2009 Laguna Seca MotoGP Qualifying Practice Result - Drama In Crash-Strewn Session

Results of MotoGP Qualifying Practice at Laguna Seca:

Big news was that both poleman Jorge Lorenzo and 3rd place man Casey Stoner had big highsides in the final few seconds. Lorenzo's was the worst of the two, the Spaniard injuring both his shoulder and his knee in a huge highside that was all too familiar of the crashes the Spaniard suffered last season. Casey Stoner was walking - or rather hobbling - beaten up but relatively uninjured. More news when we get it.
