AURORA, Ill (November 27, 2002) - In response to the AMA's recent press releases and subsequent lawsuit, Clear Channel Entertainment - Motor Sports today released the following statement.

The statement released by Ken Hudgens, Clear Channel Entertainment's vice president of marketing.

"Clear Channel Entertainment -- Motor Sports is the promoter of the AMA Supercross Series and the THQ World Supercross GP Series of which the U.S. championship events are a part.

AMA Pro Racing acknowledged and agreed to this 'series within a series' concept from the outset of our new contractual relationship with them last spring - in the contract itself, in our many discussions with them, and in their statements to the press.

AMA Pro Racing apparently now has a dispute with the FIM, the international sanctioning body of which it is an affiliate, over whether AMA recognizes FIM's ultimate authority over the conduct of motorcycle racing sanctioned by its affiliates when such events are part of a world championship. That is not Clear Channel Entertainment - Motor Sports' dispute, and it will have no effect on the upcoming supercross season, which kicks off in Geneva, Switzerland on December 7, 2002."
