bucks and made a big difference ... more »

In addition, perhaps if Langston is willing to get involved on some level he could add some star power to the effort and will help add legitimacy (in the eyes of potential donors) to the event. Who knows, maybe he would be willing to ride part of the ... more »
