Chisholm has continued to show impressive speed and improvement on the bike since he joined the team last month. In qualifying, he wasn’t able to get in a clean lap but managed to earn the seventh-best time heading into the evening. It all came together in the heat race as Chisholm grabbed the holeshot and avoided the carnage behind him. He put in solid laps but had a mishap in a rhythm section with a few laps to go and fell back to second. He never stopped pushing and was able to come back and take his first-ever heat race win.
In the main event, Chisholm got another good start but was pinched off on the inside and fell back to sixth. He was passed by a few riders in the initial laps of the race and continued to battle for position, eventually finishing fifth.
