The People's Champ took a hard fall in the main event due to some questionable riding from Mike Alessi. Windham had already been shaken up in the heat race when he crashed into a downed James Stewart, so the second crash could not be brushed off. Windham exited to track on his own power, but he was clearly in pain.
The sand section looked as if it may be one of the equalizing obstacles on the track before racing started, but it proved to be much less an issue than some of the other sections of the track, including the giant whoops that claimed many riders throughout the day.
JWR's Josh Grant returned to racing this weekend, and although he hasn't had much time back on the bike, he still managed to score 11th place in the 450 main event. A few more solid, injury-free rounds, and we may see JG back to the speed he's capable of.
