450 MAIN EVENT RESULTS
Justin Barcia grabbed the holeshot with Ken Roczen in second and Adam Cianciarulo in third. It looked like we might see Barcia style out front and get back to his winning form that we saw at Houston Supercross #1, but Ken Roczen wasn’t having it. Ken made a quick pass on Barcia right away and the two riders quickly pulled a gap on the rest of the pack. Eli Tomac was eighth early, but he moved up to fourth quickly after passing Martin Davalos, Vince Friese and Aaron Plessinger. The Tuesday night track is considerably different from Saturday’s track. Saturday was slower, softer and more rutted while the Tuesday track has a faster layout with less ruts and slicker conditions in the flat corners especially. 8-minutes into the race Tomac moved up to the rear end of his teammate Adam Cianciarulo while Ken Roczen held a 7-second lead on Barcia who was 3-seconds ahead of the Kawasaki riders. Eli Tomac then made a very aggressive pass on his teammate in the hairpin corner after the triple. With 6-minutes left, Eli Tomac was able to reel his way up to the back tire of Justin Barcia to pressure him for second. Towards the end of the race, after sitting in third for a majority of the race, Adam Cianciarulo was passed by Aaron Plessinger, Malcolm Stewart and Cooper Webb all in the matter of two laps. Cooper then passed his way through the pack to finish fourth while Justin Barcia held off Eli Tomac for second and Ken Roczen checked out for the win.

It was the factory KTM rider of Cooper Webb who got the holeshot with Ken Rcozen and Adam CIancairulo hot on his tail. Dylan Ferradis and Zach Osborne joined the front pack in the early laps. Ken and Cooper started going back and forth for the lead. Cooper went too far to the inside on a tight left-handed corner and got his footpeg caught on a tuff block dropping him into 6th putting Roczen into the lead. On the final lap, Malcolm Stewart made the pass on his teammate for third place. Roczen would end up winning his heat was ease.
