Report By David Swarts<BR><BR>Former racer Carry Andrew is poised to return to AMA Pro Racing as a Crew Chief three years after he was banned by Director Of Competition Merrill Vanderslice for repeatedly failing post-race tech inspections with bikes ridden by Nicky Hayden, Jason Pridmore and Mark Miller. Andrew, who has maintained all along that he was unfairly singled out and that he didn't do anything that other winning AMA teams don't do, now says he just wants to be able to get on with his life and build and tune race-winning bikes.<BR><BR>Andrew showed up at Willow Springs Sunday, February 18 with Team EBSCO Corona Suzuki's Vincent Haskovec and Tony "The Tiger" Meiring, Haskovec won the restarted Formula One race after leader Chuck Graves caught a false neutral and ran off in turn one, and Meiring finished second behind Attack Suzuki's Rich Alexander in 750cc Superstock.<BR><BR>Attack's Jason Pridmore finished second behind Haskovec in Formula One and also won the 750cc Superbike and 600cc Supersport races.<BR><BR>Aaron Clark led Heavyweight Twins on his Aprilia RSV Mille R until he almost highsided in turn nine, setting off the bike's tip-over switch, which turned off the ignition. Clark eventually figured it out and got going again, but could not regain the lead.<BR><BR>Aaron Gobert beat older brother Anthony Gobert heads up to win the Hyper Club Formula Two race, the race called by decision at the line. Both rode YZF-R6 Yamahas.<BR><BR>Back in his pit area, Andrew said of his return to AMA racing, "I'm really looking forward to it."<BR>
