Altus Motorsports’ Kayla Yaakov, age 14, made some great moves under braking on the last lap and crossed the finish line first, apparently winning MotoAmerica Junior Cup Race Two and becoming the first female to win a MotoAmerica race.

Before the podium ceremony, however, MotoAmerica officials ruled that Yaakov, and others, had passed under yellow flag conditions. Yaakov was docked two positions, dropping her to third and elevating Max Van to first place, giving him his career-first MotoAmerica race win.

The penalties assessed are not noted on the results sheet below.
