We got so toasted yeterday from watching the event. We did not mind the heat, hunger and thirst during the time since the line for food & drinks is long enough to miss the race but after the last race and we are heading to the parking lot, we were so hungry, thirsty, tired and most of all SUNBURN!!! OUCH!!!...OUCH!!!...OUCH!!!

Traffic was really bad...

We left Sacramento at 4AM on 07/10 to get there before 9AM and we barely made it. The whole event was over at 4PM and we started to wait for the traffic to clear up at 4:30PM but we did not get back in Sacramento until 1AM on 07/11 but everything was worth it.

I can't get the smell and sound of the race out off my head. The whole experience is just overwhelming and I can't find the right words to explain my feelings . I think I'm in love again. lol

Here's the cover story...



Hayden leads 1-2 American finish in U.S. Grand PrixJuly 10, 2005

MONTEREY, Calif. (AP) -- Nicky Hayden became the first U.S. rider to win a world MotoGP race in five years Sunday, leading from start to finish to beat fellow American Colin Edwards in the U.S. Grand Prix.

Hayden celebrated the win -- his first in 38 MotoGP starts -- before a crowd of 57,000 at Laguna Seca Raceway by taking his father, Earl, along for the victory lap on the back of his Honda holding an American flag. ``This feels so good,'' Hayden said. ``I got a good start, I kept my head down and never let up. Thanks to the team for believing in me, thanks to my mom and dad and thanks to all the fans, waving and cheering me on. They gave me something I'll never forget.''

Edwards finished second, 1.941 seconds back to give the United States its first 1-2 finish on the MotoGP circuit since the 1993 Spanish Grand Prix.
Hayden, from Kentucky, is the first U.S. winner since Kenny Roberts took the 2000 Pacific Grand Prix in Motegi, Japan. Italian star Valentino Rossi finished third, snapping his five-race winning streak.
