Fastest qualifier Justin Cooper got the best of a hectic start in 250SX West Cost Main as Monster Energy Kawasaki's Austin Forkner, Australian Jett Lawernce, Cameron Mcadoo, Alex Martin and Start Yamaha Racings Dylan Ferrandis all battled hard for leading positions in the opening lap. Aussie Luke Clout was midfield in tenth as his compatriot Hunter Lawrence, who qualified through the LCQ after crashing in his heat race, was at the tail of the field after another small crash as lap one concluded.
With the first five minutes down Forkner was setting fastest laps out front while Cooper and Mcadoo battled over the podium spots. There was some close racing between Jett Lawrence, Ferrandis and Martin and Michael Mosiman for fourth place. Ferrandis soon moved up to the back wheel of Cooper and played the patients game for a few laps before the Championship leader got by and into third. Limiting risk Ferrandis then cautiously got by Mcadoo to move into second place and set out after Forkner, who was four seconds up the track. From an Aussie perspective, Clout had dropped to thirteenth while Hunter Lawrence had moved up to fifteenth.
