At the end of the 2012 AMA Pro Vance & Hines XR1200 Series Championship, it all came down to the last race at NOLA Motorsports Park.

Slightly behind coming into the last straightway, Tyler O’Hara grabbed at Michael Barnes’ arm to slow it down. It worked – O’Hara crossed the checkered line first. As you’d probably expect, though, he was instantly punished seeing as all these races are filmed (especially the final straight – what was he thinking?) Amuse yourself here:
