Question Red flag infringement !!

OK, a club level race (1000cc), not AMA, is underway.
The last lap is red flagged due to a nasty accident that requires immediate attention.
Everybody raises hand, comes off the throttle and stops racing.
One rider starts hoiking wheelies on the way back to the pits.

How would this be generally handled over there in Texas.
Just curious as this happened last weekend over here and the fallout has created quite a stir.

On the real, it would depend on who was doing the whoolies. Most likely they would get yelled at and maybe asked to leave the race...maybe.

wasn't it Ben Spies last year at Oak Hill that got into trouble for doing wheelies?

It usually depends on who and where they did it. Everybody likes to see a show.

I cant think of a single riders meeting, where we were not told not to be doing wheelies. If you choose to ignore this then you will pay the price. Most likely the first time you will be told not to do it again and it will end there.

He's been disqualified for that weekend and had all his points deducted,
he's been banned from attending the next meeting altogether,
pretty much every marshal is calling him a c@nt for endangering their lives and those of his fellow compititors as they see it.

Seems a tad harsh to me but over here alot of marshals believe the whole show revolves around them
that's not excusing him though, the race was under the red flag and he knew it.

Sounds like he would have got off alot lighter over there

It is pretty hard to take the cowboys out of Texas no matter what they are riding.

I'am pretty sure Walter(cmra race director) would haqve dolled out some very similar punishment (every racer knows a red flag is serious business)& the Ben thing was during the spectator lap when he was wheeling a little crf 50

Not this racer it would seem
This was a club race last weekend,
heard today that he was warned last season bout some of his antics so not a representative case.
I thought it a bit harsh but if he's been warned before.........

The no wheelie rule may not be covered in the riders meeting but it is in the CMRA rule book.
