The fans in New Orleans got a treat Saturday Night, the sound and smell of premix coming from Renner’s YZ. It may have been missed by a few, but it was noticed by many more.
When Renner got the the dome he was immediately told that AMA Tech wanted to check his bike out, they tagged it for a post race inspection.
Ricky qualifyed in 39th place against the fastest lites rider’s in the country. Not only was his 125 faster than enough 250f’s to make the night show, he was also faster than 8 450′s.
AMA Tech declared it a 125cc.
Ricky said the 125 and the tight track didn’t go well together, he finished his heat race in last. He said he knew he couldn’t make it, but he wanted to make some noise for the crowd. RacerX described it as “A Sweet New Orleans Jazz Solo”
Was he at a disadvantage on the 125? Of course. 125 Vs. 250, easy math.
Does the AMA think this is fair? Yes they do.
