250 Heat 1
After grabbing the holeshot, Cameron McAddo bobbled in the first rhythm to give the lead up to Colt Nichols, who quickly rode away from the pack. While riding in about fifth, Chris Blose went down in a right-hander, ending his shot at a direct transfer to the main. Meanwhile, Sean Cantrell, Jimmy Decotis, and Cameron McAdoo battled for second through fourth, eventually resulting in Decotis and McAdoo taking over second and third after Cantrell stalled his bike. Nichols went on to win the first heat race uncontested – he was followed by Decotis, McAdoo, Robbie Wageman, and Bradley Lionnet.
250 Heat 2
RJ Hampshire got the holeshot just ahead of both Adam Cianciarulo and Dylan Ferrandis. Cianciarulo was able to seal second place after Ferrandis bobbled and was forced to double rather than triple in the section after the finish line. Cianciarulo was then able to take over the lead on the next lap when Hampshire made the same mistake as Ferrandis through that rhythm section. Ferrandis put in a last-minute attempt at the pass for second but was unable to make it stick. Cianciarulo took the win, followed by Hampshire, Ferrandis, Michael Mosiman, and Justin Starling.
450 Heat 1
Justin Bogle was the first to cross the holeshot line, followed by Blake Baggett, Zach Osborne, and Marvin Musquin. It was a tight battle between these riders through the race, especially when Dean Wilson and Ken Roczen put their bikes up into the mix as well. The only passes to be made were Osborne on Baggett and Roczen on Musquin when each of them made a small bobble that caused them to lose time.
450 Heat 2
The last heat race holeshot went to Cole Seely, followed by Joey Savatgy, Cooper Webb, and Eli Tomac. Tomac and Webb battled back and forth, swapping positions a few times and making contact once or twice. Both riders eventually made the pass on Savatgy to move up a position but Tomac would not let Webb better him, despite Webb’s attempts. Seely went on to take the win, followed by Tomac, Webb, Savatgy, and Josh Grant.
The top four riders that earned a transfer spot to the main were Garrett Marchbanks, Chris Blose, Enzo Lopes, and Blaine Silveira.
The top four finishers in the 450 class were Alex Ray, Carlen Gardner, John Short, and Charles Lefrancois, all earning a spot in the main event.
250 Main Event
Michael Mosiman grabbed the holeshot in the main, just ahead of Adam Cianciarulo and Jimmy Decotis. There was a big crash on the first lap that claimed Garrett Marchbanks, who would not continue the race. Dylan Ferrandis started in about fifth place, with his teammate Colt Nichols just behind him. Mosiman held his own through the opening stages of the race and held off Cianciarulo’s attacks. Meanwhile, Ferrandis made a pass on Cameron McAdoo and looked ahead to start closing in on Decotis.
Cianciarulo appeared to have made the pass stick by the 10-minute mark, but Mosiman fought back in the next section to get-by-side again. However, the Kawasaki rider had the ideal line and was able to take over the lead at the same time that Ferrandis made the pass on Decotis. Soon after, Decotis lost two more positions to Colt Nichols and Cameron McAdoo.
Cianciarulo quickly opened up a gap of over two seconds but Ferrandis was putting down the fastest lap times and was pressuring Mosiman for second place by the eight-minute mark and finally made the pass almost three minutes later. By the time Ferrandis had gotten around Mosiman, he was seven seconds back from Cianciarulo.
Meanwhile, Decotis continued to drop positions, falling all the way back to seventh place behind the two Geico Honda teammates, McAdoo and RJ Hampshire.
Cianciarulo’s gap was too large for Ferrandis to overcome, allowing Cianciarulo to go on and take the main event win. Ferrandis would finish in second, followed by Colt Nichols, RJ Hampshire, and Michael Mosiman.

450 Main Event
It was Marvin Musquin who crossed the holeshot line first, followed by Joey Savatgy, Ryan Breece, and Justin Bogle. Bogle quickly moved into third while Cooper Webb and Eli Tomac were several positions back. Tomac wasted no time in getting past Breece and was soon on the rear wheel of Bogle. Tomac made the pass shortly after in the whoops section and following corner and was within a second of his teammate, Savatgy. Savatgy held off Tomac for a section but was soon passed after Tomac made an aggressive move in a corner to take Savatgy high and out of the line.
Meanwhile, Webb was still caught in traffic and found himself in fifth place, just ahead of Zach Osborne and Ken Roczen.
Tomac was clearly the fastest rider on the track as he cut Musquin’s three second lead down to within a second in just a lap and a half and made the pass for the lead with over fifteen minutes left on the clock.
At the same time, Webb was able to find his way past Bogle and he looked to close the gap up to Savatgy. Webb closed in on Savatgy soon after and the two battled back and forth for several laps, allowing Bogle to get within a second of the two riders.
During Webb and Savatgy’s battle, the red cross flag came out, forcing riders to roll the section. It was later announced that the downed rider was Dean Wilson, who was carted off the track by the Alpinestars Mobile Medical Team.
Webb was able to seal the pass with about 10 minutes left in the race, but Bogle and Roczen weren’t far behind him. After winning his heat race, Bogle was feeling good and made the pass on Savatgy soon after to put his KTM into fourth.
Over the next few minutes, Webb was putting down fast lap times and was closing the gap in on his teammate, Musquin, and was within about a second with over five minutes left on the race clock. Just a few minutes later, Webb was able to make the pass through the whoops to take over second place.
Tomac went on to take his hometown race, followed by Cooper Webb, Marvin Musquin, Justin Bogle, and Joey Savatgy.
