Chad Reed may have gotten even with Ryan Dungey for some past slight, but his reputation was more tarnished than Dungey’s points lead.
Ryan Dungey was angry after the race, but after a short chat with Ian Harrison and Roger DeCoster he regained his composure.
Cole Seely has to be thinking about what went wrong with his starts.
Christian Craig has been mathematically eliminated from the 250 East crown.
Marvin Musquin’s third in St. Louis kept him one point shy of falling two full races behind (50 points) with only four races to go.
Malcolm Stewart’s bike has two wheels, but he can’t keep it upright often enough to score the poinst his speed should be getting him.

Justin Barcia needs to focus on going forward without retaliating against every rider who passes him before he will be able to settle into his true pace.
Adam Cianciarulo has been near the front a lot, but he can’t stay with Savatgy and Osboene for a whole moto.
Eli Tomac has a lot of reasons to smile. His eight wins so far have earned him over a million dollars in bonus so far in 2017.
Jake Weimer has become a full-time fill-in rider.
Broc Tickle had one really good night and got on the podium—he’s looking for that magic combination again.
