Race Results – Indianapolis MotoGP

Race results from the Indianapolis MotoGP, round 11 of 18.
REVISED: James Ellison drops from 14th to 15th "for shortcuting the track".

Nicky Hayden did not start after being briefly knocked unconscious in an accident during qualifying, while Casey Stoner also crashed in qualifying, tearing ligaments in his ankle, but chose to start.

Hector Barbera was ruled out of competition after an accident in Friday practice and was replaced by Toni Elias for the remainder of the weekend.

CRT wild-cards Steve Rapp (Attack Performance) and Aaron Yates (GPTech) made their MotoGP race debut.

Let's see now: If there was any race where Ben Spies was going to go all-out and try to put one bit of success on an abysmal season, it'd be at Indy. If there was one race where he could seriously challenge for the win this year, it'd be at Indy. If there was one race where he could seriously damage Lorenzo's lead over Pedrosa and Stoner, it'd be at Indy. If there's one race where his mechanics can't put a motor together properly to the point that it blows up while he's challenging for the win, it'd be at Indy. Makes you wonder what's really going on . . . . .

Yamaha Factory Racing should be held liable for giving Ben Spies such ****ty support this year. Wasting Ben's time in some sort of false pretense that they actually have to riders worth interest on their team. YFR is a farse.
