In the 250 East Coast class, Nathan Thrasher and Hunter Lawrence engaged in a close battle that came down to the wire. Thrasher took an early lead and led comfortably for much of the race, but Lawrence fought his way back and made a last-corner pass to take the win in a split-second photo finish.
In the 450 class, Eli Tomac struggled with the sandy, whoop packed Tampa Bay track, while Chase Sexton looked to run away with the race. Sexton had the best qualifying times and got a good start, taking an early lead. However, Cooper Webb started near the front and made quick work of the other riders, staying hard on Sexton for most of the race and even taking the lead at one point. With just a few laps remaining, Sexton lost control and wiped out in the whoops, allowing Webb to take the lead and hold on for the win.
