2011 Red Bull Indianapolis Moto Grand Prix
Casey Stoner on his way to victory at Indianapolis.
Casey Stoner was fast all weekend. And that was an understatement.
The Australian Honda Repsol rider beat his teammate Dani Pedrosa by almost five seconds at the historic Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Sunday after starting from first on the grid. All weekend, Stoner had been very vocal about the recently repaved track, but still managed to produce excellent times results, even setting a new best lap with a 1'38".
Stoner's teammate Dani Pedrosa took second place, while Ben Spies rode as the fastest American racer, finishing third.
