Ben Spies making a return to racing?

https://www.instagram.com/p/BZ1lSR0jrgf/

Been reading about the rumors he's racing Motoamerica next year for the past couple days.

Probably sees Elias and says hell, if one washed up motogp rider can do it...



Looks like it's real.

I hope he has a good run next year. Those Guys have more talent in their Pinky than I have in my whole body.

Re: Ben Spies making a return to racing?

Spies was on the fast track. On Suzuki in AMA he beat the best. On Yamaha in WSBK he won. Despite having the "rookie rule" in Motogp, his timing was impeccable and he slotted into a factory ride alongside Lorenzo after winning rookie of the year.

He was the rising star of motogp and immensely talented.

I can't wait to see him in motoamerica tearing it up on local tracks again.
