With Oldenburg notching a third-place result in heat race one and Cooper winning heat race two, the results portended good things to come in the main event.
Cooper got off to a great start in the main and was in second place out of the gate. Although he lost one position in the early going, he held tenaciously to third place and maintained it all the way to the checkered flag.
Meanwhile, Oldenburg was clearly on a mission as he moved from eighth to seventh in the opening laps, and then he passed rider after rider as the clock counted down. He made it all the way up to fourth and behind his teammate Cooper, which is where he stayed until he crossed the finish line.
The Monster Energy Star Yamaha Racing team’s 250SX East riders will race again next Saturday, March 16, at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana.
