Default Fontana Results **Spoiler**

Watched the new SPEED program for AMA Pro Racing. Not too bad. Showed quite a bit of the superbike race from Daytona. Wonder how much coverage they'll have time for with the double race from Fontana. Maybe just cover the first race and do the second race the following week?

There was more excitement at Fontana after the races were over. The following link contains results from some of the racing. You were warned.

What did hacking actually say? Was he right? enquiring minds want to know.

I can't imagine being suspended for "disrespect for the media". They deserve none. It would be like disrespecting pond scum or old socks.

First- DiSalvo over re-acted. Riders talk amoungst themselves during post race interviews. It happens. However, Race one- Hacker displayed a lack of respect in his late enterence and the way he acted was totally disrespectful to the media event. Race two- he was full of sour grapes that the Buell walked away with it- again. He showed his ASS as it were and Jason probably had enough of his attitude. Hacker left the press conference muttering obscene things and DMG had enough of his piss poor attitude.
I like Hacker. I'm one of his biggest fans, but his attitude and his actions were not befit of a Professional roadracer. He deserved the suspension.

And here's some transcript from the post race interview.
Soup :: Sunday Daytona Sport Bike Press Conference Transcript :: 03-23-2009

Note in the article of my first post, they say he spouted off a string of profanities as he was leaving the press conference area. Sounds like emotions were running high.
