Ty Masterpool grabbed the holeshot on his Star Racing Yamaha and he actually took his hand off the handlebars to cheer as he crossed the holeshot line. It was incredible! Masterpool raced the 2019 AMA Nationals, skipped Supercross and then was injured before the Nationals began. Now, he is back from injury for the first time this weekend and he’s back strong. Darian Sanayei is also back from injury, he dislocated his shoulder at the Outdoor season opener and was off the bike for the last three weeks, but now he’s back racing and he was second on the start. Dylan Ferrandis was inside the top ten on the start, but he crashed immediately after passing his championship rival Jeremy Martin and dropped back to the 25th place range on the opening lap. Ty Masterpool held onto the lead for the first 20-minutes of the Moto, but Jeremy Martin was able to make his move on the young rider with just under 10-minutes to go. Rj Hampshire was fourth, but he made a very close pass on Jett Lawrence to take over third with 7-minutes left. Dylan Ferrandis was only able to make it to eighth position with 5-minutes left in the race. With three-laps to go Rj Hampshire passed Ty Masterpool for second place and Jett Lawrence was pressuring him for the podium spot, but Ty Masterpool is one of the only riders jumping Larocco’s leap which is making up a lot of time for him. Martin went on to win with Hampshire, Lawrence and McAdoo behind. Dylan Ferrandis made his way to 7th and Darian Sanayei held on to finish 10th.
