After qualifying on the front row for the Indianapolis MotoGP, Nicky Hayden confirmed that he will 'do a few laps' on a dirt track bike at the Indy Mile this (Saturday) evening - where Hayden is to be a guest Grand Marshal.
"I told Ducati if I was on the front row, least I could do is get a couple laps [on a dirt track bike]. I'm going to go out, ride around... not sign up for the heat races or nothing like that. But definitely I'm looking forward to it," said Hayden.
"I haven't ridden a dirt track since 2002, it will be fun to put the steel shoe on and run a couple laps. See if I remember how to do it, get my foot down and get a little bit dirty, but it's pretty cool.
"I love dirt track, that's where my roots are, I'm a dirt tracker, and it's going to be pretty neat."
