2014 Indianapolis MotoGP Race Result: A Doohan Redux

Results Below:

Marc Marquez won his record-tying 10th race in a row Sunday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Jorge Lorenzo took the mid-race battle with Valentino Rossi to earn second. Rossi, who led the race early on, held on to third, more than four seconds behind the winner. Dani Pedrosa made up for third-row qualifying to grab fourth and Pol Espargaro completed a strong weekend with a fifth place after a late-race pass of Andrea Dovizioso. Bradley Smith, after a brutal high side during the previous day's qualifying, seized sixth -- also after a late pass of Dovizioso (7th).

Cal Crutchlow put his Ducati into eighth, his best showing on the Italian bike since the first race of the season. Scott Redding took ninth with Hiroshi Aoyama completing the top 10.

Under a cloudy sky but dry track, eight riders either crashed out or retired during the race, leaving every finisher in the points including a soon-to-retire American Colin Edwards II who finished 13th in his final MotoGP race in America.

The race began with Andrea Dovizioso leading into the first corner but surrendering that lead at Turn 2 to a hard-charging Rossi who had a blistering start from the second row. Dovizioso repassed Rossi two laps later.

Then the fun began.

Rossi repassed Dovizioso bumping him and sending both wide. Marquez and Lorenzo slipped through to grab first and second. Rossi repassed Lorenzo and settled in behind Marquez. Marquez ran wide and Rossi repassed him. With 21 laps to go, the top five in order were Rossi, Marquez, Lorenzo, Dovizioso and Iannone.

Initally, Rossi opened up a half-second gap. But five laps later, Marquez retook the lead. Lorenzo quickly closed the distance to Rossi and passed him with 12 laps to go. By this point, Marquez had opened a 1.2-second gap to second -- a distance he maintained the rest of the contest. Lorenzo opened a similar size gap to Rossi -- an order that didn't change for the rest of the race.

Marquez's 10th consecutive win marks the first time a rider has won 10 in a row since Austrailian Mick Doohan accomplished the feat in 1997 -- also as Repsol Honda rider.

2014 Indianapolis Moto2 Race Result: The Gap Narrows

Results Below:

Mika Kallio won a shortened Moto2 race after a red flag forced a restart at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Sunday. Maverick Vinales held on for second and Dominique Aegerter took third, 1.6 seconds behind the leader.

Tito Rabat finished fourth after runnng wide with four laps remaining which allowed both Vinales and Aegerter through. Kallio's win coupled with Rabat's finish reduced Rabat's championship lead to seven points over his Marc VDS teammate.

Simone Corsi took a lonely fifth, more than six second behind the winner. Another 12 seconds back, Sandro Cortese (6th), Hafizh Syahrin (7th) and Alex de Angelis (8th) crossed the line in a tight cluster. Ant West, winner in Assen, managaed a surprising ninth after getting caught up in the inital crash that led to the red flag and restart. Johann Zarco held on for tenth.

Kallio jumped out to an early lead at the race's initial start, holding a 1.2 second lead by the third lap. But on lap four at Turn 10, Azlan Shah, West, Mattia Pasini and Randy Krummenacher collided. 

The crash left Pasini unconscious and the race was red flagged immediately. Eventually, Pasini walked away but he was not allowed to race for precautionary reasons. The race director restarted the event as a new 16-laps race with the riders in their original grid positions.

Again, Kallio jumped out to a lead he would hold the entire race which saw Franco Morbidelli, Xavier Simeon, Thomas Luthi and Julian Simon all crash out.

2014 Indianapolis Moto3 Race Result: The First Of A First

Results Below:

Efren Vazquez won his first-ever Grand Prix Sunday when he jumped from Romano Fenati's slipstream down the front straight and passed him at the line at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Fenati held on for second and points-leader Jack Miller ended his race in third.

Vazquez maiden win put pushed him into second in the 2014 champioship. However, Miller's third place extended his overall championship lead to 21 points.

Alex Masbou took fourth in the tighly bunched finishing pack and Alex Rins managed fourth after a slight mistake by Alex Marquez (5th) in the final lap. Miguel Olivera -- who didn't finish the prior race in Germany -- took seventh, just in front of Juanfran Guevara.  Brad Binder and Jakub Kornfeil rounded out the top 10. John McPhee, who showed promising speed during practice, crashed out on the first lap.

Vazquez win comes after a strong showing all weekend. He led the final free practice and morning warm-up.

2014 Indianapolis Moto2 Qualifying Practice Result: Smart Riding Bags Pole

Results and summary of qualifying for Moto2 at Indianapolis:

Mika Kallio will start from pole for the second time this year, as he chases his Marc VDS Racing teammate in the Moto2 championship. With gray skies threatening over the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Kallio went out and pushed for a fast lap early. Though the rain never came, Kallio's strategy paid off: nobody could catch the Finn, and Kallio took his second pole of the season.

Kallio's teammate Tito Rabat will start from 2nd, despite a big highside at Turn 8 towards the end of the session when Rabat was pushing to catch Kallio. Domi Aegerter completes the front row, the Swiss Technomag rider carrying on his strong form from the Sachsenring. Johann Zarco heads up the second row on the Caterham Suter, starting ahead of Simone Corsi and Maverick Viñales.

Rabat was not the only rider to fall. There were a number of riders who crashed, especially at Turn 8, Turn 14 and Turn 16. Grip is improving as the surface is run in, but it is occasionally catching riders out.

2014 Indianapolis MotoGP QP Result: A Bridge Too Far

Results Below:

Marc Marquez put to rest any ideas that his sixth-place showing in the third free practice was the start of a trend. Wasting little time in Q2 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Saturday, Marquez dropped the fastest motorcycle lap ever at the historic track with seven minutes remaining in the session and then immediately improved on that lap with a 1'31.619.

As if that weren't ominous enough for the rest of the grid, Marquez has never lost a race at Indy in any class.

A quick Andrea Dovizioso closed within two-tenths on his Ducati -- a bike and rider combination that has shown genuine speed early in races this season, only to tail off in later laps as the bike chews through its tires.  Jorge Lorenzo completed the front row just a hair behind Dovizioso. Aleix Espargaro leads an all-Yamaha second row, closely followed by Valentino Rossi (5th) and the younger of the Espargaro brothers, Pol (6th).

Andrea Iannone, quick for much of the previous practices, couldn't match the late speed of Q2 and leads the third row in seventh. Surprisingly, Dani Pedrosa never found his form and will start Sunday's race in eighth. Pedrosa, who typically goes well at Indy and has won twice at the circuit, never seemed comfortable on the new surface and configuration, switching several times between the newly available medium compound and the standard hard to find extra speed. Bradley Smith, who suffered a massive highside at Turn 2, completed the third row. He has been cleared to race Sunday.

Stefan Bradl, who led the timesheet at the end of FP3, managed only tenth. Q1 escapees Scott Redding (11th) and Cal Crutchlow (12th) round out the fourth row.

2014 Indianapolis Moto3 QP Result: Ongoing Plans For Consolidation

Results Below:

Jack Miller's quest to extend his championship lead took a turn for the better at the Moto3 qualifying practice Saturday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Miller's 1'40.727 put him eight hundredths clear of Efren Vazquez (2nd) and championship contender Alex Marquez (3rd). The Moto3 front row for Sunday's race is separated by less than a tenth of a second.

The second row starts with an improving Romano Fenati. Fenati, who struggled initially at Indy, appears to have found something agreeable about the historic track and is a tenth of a second behind rival Miller. Juanfran Guevara surprised the field with a late run to fifth, closely followed by Jorge Navarro. John McPhee was the odd man out of the late run by both Guevara and Navarro and was relegated to seventh to lead the third row.

Francesco Bagnaia, Alessandro Tonucci and Karel Hanika completed the top 10. The lead group is only separted by a slightly more than half a second.
