The 250 Pro Main was a continuation of the Phoenix Racing Honda team’s domination on the day. Peters rode solid from beginning to end, winning his 15th straight main event in the 2021 series. The second place spot was a battle between Osby and Park, Park was able to hold off Osby the entire race, until the final lap where Osby narrowly passed Park to get second in the race. This was the first Phoenix Racing Honda Team sweep of the season. The beginning of the race saw Team Babbitt’s Kawasaki rider, Alessi, pull off the track before the end of the first lap with a wrist injury that will sideline him for the rest of the 2021 series.

Teasdale ultimately finished in third place, his first podium finish of the 2021 series.
