In the 450 LCQ it was Carlen Gardner and Austin Politelli who were neck and neck for the holeshot. Politelli got out front and rode a solid race.

450 OVERALL QUALIFYING RESULTS

The track is holding up nicely so far. There are a few ruts forming in some of the corners and on a few of the jumps. Dean Wilson was the fastest in the second qualifying session, but his time wasn’t quick enough to beat Ken Roczen’s 47.386 from the first qualifying session. After the session Dean mentioned in a Race Day Live interview that the sand section adds another level of difficultly when you’re trying to put a fast lap in. It’s very hard to be consistent in the sand.

The top 18 from the overall fastest qualifying times during the day will advance straight to the main event. There will then be an LCQ that add four more riders for a total of 22 racers in the main event. During the night show, there won’t be any heat races or LCQ’s but each class will have three main events. The 250SX class will compete in three 10-minute main events, while the 450SX class will compete in three 12-minute main events. An Olympic-style scoring method will be used to determine an overall winner in each class from all three main events where the lowest combined score at the end will be awarded the overall win.
