The 250 Pro Main was another impressive showing by our series leader, Kyle Peters. He finished the race the same way he started and that was in first place. Zachary Butkiewicz shot out the gate with his best start of the series into second place, but was unable to hang on for too long. The battle for the second and third spots on the podium was amongst many, including Teasdale, Park and Winter. Alessi, who started the race in seventh place, got on the gas and honed in on his craft as he worked his way into the second spot during the second to last lap of the race. It would ultimately be Park who rounded out the final podium spot.

In a repeat of Friday night’s 450 Pro Main, Alessi would start the race in the front of the pack, but Peter’s was able to take the lead back over a bit earlier this time, passing Alessi during the fourth lap. Peters and Alessi rode solid and the top two spots went unchallenged the remainder of the race. With the battle for third taking prominence for the rest of the race. Park held the third spot throughout the race but with constant pressure from the likes of Hicks and Winters behind him. He staved them off to finish third on the night.
