Nicky Hayden came to terms with his Big Red Machine. He was right there pushing at the front the whole race. A dominating pass into Third a few corners from the Checkers was for naught as he got out horse powered across the stripe. Nick finally gets a Ducati he can ride and Honda find all kinds of power. Ben Spies did what we expected of him,rode a fine,forceful race into a very competitive Fifth. This is going to be a great season with some Yanks on the Podium.
