Ferris was placed in the first 250SX heat race where he earned a great start rounding the first corner in 3rd position, before holding on to a top nine main event qualifying position crossing the finish line in 8th position.
In the main, the KTM 250 SX-F pilot got a great jump and came out of the first corner in 7th overall. He made a few mistakes early on that cost him a few positions but remained strong throughout all laps. At the end of the fifteen lap main event he crossed the finish line in 14th position and still on the lead lap.
‰ÛÏTonight was a great learning experience." Ferris stated. "Luckily, I was able to get two decent starts.
"I am very new to Supercross racing so every week will continue to be a learning experience that I can improve upon. I am very grateful to the Red Bull KTM Factory Team for giving me this opportunity and am looking forward to working toward a top ten finish,‰Û
