The 250 East could not afford to lose two front runners in practice, but that is what happened to Austin Forker (shoulder) and R.J. Hampshire (wrist). Both were contenders for wins, but their early exit leaves Christian Craig, Colt Nichols, Jett Lawrence, Jo Shimoda and Michael Mosiman with less competition, but more urgency. Colt Nichols struck late in the main on Star Yamaha teammate Christian Craig to take the lead, but Craig fought back, only for Colt to pass him again. The end result? A tie in the 2021 AMA 250 East Supercross series between Colt and Christian. Jett Lawrence made a less than honorable pass on Michael Mosiman to get third for the night and third in the points chase. The 250 East series will have three rounds in Indianapolis next.
