Owensboro's Nicky Hayden, former MotorGP Champ, got his first World Superbike victory Sunday at Sepang! Nicky led every lap of the race, and fought off Davide Giugliano with a 1.254s lead.

Nicky spoke with Crash.net after his victory. His last win came in 2006 and here's what he had to say about being back on top.

It's been a long time since my last win unfortunately! I wish it wasn't so long but that's the reality. That first GP win was something special, but this feels great. I've had a couple of dry years, but I never stopped trying. I got the opportunity here in Superbike, when at the end of last year I can tell you I never had a lot of opportunities. Also not a lot of people in Superbike were real interested. So to be able to still do some good races. Really happy. (Crash.net)
