250 OVERALL RACE RESULTS
Ryder DiFrancesco grabbed the holeshot in his first Pro National. However, his teammate Seth Hammaker would go flying off the track with a bent-up bike. Ty Masterpool would be on a redemption ride taking first place in front of a sea of factory riders on his practice bike.
The first moto winner, Jo Shimoda went down early with Rj Hampshire and Justin Cooper. The only two riders who remained to be consistent were Hunter Lawrence and Stilez Robertson as the two chased each other in second and third. Jett Lawrence had a rough start due to a tough gate pick after the first moto, but would be found in sixth place by 24 minutes. Ty made a mistake allowing Hunter Lawrence to make the pass for first place.
With 22 minutes left, Jett Lawrence had made his way up to fourth place and would eventually just barely squeeze past Ty for second place. Stilez Robertson took fourth place away from Ryder Difrancesco but while trying to catch up to Ty, would slide out in the same place Seth Hammaker went flying. The two Lawrence brothers nearly collided as the two wrapped around the start turn almost trading paint with Jett taking the lead. With five minutes left, Jo had made quite the comeback now sitting in fifth place. Levi Kitchen also entered the mix as he made the pass on Ty Masterpool for third place. Jo eventually got around Ty and was soon in Levi Kitchen’s rear view mirror. Jett would win the second moto but Jo would take the overall.

250 MOTO 1 RACE RESULTS
Hunter Lawrence was quick off the line with his brother chasing in second. Jo Shimoda joined the party and snuck into second as his teammate and new Pro rider, Ryder DiFrancesco, went down in the second turn. Jo went for a passing attempt only for Jett Lawrence to benefit off his mistake, passing for second. Jo rejoined the battle and pretty soon the top three were on each other’s rear fenders. At the 18 minute mark, Jett just barely slid by his brother Hunter for the lead. And in devastating fashion, Jett’s bike blew at the halfway minute mark, forcing him to walk back to the factory rig.
With four minutes left, Jo turned the heat on high making several passing attempts at first place. A minute later, Jo made the pass on Hunter for first. The rest of the field eventually fell of tremendously as on the final lap, Jo Shimoda had already gained a 15 second lead on second place’s Hunter Lawrence.
