Cycle News Staff | May 4, 2011

Buried near the bottom of an AMA Pro Racing press release from the two-day test that concluded yesterday at Miller Motorsports Park in Utah was a paragraph of utmost importance if your name is Josh Herrin. Or Yamaha.Following a meeting at the track yesterday between AMA Pro Racing officials, Herrin and Graves Motorsports Yamaha personnel, Herrin’s suspension from the finish-line incident in the Daytona 200 has been dropped from one event (two races) to one race. That means Herrin will get to race in the second of two Daytona SportBike races at Infineon, May 14-15.

“The communication and shared understanding between parties was such that AMA Pro felt it was appropriate to move forward in this manner,” said AMA Pro Racing COO David Atlas in the release.
