2011 Indy MotoGP: Highlights (Video)


2011 MotoGP

The MotoGP Championship headed to American shores for the second and final time of 2011 Sunday, the 17-rider grid vying for points at the 2.6-mile Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The track, which was refurbished early this summer, brought many difficulties for the riders, such as slippery conditions on the new pavement from turns 5 through 16.

But regardless of conditions, one rider who called the Indy circuit his least favorite on the 18-race MotoGP schedule, Casey Stoner, was unstoppable over the weekend.

After securing the pole, the Repsol Honda rider dominated Sunday’s race, leading 21 of 28 laps. The Australian would finish over four seconds ahead of his teammate Dani Pedrosa, with the American Ben Spies third aboard the Yamaha Factory Racing M1.

Attached above are IMS video highlights of Sunday’s Red Bull Indy Grand Prix.
