250 Main Event #1
In the first main event of the night, it was Cameron McAdoo who grabbed the holeshot, barely beating Adam Cianciarulo. McAdoo went a little too wide into the turn and ran into the tough blocks, ejecting him on the front of his bike. Cianciarulo took the lead, followed by Jimmy Decotis, Michael Mosiman, and RJ Hampshire. Mosiman was quickly shuffled back a few positions after getting passed by Hampshire, Sean Cantrell, & Jacobs Hayes.
Up ahead, Cianciarulo had opened up a good lead on the first lap, but Decotis soon started cutting into the lead and pressure for the position. Decotis had a problem jumping over the wall jump, which allowed Hampshire to close in and apply pressure for second. The mistake allowed Cianciarulo to pull away from the two other riders. Halfway through the race, Decotis and Hampshire then swapped positions a couple of times through a rhythm lane and a corner. Hampshire would eventually make the pass stick and move into second.
While the lead pack battled, Ferrandis was able to make a pass on both Hayes and Mosiman, to move from sixth to fourth. The move allowed Ferrandis to catch Decotis a few laps later and make the pass for third. With under a minute to go, Ferrandis closed in on Hampshire for second. The Frenchman made the pass just before the white flag came out, securing the position. Decotis was also passed with about a lap to go by a couple of riders, as he looked to struggle on the final few laps of the race. Cianciarulo would go on to win the race, ahead of Ferrandis, Hampshire, Mosiman, and Nichols.

Wilson was able to make a pass through the whoops on Musquin and take second, while Webb was able to make a pass on Musquin and Eli Tomac in the next corner, to move back into third. Musquin was able to get back by his teammate in the following corner, to lock up third place for the time being. The two KTM teammates continued their battle during the opening laps.

The move allowed Tomac to close in and pressure the points leader for third. Musquin was able to close in on Seely for fifth with about four minutes to go in the race, making the pass in a corner.

While Musquin moved into fourth, Webb set his sights on Wilson in second and was able to pass the Husqvarna rider for the spot. Musquin quickly closed on Wilson for third but while trying to make the pass on the outside in the whoops before the finish line, Wilson and Musquin touched, sending Musquin over the berm and onto the concrete floor. Musquin would remount in sixth with just a couple of laps to go.
Roczen would go on to win the race, ahead of Webb, Wilson, Seely, and Musquin. Musquin made a pass on Tomac at the line, where it looked like Tomac let off the throttle just before going over the finish, costing him the position.
250 Main Event #2
In the second 250 race, Adam Cianciarulo crossed the holeshot line first after getting to the inside of Jacob Hayes and Cameron McAdoo and bumping the two riders off the track. Cianciarulo got a little loose from the contact and went off the track himself right after, giving the lead to RJ Hampshire, who was followed by Chris Blose and Dylan Ferrandis. Cianciarulo had to ride along the side of the track through the first rhythm section and reentered in the first turn in about 10th. Blose was able to take the lead in the first corner and Ferrandis was able to make the pass on Hampshire as well in the following corner.
On the next lap while riding in fifth place, Michael Mosiman went down in a corner and found himself toward the back of the pack. A few moments later, Ferrandis had gotten right on the rear wheel of Blose to challenge for the lead. Ferrandis got a good drive through the whoops and was able to square up Blose in the last turn before the finish line. With the two side-by-side coming out of the turn, Blose was pushed wide and into the tough blocks, putting him down in the dirt and giving Ferrandis the lead.
With just over eight minutes remaining, Cianciarulo went down over the over-under after contacting Sean Cantrell in the air and had a hard time getting back to his bike because the riders couldn’t see him down on the back side of the obstacle. Cianciarulo finally got back to his bike and couldn’t get it started immediately – when he did, he had to pull into the mechanic’s area momentarily to get his clutch pushed back into place. By the time Cianciarulo got back on the track, he was the last of the riders on the lead lap.
At the front of the pack, Ferrandis had opened up almost a five-second lead with about four minutes remaining while Colt Nichols was closing in on Garrett Marchbanks to battle for third place. Nichols soon made the pass after getting an inside line into a corner. However, Marchbanks was able to regroup and make a last-lap pass to retake the position.
Ferrandis went on to take the win in the second main event, followed by RJ Hampshire, Garrett Marchbanks, Colt Nichols, and Jimmy Decotis – Cianciarulo would finish in 10th.
