Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Henry Wiles scored the win at Springfield, Illinois State Fairgrounds during Round 13 of the Motorcycle-Superstore.com GNC Singles short track. The defending Singles champion took the victory ahead of Zanotti Racing's Jake Johnson by more than five seconds, with rookie J.D. Beach rounding out the top-three finishers aboard his Red Bull Honda.
 
"I wasn't really nervous about tonight, I knew I just had to do my job," said Wiles. "I had to take my time and get around Chad (Cose), but then it was a matter of concentrating on the track."
 
Taking the holeshot in the first race of the evening was Digger Helm/Lightshoe/Arlen Ness's Chad Cose, and the Honda rider led for the first lap until Wiles jumped into the lead, leaving Cose to battle for second with Latus Harley-Davidson/Moto Concepts' Joe Kopp and Bettencourt's Honda's Kenny Coolbeth.
 
Jake Johnson had a slow start but by Lap 7 he was up to seventh-place and quickly advancing. Cose, under pressure from Coolbeth, finally buckled and crashed out in Turn 2. Meanwhile, in his first Grand National appearance Beach finished third ahead of Kopp, who trailed back in fourth as Chris Carr made his way up to fifth.
 
Carr, who had been forced to use his back-up bike after the primary mount failed in the Dash for Cash event, made a comeback and finished fifth after starting from the fourth row. Wiles also nabbed the Dash for Cash contest, winning $1,000 and an additional five points.
