As the main event approach the riders where forced to wear sweatshirts versus facing extreme hot temperatures like almost every round this season but this cooler weather it helped create great track conditions on the fast banked oval section of the track. The track featured a banked high speed oval section and a split lane technical infield section that allowed some great passing and racing throughout the days events. As the light turned green it was the #92 Michael Houghton riding the Hoosier / Pippard Racing / Elka, Earnhardt Racing’s Honda TRX450R that was out front thru the first corner to obtain the JM-Pro Hydro Pro Hole shot award.

Houghton said,” With the track being as technical as it was I knew a holeshot was key to the race and we did just that and was able to lead up until lap 10 until Brad applied the pressure and took the lead which dropped me back to second. My conditioning felt great thanks to The Program and helped me stay at the second place on the box.”

Riley was then able to move to the top spot where he was able to stay and get a nice comfortable lead on the second half of the main event as Michael Houghton and Andrew Evanyke battled for the other two spots on the box. The Houser / Rath / Hoosier’s Andrew Evanyke was also able to put together a nice start as he has really stepped up this season and has found his place on the box several times this year. Andrew who stayed right on Houghton’s grab bar the second half of the race settled into the final spot on the podium to finish third as the riders crossed the finish line.
