Tribute to Nicky Hayden by Owensboro’s citizen – motorrio.com – Tanggal 08 Juni 2018 kemarin, masyarakat kota Owensboro meresmikan patung perunggu Nicky Hayden, dengan pose berdiri diatas motor Honda RC213V 2006, saat The Kentucky Kid menjadi juara dunia MotoGP 2006.

Patung yang berdiri di depan Owensboro Convention Center tersebut berukuran sesuai dengan aslinya dibuat oleh George Lundeen of Lundeen Sculpture di Loveland, Colorado. Yang membuat beda, bendera Amerika yang “dibawa” oleh Nicky adalah bendera asli yang terbuat dari kain, jadi bukan terbuat dari perunggu, sebagai penghargaan bagi sang The Kentucky Kid

“We would like to thank the City of Owensboro for their support on this project. Nicky loved this city and took great pride in representing it in a positive way, so it’s appropriate that he’ll be memorialized here,” said Tommy Hayden.

“It is with great pride that we as a community have the opportunity to continue ‘The Kentucky Kid’s’ legacy in his hometown,” said Owensboro Mayor Watson.

“We will have a lasting memorial to commemorate his accomplishments to not only OBKY but to the world. I want to thank the Hayden family for allowing us to partner with them on this truly eventful day.”

Mereka semua berharap dengan adanya patung The Kentucky Kid ini, masyarakat kota Owensboro bakal tetap meneruskan semangat dan pribadi Nicky Hayden yang terkenal low profile dan tidak sombong walaupun seorang juara dunia MotoGP!
