Monster Energy Cup | Cup Class

Race One

Excitement filled the air as the gate dropped for the first race of the night as the 22 riders shot down the start straight, and it would be Rockstar Energy Husqvarna's Jason Anderson with the holeshot, just a quarter of a bike length ahead of American Honda's Trey Canard. The Honda rider quickly took control of the lead; however, it would be short-lived as the slippery track conditions claimed him halfway into the race. James Stewart hit the deck in the same corner as Canard, and both riders got back going somewhere around mid-pack.

Ken Roczen took control immediately after Canard's crash, and was followed by Ryan Dungey, Jason Anderson, and Davi Millsaps. The young German kept the Red Bull KTM rider at bay, while everyone tried to determine when would be the best time to take the Joker Lane.

After the 10-lap race, Jason Anderson crossed the finish line first, but was penalized five positions for not completing a pass through the Joker Lane, giving the win to Roczen.

Race Two

Anderson would grab the holeshot once again in moto two, putting him in contention for a brand new Toyota Tundra. The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna rider was quickly passed by AutoTrader.com/Toyota/Yamaha's Justin Barcia, putting him back into second. It didn't take long, though, for the Husqvarna rider to pass Barcia, and retake control of the race. A heated battle was going on not far behind, as Trey Canard, Davi Millsaps, Ryan Dungey, and Ken Roczen were all fighting to better their race position.

It didn't take long for Roczen to move through the pack of riders to put himself into second place. However, the RCH rider was quickly matched with Canard, who took over the second place position soon after.

Riders started to hit the Joker Lane as the race entered the halfway point, but the top three waited until the final two laps before making their way into the slower race line. This time around, though, Anderson made sure to make his way through, and when he came out, he was still in the lead and took the win.

Race Three

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna's Jason Anderson would go three-for-three on his starts, and take home the prized Toyota Tundra for his accomplishments. A mistake through the rhythm section soon after, though, dropped him back to second, with Ken Roczen taking control of the race. Anderson would go under attack once again by Ryan Dungey, and the Red Bull KTM rider would eventually move on by.

Roczen clicked off some fast laps for the rest of the 10-lap race, and extended his lead up to eight seconds before entering the Joker Lane. This gap gave the RCH/Soaring Eagle/Jimmy John's Suzuki rider a big enough buffer, allowing for comfortable run up to the finish to take the win.

Monster Energy Cup | SuperMini Class

Race One

Austin Black shot out front in the six-lap Supermini race, and held on to the lead for four laps before he started to get some pressure from Team Green's Lance Kobusch. After a quick battle, Kobusch took over the lead, but Black tried to keep the Kawasaki rider in sight. Once the checkered flag came out, it would be Kobusch with the win, followed by Black and Max Miller.

Race Two

This time around, it would be Team Green's Stilez Robertson who would claim the holeshot in the Supermini class. Robertson tried to run away for the win, but he slowly started to get reeled in by his Team Green teammate, Lance Kobusch.

Kobusch went to make the pass at the halfway mark, but the two riders nearly collided in the air, forcing Kobusch to drop back a couple of seconds. With one lap to go, Robertson lost control of his Kawasaki in a corner, sending him off the track, and giving the win to his teammate.

Monster Energy Cup | Amateur All Stars

Race One

A lot of attention was placed on Team Green's Austin Forkner coming into the race, and for good reason. The young rider had won the Monster Energy Cup twice in the Supermini class, and this year, he would be lining up in the Amateur All-Stars class. Forkner handled the pressure like an old veteran, and grabbed the holeshot just ahead of his teammate Zac Commans. Commans fought hard to keep the pace set by Forkner, but by the third lap, Forkner had opened up his gap to four seconds.

Forkner continued to dominate the six-lap race, while Commans encountered some problems when he was forced off the track by Josh Osby. The Orange Brigade KTM rider held onto the second place position for a lap, but was overcome by GEICO Honda's newest rider, Chase Sexton.

Forkner would take the moto win, while Sexton and Osby would complete the podium.

Race Two

Austin Forkner had his starts dialed in Sin City, as he rocketed out front on his Team Green Kawasaki. The Amateur All-Stars rookie wasted no time, and quickly started to extend his lead on Chase Sexton, Mitchell Harrison, and Josh Osby. Forkner proved to be the strongest rider of the night, as he encountered no pressure from his competition, and took an easy win inside the Sam Boyd Stadium.
