Following the 450 main event in Foxborough, round 15 of Monster Energy AMA Supercross, the AMA announced it had fined Rockstar Energy Husqvarna’s Malcolm Stewart and Monster Energy/Yamaha Star Racing’s Eli Tomac…. for, uh, very different reasons.
According to the AMA penalty report, Malcolm violated rule 4.19.b and was fined $1,000. The rule, is well, in regards to a rider or crew member relieving themselves anywhere other than in a fixed or portable restroom.
b. Riders or crew members observed to be relieving themselves anywhere other than in a fixed or portable restroom will be fined a minimum of $1,000.
Swap Moto Live got a quote from Malcolm, which you can read here.
Tomac meanwhile violated rule 4.26.l.1, which reads as follows:
l. At the conclusion of the Main Event, the top five finishing riders and their motorcycles must go directly to a staging area located at the podium. Other riders outside of the top five may also be directed to the podium staging area.
- Failure to go to the designated podium staging area will result in a $1,000 fine. Further infractions of this rule will result in an increased fine at Race Direction’s discretion.
So, yeah, there you go.
