Racers in the AMA Superstock (formerly 750cc Supersport) class will have to wait to get their transponders because not enough transponders had been charged before the start of practice.

That’s what an AMA tech official said when asked why transponders were issued to Supersport (formerly 600cc Supersport) riders but not to Superstock riders prior to the start of practice.

Which meant that timing and scoring monitors showed about 10 factory 600cc Supersport men during the first Superstock practice at Daytona Wednesday morning, with no times shown for racers who will actually compete in the Superstock race. Supersport riders use the Superstock sessions as extra practice.

Transponders were also not issued for 250cc Grand Prix riders.

AMA officials were present at Daytona Speedway on Tuesday, the day before practice started, and have not explained why they didn’t charge the transponders in time to issue them to all entered riders before practice started on Wednesday.

In contrast, Formula USA officials issued all transponders at the beginning of official F-USA practice at Daytona last Thursday.
