AMA -Josh Hayes was disqualified following the post-race inspection ***SPOILERS***

Quote:
In an even bigger surprise than their 1-2 finish in the last year’s Daytona 200, Attack Kawasaki has just been awarded their second consecutive Daytona 200 1-2.
Race dominator Josh Hayes was disqualified following the post-race inspection, handing the win over Welsh rider Chaz Davies, bumping his teammate, Steve Rapp, up to second, and handing Larry Pegram the final spot on the (retroactively imagined) podium in his first ride on the Ducati 848.
Here's the official word from AMA Pro Racing:
"Josh Hayes Disqualified From Today’s Daytona 200
Josh Hayes was disqualified from today’s Daytona 200 following a customary and mandatory technical inspection of the top three finishers’ motorcycles in the Daytona 200, round one of the AMA Formula Extreme Series.
Upon this inspection, a technical infraction was found. The #1 Erion Racing Honda CBR600RR’s crankshaft was polished, surface treated and metal was removed from it. This is in violation of the 2008 AMA rulebook section 5.4, the text of which can be seen below.
Page 47: Rulebook Section 5.4
5.4 Multi-cylinder liquid cooled engines
The following engine components may not be altered from the originally homologated model except as noted:
b. Homologated crankshaft
1. Bearing surfaces may be polished or surface treated.
In addition, two other motorcycles were randomly picked to undergo technical inspections."
The following is the original race story written before the news of Hayes’ DQ broke:

I am a big Kawi fan, but I hate to see winning anything by default.
If Hayes bike did have a lightened and polished crank though, his position can't stand, that can be a noticable performance increase.
