Next Race - Saturday April 26th 10AM Point Race # 2
Local Club Member travels out west to compete in National USAC .25 races.
Ryan Hatherill Placed 6th in A-Main in San Bernardino, Ca.
Ryan's next race was in Phoenix, Arizona in the Valley of The Sun.
Ryan placed 6th in the A-Main Event.
However, there is much more to this story.
Ryan was in 3rd place with 2 laps to go when the 2nd place car made several careless mistakes. The 2nd place car had a lot of trouble trying to get around the local Heavy Honda favorite the whole race. Under caution the 2nd place car shoved the Leader into the wall effectively ending her day.
The driver was black flagged (DQ'd) for this flagrant foul. He left the track passing cars under caution breaking yet another rule.
It looked like Ryan would get his first National victory. Ryan took the #1 spot. 7 caution laps later, USAC told the DQ's driver to get back in his car and get back into the race.
We couldn't believe it! No one Could !!
USAC Had re-written the Rule Book on the spot!
