In the end, it was another podium sweep for the Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki crew, as Brett Metcalfe scored his second-straight podium.

In the Motocross class, Mike Alessi took the first moto win ahead of Grant Langston, but Langston's 2-1 was good for the overall win. Kevin Windham was also in the mix in both motos, and was particularly fired up in the second moto after he and Langston tangled in the first moto, which forced K-Dub off the track.
