After Stewart went down in the first moto, Michael Byrne took over the lead and gapped the rest of the field. With Dungey buried in the pack and Broc Tickle a ways back, Byrne looked to be on his way to a moto win. Sadly, it ended when the likable Aussie stabbed his foot upon landing and broke his leg. The win would have helped the BTO Sports/JGR/Suzuki racer rebound after an already difficult year that began with a broken neck. Get well soon, Byrner.
With both early leaders out, the first 450 moto became Broc Tickle’s to win. Tickle led a chuck of the moto before Ryan Dungey closed in and stole the lead in the back portion of the track. The two were this close for a number of laps.
The title chase in the 250 class tightened, after Blake Baggett and Justin Barcia finished off of the podium and their closest three competitors earned valuable points. With only four motos left, you should be glued to the 250 class.
Big James Stewart pulled double-duty watching over both James and Malcolm at ‘dilla.
See you at Steel City…
