AMA Pro Racing hires David McGrath

AMA Pro Racing is proud to announce that longtime motorcycle racing veteran David McGrath has joined the Daytona Beach organization as Race Director and as a key member of its competition department.

McGrath has an extensive 25 year career in virtually every aspect of motorcycle roadracing and enjoyed a successful stint as a rider. McGrath then progressed into a management role as crew chief for many successful riders and racing programs, which then led to key positions with a number of top motorcycle organizations and manufacturers including Dunlop, Vance & Hines, Buell and American Honda. McGrath’s responsibilities have included crew chief, head of research and development departments and overall race and support department management.

David McGrath Speaks…

"I have had the opportunity to work with some really talented people during my career" said McGrath, "and I’ve done just about every job in the four corners of the paddock. I am excited to be a part of making AMA Pro Racing as good as it can be and if we can get the motorcycling community all pushing in the same direction, I feel we can see this sport achieve the success it so richly deserves."

David Atlas, COO and Managing Member of AMA Pro Racing welcomed McGrath to the Company, "I am delighted to be adding David to our excellent staff. He will bring a wealth of experience to the sport and he fits in perfectly with the very capable group that we have assembled for this season starting at Daytona and beyond."

McGrath is married and is the father of triplets. He is now in the process of relocating to Florida and will be operating full time out of the Daytona Beach headquarters of AMA Pro Racing.

McGrath doesn’t hide his love of the sport, "You could say I have an obsession with this sport and it is a dream come true for me to be a part of a group of people who are as devoted to motorcycle racing as I am."
