Meanwhile, Rockstar Makita Suzuki teammate Hayden came into the weekend with the attitude that he was going to "win or die trying". On Saturday, the Kentucky native overcame a lackluster start, moved quickly through the field on his Rockstar Makita Suzuki GSX-R1000 and finished on the podium. On Sunday, he got the holeshot and led the multi-bike freight train for much of the race before suffering a get-off while in second place. Fortunately, Hayden wasn't harmed but neither was he able to rejoin the race. "Overall the weekend was pretty good," said Hayden. "Yesterday, we were on the podium and today my Rockstar Makita Suzuki GSX-R1000 was fast in the race and I was competing for a win. Unfortunately, I made a mistake and tipped over. It's definitely disappointing to end the season like that, but I went out trying and I feel good about that."
