Gagne and his crew discussed the situation between motos, and with the MotoAmerica Superstock championship still to be locked up with one round/two races remaining, it was decided that he would forego the second moto and make sure he was as healthy as possible for the final MotoAmerica races at New Jersey Motorsports Park. Nonetheless, Gagne's performance was exemplary and the culmination of a dream that was realized through the efforts of all involved. "When I asked Danny if I could do this, he didn't even think twice. He got a hold of Yamaha who built this awesome bike," exclaimed a happy Gagne afterward. "Keith McCarthy at Yamaha really got behind this project and was even here this weekend to support us. All the support I got from Yamaha throughout the testing with the crew and support was really great. I really can't thank everyone enough. Red Bull, Bell Powersports, Alpinestars, Spy Optics and my entire crew; Scotty, DA, Danny Walker, Carder, and my dad who all put everything they had into helping make this happen."
