    There’s no better place to crowned a World Champion…than at home. Exhibit O: MotoGP Star Casey Stoner, who officially claimed his second World Championship Title this past weekend after dominating the Australian GP from Pole before a raucous Aussie crowd at Phillip Island Circuit. In a scenario that couldn’t be scripted any better – O’s speed demon needed only a fifth-place finish (11 points) to seal the deal on the Title. And he over-delivered, as always. Raging out of the gates – Casey claimed the lead – followed by Nicky Hayden and Marco Simoncelli.
