250 OVERALL RACE RESULTS
Justin Cooper once again was first across the line with teammate Jeremy Martin in second. By the halfway point in the first lap, the two were already side by side battling. Jeremy would make the pass on Justin Cooper and this would allow Jett Lawrence to catch up and make passing attempts, becoming successful a turn later. However, Jett left the door wide open allowing Justin to make the pass. Pierce Brown would give another attempt at the motos but would crash again. One notable rider was Preston Kilroy who sat in sixth place after spending a whole week at Loretta’s.
Jett made the pass for second place and Justin Cooper would also lose another place by Rj Hampshire. Jett was on a charge as he caught up to Jeremy Martin. The two raced down a hill right next to each other but Jett would brake late and take the position away.
With 10 minutes left, the track resembled trenches more than it did a motocross track. Jett Lawrence would go on to win the race and the overall, making it a Team HRC weekend.

250 MOTO 1 RACE RESULTS
Justin Cooper grabbed the holeshot with the rest of the 250 class on his rear fender. Jett Lawrence raced in second closing the gap on Justin Cooper while Jeremy Martin charged in third. Pierce Brown went down in the same spot Aaron Plessinger went down in the moto earlier. Halfway through the race, Rj Hampshire made the pass on Max Vohland but for the majority of the race, the positions did not change much in the top 10.
Justin Cooper would eventually win the race with a healthy lead.
