Andrew Short was on a tear during the first moto, finishing an impressive second place to Ryan Dungey. The second moto would not go as smoothly, as he and Kyle Chisholm tangled and hit the ground, tweaking Short's bike and ending his day. Short holds a four-point lead over Jake Weimer for third place in the final standings.
Thanks to a great start and uncontested win, Eli Tomac's Oakley goggles were still stacked with tearoffs at the end of the second moto. Tomac has become the dominant 250 rider in the second portion of the series, winning the last four motos, and is now 14-points shy of Blake Baggett in the championship chase.
Snowcross legend Tucker Hibbert lined up for his return to motocross at Steel City, taking 26-27 scores for 27th overall. The two-time FIM Snowcross World Champion and six-time X Games gold medalist has crossed over between the two sports for years, and has earned 12 top-15 finishes over the course of his AMA career.
2012 was considered a make-or-break year for Blake Wharton, as he joined a new team and worked to overcome injuries. Wharton has not folded under the pressure, as he scored a Supercross main event win and is ranked seventh overall in the National standings. With another year to go on his contract, things are looking brighter for the Texan.
