Wayne was there in Texas supervising the second round of the fourth MotoAmerica series that surely will re-start that production line that brought some many Americans to enlighten the world stage. Six years ago, American national racing was on its knees. The usual problems of money and politics had engulfed a series that was once the envy of the world. Rainey, who had already given so much to a sport that had thrown at him the very pinnacle and lowest pit of despair, decided it was time to do something about it. Together with the likes of Paul Carruthers, son of former 250 cc World Champion Cal and mentor to Kenny Roberts when he led the American charge into Europe, they planned the MotoAmerica project. It’s been tough, and Wayne admitted at the weekend that they were still a few years away but an American rider back into the entry list had been achieved. They are moving forward, and who better to be at the helm.
