No TIVO but want to watch the AMA races

I haven't got a TIVO or DVR yet, but still want to be able to watch the AMA races when I want to. Does anyone know if we have any equivalent to Dorna's site for the MotoGP races? DVD's or videos for sale?

Its amazing to me that its so hard to see AMA races unless you camp out in front of the tube and so easy to see MotoGP!

All right! Let's do it. I was supposed to go to T2's on Saturday but wound up mixing 19 80lb bags of concrete at my wife's direction for a garden wall! I missed the Superbike race and watched some of the first 30 laps of the FX race then got back to work when I thought Miguel had it wrapped. My wife, who ironically was watching the race as I was slaving in the backyard saw the crash but could't tell me who it was!!!! Speed reran it at 1:00 Monday, as if we people who want to watch the races don't have jobs.

Dude - Buy a Tivo - They are very cheap now and you shan't regret it - I have not sat and watched live TV or a commercial in lord knows how long

Got to buy tires first! They don't last as long but they smell better than a TIVO.

Group buy? Could it really be much cheaper than what Matt sells for mounted up at the track?

Matt sells Dunlops only at the track. I run Pirelli's for example.

Yeah, Directv canceled the lifetime purchase years ago. I wouldn't have minded buying it, at the time TIVO was $10/month. now it's $5/month, so the $200 lifetime buy takes twice as long to pan out.
