Saillant added that the AMA will continue to check tires in the field to ensure compliance and will, at its discretion, send tires to an outside lab to assure accuracy and impartiality."Utilizing a tire that is not in compliance will result in a Category 1 penalty being levied against the rider," he said.

"While the Grand National Singles Championship has addressed the needs of newer pro riders, it's been difficult for many of our younger riders to break into the Grand National Twins class," said Ken Saillant, AMA Director of Flat Track."This class is being created specifically so riders can gain experience on twin cylinder equipment in their efforts to move up the ranks."
Saillant went on to say the new class will be similar to the old AMA Junior classification.
The class will be open to all Basic Expert License holders.The class is also open to any GNC licensed rider with three years experience or less who has not scored a point on GNC Twins equipment.These riders will choose which license they would like to have for the season.Riders that have been out of the GNC series for five years or more will also be eligible for this class along with other AMA Professional licensed riders from other disciplines.
"The goal is to build riders to Grand National ability with a more progressive and smoother transition to Grand National Twins," added Saillant."There will not be an automatic advancement system for this season, but one will be considered for 2008 and beyond."
Long term plans call for the class to utilize stock OEM equipment, exclusively.Initially expanded equipment eligibility will be in place as the class is developed.Eventually, there will be a phasing out of the current purpose built racing equipment as the class evolves.Saillant said that the development of this class is part of AMA Racing's overall strategic plan to revitalize Flat Track racing."Similar to when we created dual championships (GNC Twins and GNC Singles) to increase rider and brand participation, this effort is also designed to grow the sport," commented Saillant."The objective here is to both create a path and incentive for competitors to race twin-cylinder equipment as well as encourage increased brand participation."
Saillant added that teams and riders were informed of the new direction at the season opener in Daytona Beach on Wednesday, and the news was "extremely well received."
