In the 450SX class, we've already got another new winner on the list, and it's still not one of the "Big Four" of former SX Champions. Justin Barcia was on the gas all day, and took off with the holeshot in the main event and simply checked out, leading to his first career 450SX victory in just his second-ever start.

Ryan Villopoto crashed on lap two but worked his way from 8th to 3rd, and was pressing Trey Canard for 2nd on the last lap. Then Canard fell and RV grabbed the spot. Canard lost three positions, as Davi Millsaps, who ran second early, and Chad Reed, got past. The third-place finish for Millsaps allows him to keep the points lead for the second-straight week. Reed and Canard rounded out the top five.

In the 250 SX class, Martin Davalos started the night with a huge, huge crash in his heat race, but bounced back to win the LCQ and then grab the early lead in the main event despite the terrible gate pick. But Eli Tomac was on the move, starting about top five and then working up to second. He then carved into Davalos' lead, took it and checked out. Ken Roczen then managed to catch Davalos with two laps to go, they collided at one point, and then on the final lap Roczen was able to make the move and steal second. Davalos held on for third.
