These photos speak for themselves, but you guessed it, Nicky Hayden was literally getting his knee down, with no puck in the way, at yesterday’s Indianapolis Grand Prix. As in flesh/tarmac interface. Yuck.
Hayden tore off the knee puck and a good portion of his leathers when he caught it on the curbing during a front end slide on the third lap. Unfazed, Nicky continued his pace, finishing the race in [Spoiler Alert!] sixth place.
Posting these pictures on Twitter, Hayden said, “Left a lil skin on the track but in the top 3… No pain no gain!!!”
In other news, Fox News plans to alert Child Services of Earl Hayden’s neglect.
