The Kentucky Kid will live forever in Owensboro Kentucky. His impact on the sport and everyone he has met will live on. A statue honoring Nicky will be placed in front of the Owensboro Convention Center. Nicky served as an ambassador for the racing world in his representation of Owensboro, Kentucky, and the United States. The ceremony will take place June 8th at 5:30pm during Friday After 5.
June 9th will also be an opportunity to celebrate the impact Nicky has left. June 9th, or 6/9, is indicative of his racing number 69. Tom Watson, Owensboro KY Mayor, will declare that Saturday Nicky Hayden Day.
Show up and celebrate the life of The Kentucky Kid.
