AMA Pro Racing Press Release
Fans that attend the 2009 Suzuki Big Kahuna Nationals at Virginia International Raceway will be able to give back to the community while enjoying the best that AMA Pro Road Racing has to offer. The event weekend, which features doubleheaders by AMA Pro National Guard American Superbike presented by Parts Unlimited and AMA Pro Daytona SportBike presented by AMSOIL, will take place August 14-16, 2009, and those visiting the scenic track in Alton, Va., have the opportunity to donate a can of food to a local charity.
“After so many great years of racing in the USA, I will retire from AMA racing at the end of the 2009 racing season in New Jersey.
My career has been long and above and beyond my wildest expectations. I won my first national championship on dirt bikes back in 1981 (28 years ago) and have had an amazing career ever since.
If I had my time again, I would not change a single decision I have made, in life or in racing.
I would like to thank my team for their constant hard work. Without these guys, the 80+ race wins and multiple championships would not have been possible.
