Will Ken Roczen be able to fend off Cooper for the red plate or will Cooper Webb dig deep, and take away the points lead? Or will we see one of the many other talented 450 class riders make a surprise and win tonight’s race?

450 MAIN EVENT RESULTS
The Main Event took off and Dean Wilson grabbed another holeshot. Cooper Webb took the lead away from Dean and the points leader is nowhere to be found. Back all the way in tenth sat Ken Roczen after getting a terrible gate choice, which resulted in zero traction after the gate dropped. Justin Barcia ran in second place with Chase Sexton in third. Malcolm Stewart ran into the side of Jason Anderson for a dirty pass but instant karma would strike, sending the 27 over the berm. Dylan Ferrandis crashed hard after being run high by Jason Anderson through a berm. In fourth sat Jason Anderson with Dean Wilson in fifth. Aaron Plessinger continued to ride well and made passing attempts on Dean, becoming successful a turn later. However, Dean Wilson put up a fight and made the pass back on Plessinger. Ken remained stuck behind Aaron and Dean as Joey Savatgy eventually caught up to the pack. Aaron took his position back from Dean and began to pull away from the Husqvarna rider. Ken moved up to sixth after passing Dean and started to pull away. Jason Anderson made the pass on Chase Sexton for third with seven minutes remaining.
