Welcome to Save of the Day presented by MIPS where we will be highlighting close calls, salvage rides, or comeback performances from each week of the 2020 Lucas AMA Oil Pro Motocross Championship.
At Loretta Lynn's 2, Zach Osborne went for a wild ride just as he got to Adam Cianciarulo and attempted a pass for third in the second 450 class moto. Osborne was able to coral it together, complete the pass, and carry on towards victory the moto which helped him win his second straight overall.
"Yeah. That was a close one," said Osborne. "I apologized to him, but I don’t think he realized how close it was. I was basically riding his bike! I was going for the pass on the inside, but I got kind of tipped towards him on a rut. I was just like, oh, man. We’re both going for a ride and he doesn’t even know it yet. It was a close one. It wasn’t really whiskey throttle. Those ruts were so long. I was going for it. I was sending it. I got a little off balance and kind of side-swiped him, but we were both fine."
