Hayden Schultz wasn’t sure he could get his race bike back together after a crash at the previous round, but thanks to Paul Diener and the crew at Indian Motorcycles of Lafayette, Indiana, he was able to get his bike repaired and looking better than ever.

Hayden and the bike made the trek to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey, California to race in round four of the eight-race of the 2014 AMA Pro Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson XR1200 Series. Hayden finished eighth in the single 11-lap race on Saturday afternoon on the challenging road course after racing with a group of riders all fighting over fourth place.

Hayden qualified in sixth place after picking up time in the Saturday morning qualifying session, and he started on the outside of the second row for Saturday’s race. At the start, he fell in with the battle for fourth place, making passes but unable to make them stick for more than a few corners.

“Steve [Rapp] and Danny [Eslick] pulled away from our group, but we kept passing and repassing each other,” said Hayden. “I could pass in a few corners but just couldn’t make them stick for a whole lap. On the last lap, I pushed hard into the last turn and tried to get a good drive, but I got kicked out of the seat and lost some time on the guy ahead of me.”

Hayden still sits in eight place in the season points standings.

Hayden’s next event of the 2014 AMA Pro Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson XR1200 Series will be at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio, July 19-20, 2014.

Hayden is proud to receive support from Indian Motorcycles of Lafayette (Indiana), Lenny Albin/ Nitron USA, Chili Pepper Racing, Arai, Axo, Racer Gloves, TCX Boots, Silkolene, Leatt, Leo Vince, Speedmob, Moto Skiveez, Spy Optic, and Anthony & Joanne Cardarelli.
