Blake Baggett (#57) had a great start in the second moto, but his lead was erased after he went over the bars and got up in 39th place.
Ryan Dungey: "It was another good, solid weekend. We got off to really good starts on my RM-Z today and I was able to get second in both motos. I lost some time in the beginning of the first moto, but I was able to make that up and get up there and almost get the win. I got another good start in the second moto and got up into second and battled for the number one position for the rest of the moto but just couldn't make the pass. It was tough."
Tyla Rattray: "I know that championships are often won with consistency and that has been my main goal from the start. It was great to get a win for my wife and my daughter on father’s day weekend. Each week, I’m just going out, trying my best, and I know I can finish strong. We’ll see how next week goes in the altitude.”
Kawasaki's Dean Wilson (#15) landed an excellent start in the first race.

Kawasaki's Tyla Rattray has yet to finish off the podium and currently leads the 250 championship by four points.

Broc Tickle: "It was a pretty good day overall with the podium in the first moto. I’m definitely getting my confidence back and know I can ride at the front. I wasn’t feeling that great all week so I took a few days off from riding and it seemed to do me a lot of good. I am excited to get back where I know I should be.”
Jake Weimer: "Each weekend I’m feeling better and better. This weekend wasn’t how I wanted to finish, but it is a tough track and I need to work on a few things for next week at Thunder Valley.”
