Casey Stoner narrowed the gap in the MotoGP championship standings to 32 points after winning the US Grand Prix at Laguna Seca from main rival Jorge Lorenzo and team-mate Dani Pedrosa to keep alive his slim title hopes. The Australian, aggrieved at losing out on pole after being held up on Saturday, made his move with 11 laps remaining to out drag Lorenzo on the main straight and he was able to comfortably hold the Yamaha rider behind him until the chequered flag. Andrea Dovizioso finished fourth ahead of Britain’s Cal Crutchlow after home favourite Ben Spies crashed out of fourth place on lap ten before the corkscrew, a broken suspension looking to blame. Two-time Laguna Seca winner Nicky Hayden was sixth.
