Spain's Marc Marquez cruises to sixth MotoGP win Texas

Marco Bezzecchi does a wheelie at the end of the Moto3 in Argentina

Having spent much of the session playing second fiddle to Honda's Marc Marquez, Iannone pulled out an fantastic lap of 2m04.599s on the last lap of the session to beat Marquez - victor of all five MotoGP races at Austin so far - by 0.056 seconds.

Marquez remained settled to the chequered flag to claim his first win of the season, with Vinales and Iannone completing the top three, the latter taking his first podium as a factory Suzuki rider. The reigning world champion continued his domination on the American soil as he cruised to his sixth successive win in Austin.

The 25-year-old Spaniard had started fourth after collecting a three-place grid penalty in qualifying but seized the lead on the opening lap before disappearing into the distance at the Circuit of the Americas. "So tomorrow I'll start from fourth".

Maverick Vinales was third fastest, 0.264s off the pace, ahead of Yamaha team-mate Valentino Rossi.

Kyle Busch pulls away at Richmond for 3rd Cup win a row
Kurt Busch and younger brother Kyle Busch are running 1-2 during the second stage of the NASCAR Cup Series race at Richmond. Truex had the top vehicle during a 95-lap period in the second half of the race, leading in stretches of 46 and 32 laps.

Iannone made a great start to snatch the lead going into the first corner, but Marquez made his move at Turn 12 to surge back in front. Behind him, there wasn't much action either. I crashed and had to take my second bike for the second run.

After today's race, there's a reshuffle in the championship standings again as Dovizioso (46) now leads the tally from Marquez by just one point.

Dani Pedrosa meanwhile put in a heroic performance to put his Honda inside the top ten despite suffering with the broken wrist injury he picked up in an incident with Johann Zarco in Argentina, while Danilo Petrucci managed to clear Q1 and qualify tenth.

The former champion was also passed by Tito Rabat and Aleix Espargaro, and ended his day in 11th, while Rabat went on to steal eighth from Miller. He qualified on pole but was demoted to 4th for blocking Maverick Vinales.
