On July 20, 2013 right before starting the first moto in the 450 class at Washougal, Team MotoConcepts Racing (MCR) crew member Jeff Alessi pointed a green laser light directly into the eyes of competitor Ryan Villopoto as he prepared to start. The laser was bounced back and forth across his goggles.

Villopoto had a GoPro strapped to his bucket and caught the whole thing on tape . As he drops his head to watch the gate, a green laser light flashes back and forth across his visor. By dropping his head the light becomes visible on the helmet visor. After the race, Villopoto and his crew members alerted officials about the incident.

Jeff Alessi and his Father Tony Alessi have both been banned from the remaining Nationals. Heres the proof

you can see the laser on the tip of his visor around the Monster logo as he drops his head at the 14 second mark
