In moto one for the Star boys final race, Swanepoel started off in a 7th but within a lap had moved up to 6th. Running the speed of the leaders, Swanepoel went to work and through the halfway mark he sat in 5th. At this point he showed strength by finding his lines and breaking away; as he went on to take the 5th position at the checkers. Also in moto one, the rest of the Star squad all came out pretty well with Cunningham 6th, Sipes 17th, Audette 18th, and Peters was 27th.
In moto two, it was Cunningham and Peters who acquired good starts and continued on riding outstandingly through most of the race. Early on Cunningham paced himself in 3rd until the midway point when he dropped back to 5th; however Peters holding a top ten position crashed out and cut his great race short. Meanwhile, Swanepoel raced up to near his teammate, holding down 7th and he was applying the pressure to move forward. In return, a hard fought day for the South African would result in a solid 6th and just behind in 7th was Cunningham. Fortunately after terrible starts, Sipes and Audette kept it together and mounted a charge to a better spot. In doing so, Audette salvaged a 19th and Sipes a 20th place finish.
