It was the most technical track of the seven-round run at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City. Barcia and Plessinger had decent results in the Heat race, finishing fourth and seventh respectively. In the Main Event, it was the start that hurt them both again. The challenging 180-degree-first turn wreaked havoc all day long, and in the 450 Main Event, Barcia was one of the casualties. He was caught up in a first-turn crash and rejoined the race in last place, two laps down. Instead of pulling in, the veteran put the laps in and made the best out of a bad situation to finish 20th. Barcia ended the season fifth in the standings.
Although he got a worse start, Plessinger missed the melee and was in 16th. He steadily worked his way through the pack to 11th, but ultimately it was the best result on the day for the sophomore supercross rider in the dry, slick conditions.
The Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing Team now shifts its focus to the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship which kicks off on July 18 for the Ironman National in Crawfordsville, Indiana.
