Thunder Valley 450 Moto 2

Following a review of this past weekend’s race at Thunder Valley, MX Sports Pro Racing has made the determination that both Justin Barcia and Jason Anderson were in violation of section 2.11.a, On Track Regulations, of the 2017 AMA Pro Racing Rules for Motocross Competition.

a. Riders must remain on the marked course. The course will be marked by track markers, boundary markers, hay bales, tuff blocks, dirt mounds, etc..  If the marking devices are knocked down, the rider must stay on the original marked course.

Jason Anderson has also been found in violation of section 2.11.b, On Track Regulations, of the 2017 AMA Pro Racing Rules for Motocross Competition. 

b. A rider leaving the course may continue the race by properly re-entering the course at the closest point to where the rider left the course, without gaining an advantage. If a rider leaves the course for any reason, the rider must immediately slow down to a safe speed so as not to endanger life or limb of other riders, crew members, officials, or the public.   It will be the responsibility of the Race Director or his designee to determine whether the rider gained an advantage upon re-entry or failed to slow down after leaving the course.  A rider may be determined to have gained an advantage without gaining a position. 

Both riders have received Official Warnings as a result of these violations. Jason Anderson has further been fined $2,500 for his excessive speed while off the marked course. This fine has been suspended, pending no further violations.
