The 250 Pro Main kicked off with another holeshot from Alessi. However, Peters made quick work of things this go around and had regained the lead by the second lap. Peters would ride to the finish in the first place spot. Park and Alessi would go on to fight for second place for the next few laps, with Park finding a way to pass Alessi on the sixth lap. But Bitterman, who started the race in fifth place, was consistently moving up the ranks throughout the race and by the ninth lap he would move into second place, and maintain that position through the finish. Park was able to maintain his edge over Alessi to snag the third spot on the podium.
Alessi continued his holeshot dominance in the 450 Pro Main, but much like the previous race, Peters was able to slide by Alessi in the second lap to get back in first and finish on top of the podium. Park went down during lap two and fell back to seventh place, but rode hard throughout the race and worked all the way back up to finish fourth overall. The best battle of the main was between Bitterman and Alessi for the second spot on the podium, with Alessi in front for much of the race, but Bitterman was never far behind. On the second to last lap of the race, Bitterman edged out Alessi and held on to finish in second place, and Alessi took third.
The pro classes continue to possess a lot of talented racers, hungry for a top spot on the podium. And with each passing race, these guys find ways to improve their game and make moves to contend for a top spot.
