Davi Millsaps’ points lead is now up to 14. That’s pretty darn good. He also won his heat race. No reason to even bring up this, “Is he for real?” stuff anymore because it’s obvious that he is
Stewart vs. Millsaps in the main. And note the rain. And the rhyme.
Reed and Andrew Short had a good duel for fifth, Reed came out on top. As for Short's team deal, he said he hopes to know more about his long-term plans by next weekend.
Stewart was fast and looked solid early, but he definitely ran out of steam around the halfway mark, and wasn’t as aggressive. James told us after the race that he wasn’t tired, he was just trying to make sure he kept it on two wheels and get a solid finish after a bad few weeks.
What a night for KTM. They swept the 250 and 450 main events for the first time ever. They had two 450 riders in the top ten in points for the first time ever (Dungey and Matt Goerke). And, the KTM Jr. SX Challenge returned for the first time in years, and they totally swept it!
Jake Weimer took a handlebar to the stomach early in the race and had to pull off, he was being checked by the Asterisk medic team after the race.
Probably not the race Canard wanted, with some crashes. He took seventh but did hold off Villopoto down the stretch. With every point counting, you never know what this will mean in the end.
A few more crashes from Trey Canard, who also had a few last week. He dug deep to salvage seventh. Late in the race, Villopoto was closing in, and they both got around Broc Tickle to gain a spot, and then Canard kept Villopoto at bay through the finish.
Rough night for Zach Osborne, who was hoping to finally log a clean night after dealing with a nagging shoulder injury for a few weeks. Instead, he crashed in his heat and the main event in the same spot. The heat race crash knocked him into the LCQ, which he won, but the main event crash dropped him from fifth to 11th.
Cole Seely had similar troubles, he was battling near Tomac for a shot at the podium until a crash left him way back. He finished 12th and gave up second in points to Tomac.
