450 POINT STANDINGS AFTER ROUND 6 – RACE RESULTS
In the first moto, Ken Roczen who sat second in the points would be sucked under the field of 450s after crashing with teammate Chase Sexton in the first turn during the start. Justin Barcia would end up winning the race while Dylan Ferrandis would finish in second. Then in the second moto, it was a flip-flop as Dylan Ferrandis would crash twice while Ken Roczen would win the race. However, Dylan’s crashes in the second moto didn’t phase him as he ran back up to fifth place and gained a sizeable chunk of points on his competitors.

Then in the second moto, we witnessed an enormous crash that involved half of the top 10 as riders were scattered everywhere on the other side of a jump. Riders like Pierce Brown, Rj Hampshire, Jett Lawrence, and more were involved in the crash while the top three raced their own race. Jeremy Martin would win again with Michael Mosiman taking the second overall.

However, his impressive comeback wouldn’t be enough as Justin Cooper gained the points lead in the championship.
