A fair amount of good news came out of the MotoGP weekend in Indianapolis. First of all, we got to see Marc Marquez continue his dominance of the premier class, which is great for him, wonderful for Honda, and a relief for us, since we named him Motorcyclist of the Year for 2013. It would terrible if the heavy mantle of this award were to weigh the young man down. As Indy suggests, he seems to be coping well. The morning before the main event, word came down that Indianapolis Motor Speedway was, in fact, going to host the 2014 MotoGP round it has a contract for. Prior to the announcement, broad speculation was that next year's event was in danger. After all, there are three MotoGP rounds in the US, including Laguna Seca and Austin, and the grapevine was humming that Dorna would prefer to have just two races in the colonies. Ultimately, IMS said 2014 is a lock and that it is working closely with Dorna to continue the relationship.
