What a mess. Hopefully they can get their act together and get this going soon. In the meantime yes we still have Indy (and Laguna), and may continue to have both as well as Austin/COTA. Now we just need some American riders competing at the top of the MotoGP grid, not just in the top 10.
Just saw this, Spies has signed with the Pramac Ducati team to ride their satellite Ducati MotoGP bike in 2013 (along with Andrea Iannone who moves up from Moto2). But I doubt Spies is going to do any better on the Ducati than he did in years with Yamaha.
