PICKERINGTON, Ohio (February 24, 2006) – AMA Pro Racing has
announced that Ricky Carmichael has been penalized 25 points for using
illegal fuel at round six of the Amp’d Mobile AMA Supercross Series at
Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, Calif., on February 11.
Fuel samples from eight motorcycles were collected at the San Diego round and the sample from the motorcycle of Ricky Carmichael was found to be in non-compliance. Fuel from the motorcycles of Mike Alessi, Grant Langston, Jeremy McGrath, Nate Ramsey, Chad Reed, Andrew Short and James Stewart was found to be in compliance.
As is required by the AMA Supercross/Motocross rulebook, the samples were sent to a certified testing lab which confirmed the results of the testing.
AMA Pro Racing has required the use of unleaded fuel in the AMA Supercross Series and the AMA Motocross Championship since the 2004 racing season.
