In the first Moto, Alisa Nix got the holeshot and picked-up the Girlyz Clothing Holeshot Award. Patterson took over the lead from Nix mid way through the first lap. The battle for second was between Nix and Tarah Gieger. Gieger made the pass on lap 4 and gave chase to Patterson, but Patterson was well in the lead and took the checkers. Leah Cantrell rode a strong race on her Suzuki for 4th and Girlyz/Yamaha rider Sarah Whitmore finished 5th after coming back from a run-in with another rider in lap 2, where she had dropped back to 14th place.
