450 MOTO 2 RACE RESULTS

Chase Sexton was the first across the holeshot line with his competitor Eli Tomac back around 8th. A couple of turns later, Eli was already up in fifth behind Dungey. Ken Roczen would take the lead away from his teammate. As the two completed a lap and raced across the start straight, Ken realized who was right on his tail and chose not to run into Chase. Eli also moved up into third and the top 3 were all within two seconds of each other. With 23 minutes left, Eli Tomac made the pass on Ken Roczen.

With six minutes left, Tomac activated the afterburners and caught back up to Chase Sexton. However, every single small mistake makes huge differences as Eli made a bobble with four minutes remaining, adding seconds to the gap.

Chase would go on to win the overall and the championship is coming down to one of the closest championship in all of Pro Motocross.

450 MOTO 1 RACE RESULTS

Christian Craig grabbed the holeshot and Jason Anderson who has been doing well recently was found on the ground with Runkles. Pretty soon after the start, Ken Roczen was in the lead with Craig in second and McElrath in third. After a lap and a half, both Ryan Dungey and Eli Tomac made the pass on Shane for fourth and fifth. After three laps, Tomac had made his way up to second and Sexton had moved up to fifth behind Dungey. By the 22 mark, Chase had already gotten in the mix between Ryan Dungey and Christian Craig. A lap later, Chase had moved up into third place and the gap between the battle for the lead Chase closed remarkably fast.

With 18 minutes remaining, Eli made the pass on Ken for the lead but Chase Sexton wasn’t far behind, passing for second at the halfway point. With 10 minutes left, Chase bobbled up a hill accidentally cutting the course. With 5 minutes left, Eli made the slightest mistake and Chase made the pass. Three laps remained in the race and Eli was on a charge to reclaim his lead, trading places with Chase. After regaining the lead, Eli found some sort of black magic, throwing down his fastest lap of the race and creating a four second gap out of thin air. Eli would win and in case you missed it, Aaron Plessinger made it into third.
