Last year the Peoria Motorcycle Club changed the layout of the track, removing the famous single jump and replacing it with two jumps, This new layout forced the racers to cut their speed on the first jump so as not to jump directly into the face of the second. The new jumps, along with riding his much more powerful Indian Scout FTR750, required Hayden to make some changes to the bike. Luckily, Hayden was surrounded by a solid team that included his brothers, his father (Frankie Lee), and JD Beach along with his temporary crew chief, John Cornwell. They all jumped into action taking advantage of the extra time provided by a delay brought by heavy rains and a muddy track. While the American Flat Track team and the Peoria Motorcycle Club worked to get the track into shape, Hayden, Frankie Lee, JD and John swapped out the fork springs, handlebars, and clutch to make sure it was set-up for the unique demands of the TT.
