The season has been one of learning and adjusting for Ferris, but he has also been eager to put his talent to the test. In the opening moto, he nearly grabbed the holeshot and was in the mix for over half of the race running in fourth. Near the end he fell back to sixth, but that still gave Ferris his best moto finish of the season. In Moto 2, it was more of an uphill battle as he pushed inside the top 10. Ferris would eventually make it up to ninth, giving him a 6-9 score for eighth overall.
Barcia continued to gain strength from his wrist injuries and was hopeful his strong fitness would come into play at the tiring altitude. He was running strong with his teammate in Moto 1, but unfortunately he was feeling poorly and finished 11th. Ready to charge back in Moto 2, he positioned himself in the top 10 where he would fight his way through slower traffic to finish sixth for ninth overall.
The Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing team will get a weekend break before heading to Round 4 on Saturday, June 15 at High Point Raceway in Mt. Morris, Pennsylvania.
