Rain arrived before the first 250MX moto, so riders had to adapt to a completely different track. Cooper, who once again topped the timesheets in qualifying, got off to a good start in second. He tried to close the gap on the leader but was passed before the start of the third lap. A lap later, he lost the rear before the finish line, rejoining in fifth. He kept battling and advanced to fourth but ultimately had to settle for fifth. In the second moto, The New Yorker got another great start, and while he was just edged out of the holeshot by Nichols, he quickly made his move to the front. Cooper then threw down some fast laps and rode away from the competition to take a dominant victory in Moto 2, ending the day third overall.
Nichols got a good start inside the top five in the first moto. Sitting in fourth, he was able to advance to third after his teammate’s tipover on Lap 3. From there, he kept putting in some consistent laps to maintain his position and then advanced to the runner-up spot after the leader withdrew from the race, scoring his first moto podium of the season. In Moto 2, Nichols got an even better start and grabbed the holeshot. After being passed by Cooper, he found himself under more pressure as riders were fighting for position on the opening laps and was shuffled back to fifth. He closed back in on the rider ahead but ultimately had to settle for a top-five finish, earning his best result so far this season with fourth overall.
Frye also got a good start in the first moto, but unfortunately was collected by another rider after the start and went down. His crew quickly went to work to get his bike back on track and the 20-year-old rejoined in last place. He kept pushing and was able to advance to 29th by the end of the moto. Frye then made the best out of a less-than-ideal gate pick and was 15th after the first lap. The Maryland rider kept pushing and crossed the line 12th to score 17th overall.
