Colt Nichols crossed the line behind Ferrandis in third, making it another double podium for the Monster Energy Star Yamaha Racing squad and making him the only rider in the 250SX West Championship who has yet to miss a podium appearance this season. It was an important points haul to give him a three-point lead in the standings. Teammate Ferrandis sits not far behind, just five points back in fourth.
"The track was just really rutty and really demanding," Nichols explained. "The heart rate was really high, so that‰Ûªs what made it tough to do consistent laps. A solid podium though, can‰Ûªt ever complain about that, but of course always want more. Once you‰Ûªve won that‰Ûªs all you want to do, but I‰Ûªll take a third for tonight, that‰Ûªs all I had and move on to the next weekend.‰Û
