250 Class:

Once again Jordon Smith nabbed the holeshot, while Dylan Ferrandis settled  behind him, however he went down after getting caught in a rut in turn two or three. This Allowed Alex Martin and Zach Osborne to follow. Osborne made quick work of Martin. And Unfortunately Smith Osborne was able to catch him and make the pass stick as he had the lead for the remainder if the race. Once Osborne took the lead Martin was able to make up ground on teammate Smith and the two continued to battle for the race. At one point the two collided and Martin knocked Smith off the track allowing Colt Nichols to take over third place.

450 Class:

Ryan Dungey Got out front first as he grabbed the holeshot. Behind Dungey was Blake Baggett and Mike Alessi. Eli Tomac and Marvin Musquin had to make his way through the pack after bad starts. Cole Seely was in fourth and was able to take over third when Alessi started to drop off the pace. Tomac took advantage and quickly made a pass on Seely to take over third. He then put his sight on Baggett. Tomac was able to get passed Baggett and put his sights on Dungey who at the time was 7 second ahead. Tomac charged hard and dropped Dungey’s lead to around 3 seconds. Dungey was saved by the white flag as he was just able to hold off the charging Tomac. If the race was 3 laps longer Tomac would probably have the pass.
