Beaubier rode a flawless race. He grabbed the holeshot and then laid down some fast times to ride his Yamaha R1 off into the distance and cross the finish line with a comfortable five-second gap. The four-time Superbike Champion's 13th win of the season capped off another stellar weekend as he continued to break more track records, topped Superpole, and took two commanding victories. Beaubier heads into The Brickyard tripleheader in Indianapolis with a 103 point advantage over his teammate with 150 points available, moving him closer to clinching his fifth premier class title.
Gagne got off to a good start from the front row and quickly moved into third. He moved his way to second in the right-hander before the final corner and set after his teammate. Unfortunately, a technical issue on the second lap had him dropping back to fourth. He tried to maintain the position but found himself back in eighth a lap later. Not willing to throw in the towel, Gagne was able to fight his way back to fifth. Although not what he was hoping for, his efforts maintained his second-place position in the standings by a point over fellow Yamaha rider, Westby Racing’s Mathew Scholtz.
