Into the first corner it was Jerry Lorenz #28 with the advantage over Fraser, and Nauditt. Austin Politelli laid it down!

The pack had to sweep out wider than normal around the first corner to miss Politelli’s bike.

IMG_8397 copy

Josh Clark #23 had no choice but to cut it in.

IMG_8398 copy

It’s never good when you run into someone on the start. Things got pretty tight at one point.

Looks like Clark just missed Politelli’s head!

While all the carnage was going on, Jerry Lorenz was putting the SX250 power down….

Topher is very humble post race no matter where he finishes. He’s happy to be out there racing for top positions!

IMG_8481 copy

Josh was pumped!

IMG_8681 copy

Picture perfect day for the spectators. Sand Del Lee probably has the best layout for viewing because about 90% of the track is in sight.

IMG_8690 copy

Konnor Long #719 taking his hot lap for moto 2.

IMG_8693 copy

And the moto 2 holeshot went to Clark! 3 Yamaha 2-strokes were close to getting it too.

IMG_8695 copy

Only a few riders went down this moto. That’s the #518 of Derek Ouimet, Brad Nauditt $16, and Tyler Villopoto #5.

IMG_8697 copy

Wentland was taking a pretty cool line through the chicane section. Unfortunately, it backfired on him and he was down pretty hard.

IMG_8687 copy

Davey Fraser #36 has the speed to run in the lead group! He was showing a lot of potential despite being sore from getting landed on at Gopher.

Davey will have the advantage as we move East.

IMG_8732 copy

Awesome ride for Muff! He took 2nd in the final moto and he was happy to be up there for his family, friends, and team.
