Since Rob has taken over the AMA there have made many positive changes to the organization. Most recently they have added new member incentives. The new organization has become very proactive in keeping members informed about government initiatives that restrict the rights of motorcyclists. In addition, the AMA has made changes to their infrastructure so they can better handle future membership growth. They also have some new faces on their board of directors.
Ezra Lusk, Former AMA Supercross Lites Champion
"Yogi" has remained a favorite with Motocross and Supercross fans throughout the years, even after his retirement. Last fall he came out of retirement to compete at the Rockstar Energy Drink U.S. Open inside Las Vegas’ MGM.
