Tyla Rattray, who has been injured during the first half of the season, returned to the scene at RedBud by earning an impressive fourth overall in the 450 class. Rattray will return this weekend at the Spring Creek National with his sights set on the podium. Fellow Pro Circuit riders Jake Weimer and Broc Tickle are currently third and fifth overall, respectively, in 450 point standings.
