Back on the trailer boys. You been busted.

MotoAmerica has made an announcement regarding the disqualification of Jake Gagne from Fresh N Lean Progressive Yamaha Racing. Gagne's disqualification stems from his second-place finish in race two during the eighth round of the 2023 MotoAmerica Medallia Superbike Championship, held at Circuit of The Americas.

Upon sample testing conducted during the COTA round, it was discovered that the fuel used in Gagne's Yamaha YZF-R1 did not meet the 2023 AMA/FIMNA MotoAmerica regulations, which mandate the use of VP MGP fuel for all competitors. Consequently, Gagne forfeits the 20 points associated with his second-place finish. However, this disqualification does not impact Gagne's standing in the MotoAmerica Medallia Superbike Championship, as he had already secured his third consecutive title in the preceding round at Pittsburgh International Race Complex.

In the second race at COTA, Gagne had finished four seconds behind Josh Herrin of Warhorse HSBK Racing Ducati NYC and had maintained a similar lead over PJ Jacobsen, who secured the third spot riding his Tytlers Cycle Racing BMW M 1000 RR. Following Gagne's disqualification, the overall standings have been adjusted, with Jacobsen now occupying the second position behind Herrin, while Bobby Fong of Wrench Motorcycles takes the final podium spot.

The only alteration in the championship points standings pertains to the fourth and fifth positions, with Richie Escalante from Vision Wheel M4 ECSTAR Suzuki and Mathew Scholtz of Westby Racing swapping places. With this change, Escalante concludes the season in fourth place, one point ahead of Scholtz.
