Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Tomac won the opening premier class heat in commanding fashion over Cooper Webb (Red Bull KTM), with Dean Wilson (Rockstar Energy Husqvarna) third.

Next, it was Roczen (Team Honda HRC) who overcome early leader Adam Cianciarulo (Monster Energy Kawasaki) in heat two, the pair stretching a sizeable advantage over Jason Anderson (Rockstar Energy Husqvarna).

The first 250SX West saw Forkner (Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki) take the checkered flag, joined in the top three by Mitchell Oldenburg (Penrite Honda Racing) and Justin Cooper (Monster Energy Star Yamaha).

It was then Craig who led a Geico Honda 1-2 over teammate Jett Lawrence in the second of the 250SX heats, as number one plate-holder Dylan Ferrandis (Monster Energy Star Yamaha) was third.

JGRMX Yoshimura Suzuki’s Alex Martin crashed out of contention, while Luke Clout (Penrite Honda Racing) will also be LCQ-bound after a heavy fall off the dragon-back saw him cross the line in 12th.
