Mlading DQ'ed... I'm satisfied!

Unless you tell me that he was using a 2009 cranshaft, which would still put it on the Non-Homologated list... they cheated!

One good thing is though... they can't take away his family, heart or fans? WTF???

I think it's BS! It all just seems a little petty and mistifying. Or... it may mean Spies is just that damn good they have to cheat even within the team to beat him.

Petty and Mistifying that Manufacturers cheat? I don't know Wimsy, they have been doing it for as long as I can remember and getting caught every so often. It sure looks fishy that only Mladin and Hayden were caught whereas Spies wasn't, perhaps there is turmoil within the ranks of teammates afterall and Spies crew chief was smarter than the others?

I sure will love to know the excuse that Suzuki will present for it.

The deal with Spies not getting busted on Friday was that though the entire team felt they were not in the wrong after VIR, Spies crew chief went out of his way to make sure there were no issues with their bike and swapped their cranks for ones directly from a production bike. Mladin's and Hayden's crews were idiots for not doing the same thing just because they thought they were in the right.

That changes my perspective a little then. I was not aware this was not the first time. I completely disagree with cheating. It seems as the story unfolds, I am learning more.

Hmmmm..... prudence on Spies team served him well and further shows his level of skill. Good for him and his team.

Suzuki has until this or next Friday to come up with a decent rebutall, again, I can wait to see what they have to say about it.

About the only good drama of this year's AMA races is this debacle and I, for once, have to give it to the AMA guys, this was not a matter of whether the crankshaft made Mladin faster (he is already a fast Mofo), it was a simple matter of cheating (in short and sweet words! ) because one of his motorcycle components did not match a Homologated part.

I am sure that Honda, Yamaha & Kawasaki are now in some dark corner laughing about it because they haven't been caught as of yet but, on the other side of the token, who really gives a crap about whether the 4th to 10th position is cheating or not?
