    Casey Stoner’s points lead is officially solid. Oakley’s Australian MotoGP star powered past defending Champ Jorge Lorenzo in the 26th Lap at the Mazda Raceway in Laguna Seca in late July – claiming his fifth season victory and a 20-point advantage at the top of the standings. Despite some less than ideal testing, practices and qualifying, Sunday morning saw the team find their bike. An important factor in trumping Lorenzo, who logged in the fastest times all week and was clearly in form before crashing out on Saturday.
