Jimmy Nelson riding the GPS, Cannon Falls Honda turned-in two very impressive rides. Nelson, coming off his Canadian MX2 West Motocross Championship is quickly adapting to the fast pace of arenacross taking wins in both the 250 and 450 classes. Former Arenacross National Champion and current point leader Darcy Lange riding the Babbitt¿s Kawasaki finished 2nd in the 250 class, while having to settle for 6th in the 450 class. Riley Kurosky on his Fox, Dunlop Honda had one of his best rides, finishing a close 3rd to Lange in the 250 main. Young gun, 15 yr old sensation Tyler Bowers on the MDK Speed Equipment Honda closed-in on Nelson towards the end of the 450 main taking a close second. Another great ride came from Colt Humphrey riding the Fiber Wise Pasta, Sano Yamaha leading the main event for more than ½ the race then settled in for the final podium position.

Putting the fans on their feet was young Gared Steinke in the CRF150R shootout. Steinke jumped to an early lead¿ then had the crowd cheering as he cleared the BooKoo Catapult every lap to take the win over Anthony Romero and Garza Cooper.

The ¿little-big-show¿ was the 65 7-11 with Chris Alldredge riding the Champion Cycles KTM showing the fans the talent of arenacross starts at a young age. Alldredge took the win over Fowler (KTM) and Tanner Berry (KTM).

Two Brothers Racing put the bike under Brad Ripple to take the win in the MotoVert Pro Pit Bike class over Ryan Beat and TJ Russell. The ¿little bikes¿ with a ¿big bark¿ is a new addition to the BooKoo Arenacross Series with both kids and adults impressed with the performance of the bikes on the challenging arenacross track.
