Might as well give the title to Spies.
I wonder if there can or will be an appeal??
From both races at VIR.
I thought they checked the top 5. Definitely the top 3 finishers. I think any further down the field would need a protest filed.Do they automatically check the bikes after the race or does there need to be a protest filed?
i was thinking the same. now the question is what was the yoshi team thinking?...were they under the wrong impression?Some good points from another forum:
What if everything they did was legal and it came down to something like the weight of the sample cranks sent to the AMA from Suzuki were less than Mat's crank due to machine tolerance differences. The first crank cut is usually lighter than the last one because of dulling. Mat may have had a disadvantage for all we know. I am only speculating though.
