The late Legendary Kentucky Kid, Nicky Hayden will be honored in his hometown of Owensboro, Kentucky on June 8th, 2018, forever memorialized with the unveiling of a sculpture in his tribute.

Rendered in bronze, Hayden’s likeness will hold a real American flag and unveiled at 5.30pm on the front lawn of the Owensboro Convention Center. During the unveiling of the memorial statue, Owensboro MayorTom Watson will read a proclamation that will declare June 9th (6/9) as Nicky Hayden Day.
