I just received a call that Joey Savatgy has been docked to eighth position. The Troy Lee Designs team placed a protest over Joey Savatgy's lack of re-entering the lane of the track he was racing when he crashed. He instead remounted in the next lane and continued on, thus gaining an advantage over Jordon Smith. With Joey being bumped to ninth, this places Jordon Smith up one spot and with the points lead at 160 points. Zach Osborne is second with 159 and Joey Savatgy third with 159 going into Las Vegas.

Note: the official ruling places Joey eighth, not ninth as I was originally informed.

I knew that was a wrong move by Savatgy. Could not believe he was even on the podium, then I remembered the AMA is in charge.

Dang, that seems a bit harsh. I was thinking maybe 2 spots. Don't think it was that much of an advantage.

Just watched the race on DVR and logged in here to see what happened with this. Looked to cut a large section of the track.

Well, that should make riders think twice. He finished roughly 40 sec ahead of 9th. Don't think he gained that much. A penalty was appropriate.

Savatgy just lost 8 points with this. Now the score's Savatgy 158 to Osborne's 159 going into Vegas. Not a good night for the Kawie guys......

Wow. Honestly my initial though reading this was that sounds harsh. I would have guessed. To dock him three spots That being said it was hard to tell on tv how much he cut the track and how many positions he gained and so on by doing that so maybe it's justified.

I dont think Savatgy intentionally cheated, I think he made a bad mistake/poor decision in the heat of the moment and I also completely agree with the penalty, but I am not going to call Savatgy a cheater.

Yeah, me too. I forgot to move Smith up a couple of points. So it's Smith 160, Osborne 159, and Savatgy 158,....right?

So, what I get out of it is the AMA/FIM weren't going to do anything on their own, and it took a protest to do the right thing.

I wonder how the punishment was determined? I would have docked him the time it takes to complete the section. If that put him in 9th, then good. I was thinking more like 5th.

Okay, if this is correct Osborne wins. KTM/Husky had a huge night by overcoming some heavy point deficits.
