Hacking Disqualified From Sunday'S Superbike Race At Road America
PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- Jamie Hacking has been disqualified from the Sunday race of last weekend's (June 9-10) AMA Chevy Trucks U.S. Superbike race at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisc.
During the red flag break in Sunday's final, Hacking's Team Suzuki crew worked on his machine in the paddock area, a violation of the following passage in the AMA Pro Racing rulebook:
Chapter Two, Section I, Paragraph No. 4, "Only in the designated pit or work area may any adjustment, repair or refueling be made to competing motorcycles by pit crews during a race or during a red-flag period. Any motorcycle that enters the paddock/garage area will be prohibited from returning to the race track. Crash trucks retrieving disabled motorcycles from the track may pass through the paddock/garage area to deliver such motorcycles to the designated pit area."
Hacking will lose the points and purse he earned from his original 21st -place finish.
Official results and points are modified to reflect this change.
