SALT LAKE CITY SUPERCROSS 450 HEAT RACE 2 RESULTS
Ken Roczen grabbed the holeshot in the second 450 Heat race with Adam Cianciarulo second and Justin Brayton third.

This track is going to be very challenging for all of the riders. Jason Anderson passed his teammate Dean Wilson in the whoop section to inherit fifth place in the Heat with just over a minute to go.
