PICKERINGTON, Ohio (Feb. 13, 2004) -- Upon further review by AMA Pro Racing, the five-second penalty issued to Grant Langston at round 6 of the THQ AMA Supercross Series, Feb. 7, 2004 in San Francisco has been rescinded.

A three-person appeal board organized by AMA Pro Racing has decided to overturn the points deduction penalty assessed to Kevin Windham. Windham had been docked 10 points by AMA Pro Racing MX/SX Series Manager Steve Whitelock for an incident involving fellow rider David Vuillemin at Round 2 of the AMA Supercross Series. In the opinion of Whitelock, Windham engaged in unsafe and unsportsmanlike riding by intentionally making contact with Vuillemin on lap one of the main event.

The appeal board found that while points penalties are with merit and necessary, Windham's actions in this case did not violate the AMA Supercross/Motocross Rulebook.
