In Hangtown it was Eli Tomac finishing 5th and appearing to be a bit shell-shocked after having won the West SX2 title. Blake Baggett, who had been target fixated on Hangtown about 3 races into the SX2 East series, simply dominated the opening round even though Justin Barcia and Ken Roczen spent most of their time in Hangtown leading laps.
