In 250s, no surprise, the Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki boys battled hard again. Blake Baggett dominated the first moto after getting a good start and overcoming an early challenge from DNA Shred Stix Star Racing Yamaha’s Ryan Sipes to take the win. Tyla Rattray climbed up to second and Sipes teammate Kyle Cunningham took a solid third. Dean Wilson, leading the points coming into the race, got a bad start and had a tough moto coming through, even falling over while trying to pass GEICO Honda’s Justin Barcia for fourth. He settled for fifth, but then bounced back in a big way in moto two, snagging the early lead and riding strong. This time Baggett got the bad start and had to move forward to preserve the overall, while Rattray shadowed Wilson and stayed with him all the way to the end. In came down the last corner, with Rattray going for the pass but running out of room, and Wilson
Make no mistake, Dungey was the best of the 450 bunch on this day, as he lost some ground to Villopoto early in the first moto, but then closed in and attempted a pass. He tried to hit a berm on the outside, but the berm gave way and he went down, dropping him off of Villopoto’s back fender. Villopooto took the win with Trey Canard third. In moto two, Villopoto grabbed the start, but Canard crashed early, leading to a red flag situation, and Canard was transported to a local hospital complaining of pain in the same leg he broke a few months ago. Sad news there. Dungey controlled the start the second time around, ad Villopoto was all over him early. But Dungey began edging away, and pulled a gap that led to a moto win and the overall. Villopoto took second. Reed started third but admitted he didn’t quite have his normal push, and Metcalfe got by him to take third. Reed hung on with Muscle Milk Toyota’s Justin Brayton and Red Bull KTM’s Mike Alessi closing in right on him at the end, but settling for fifth and sixth.
