450 MOTO 1 RACE RESULTS
The first 450 moto took off and a big pileup ensued in the first turn. Chase Sexton went down and Aaron Plessinger grabbed the holeshot. The top five were insanely sketchy as the riders rode incredibly close and on the verge of crashing. Cooper Webb ran in second until getting passed by Ken Roczen and Adam Cianciarulo. The riders were quick to hit Larocco’s Leap on the first lap and the crowd roared. Cooper Webb began to fall through the pack letting Tomac and Ferrandis make the pass.
At 20 minutes remaining, third through fifth began to duke it out as Ferrandis, Tomac, and Cianciarulo had a three-way battle. Ken Roczen made that pass on Plessinger for the lead and Aaron somehow lost his vizor. Ferrandis made his way around Tomac and started knocking on Adam Ciancirulo’s door and four turns later, sat in third. With 13 minutes left, Eli Tomac also made his way around Adam Cianciarulo and Christian Craig chased in sixth place.
Aaron Plessinger began to close the gap on Ken Roczen at 12 minutes and Dylan Ferrandis wasn’t far behind. While the top three battled, Eli Tomac crept into the picture and Christian Craig made his around Cianciarulo. Plessinger and Ferrandis went back and forth with less than six minutes remaining. Lap traffic started to play a factor in the race as Ferrandis got past Plessinger and Ken Roczen would continue to lead the race with a 2 second gap. With a minute remaining, Ferrandis made the pass on Roczen. Dean Wilson went down hard on the table just before Larocco’s Leap. Ferrandis would win the race after putting on an insane ride. Because of the two leaders jumping while Dean Wilson was on the ground and a red flag was waved, both would be docked points, Dylan Ferrandis 1 and Ken Roczen 2.
