SAN ANTONIO, TX (January 29, 2007) In response to the latest penalties levied by AMA Pro Racing due to alleged fuel violations at round three of the AMA Supercross Series in Anaheim, CA, VP Racing Fuels announced it is investigating the situation. “First, we have to determine if the fuels involved were, in fact, off-spec,” said Steve Burns, VP’s President and CEO. “With regard to two of the fuel samples involved, it’s highly unlikely the oxygen content could measure as high as AMA’s lab indicated, so we suspect there may have been some problems with the lab work.”
“We’re working with the AMA and the teams involved to obtain samples of the alleged ‘off-spec’ fuel, so we can have tests run by an independent lab, Burns continued. “We hope everyone involved reserves judgment until this analysis is completed. As soon as results are available, we’ll publicize them — hopefully later this week.
