In announcing the penalties, AMA Pro Racing SX/MX Series Manager Steve Whitelock stated Hansen has been fined $5000 and Grant has been fined $2000. Additionally, both riders have been placed on probation for the remainder of the 2005 racing season and further inappropriate behavior could result in a suspension of their AMA professional racing licenses."At Dallas, both riders engaged in actions that are detrimental to the sport of motorcycle racing," said Whitelock in announcing the penalties. "An on-track incident spilled over to additional altercations off of the track and that is completely unacceptable."Both riders were made aware of their penalties Friday morning in a meeting at the Pontiac Supercross.
