K Russell faced a mechanical issue in the exclusive Pro only "John Penton" section of the track and he couldn't get his bike started back. Duvall capitalized on K Russell's misfortune and continued pushing forward. working his way from outside the top ten, through the pack of riders, to be in third once K Russell was having difficulties. Baylor passed for second, and K Russell got his bike running shortly after.
With just a few miles left until the finish, Duvall carried his speed until the checkered flag where he finished two and a half minutes ahead of Baylor in second. However, a protest was filed after the race against Duvall and he was docked one position for cutting the track. This decision vaulted Baylor to the top of the charts where he took his first-ever overall victory. Duvall and K Russell filled the overall podium on the adjusted results.
"I haven't even broken into the top five all year, so this is an awesome feeling knowing this is where I should be," said Baylor.
"It's been a bad few weeks, nothing is going right," said K Russell. "I've blown a lot of points and it's a tough pill to swallow. I was making stupid mistakes today. I finally felt like I was riding really well on the last three laps, and then I ran into some mechanical problems on the last lap. I felt good, and I was riding good. It's not a lack of effort -Things just aren't coming together like I'm used to."
"We are going race by race, we aren't worried about the points championship," said Duvall. "I didn't feel like I was the fastest one out there, but I rode my own race. I really found out how good the KTM's and Husqvarna's are today. I dreaded the John Penton section all day, it just didn't really flow for me. I made a huge mistake the first lap when I tried to jump a breaking bump and flew off into the trees. I figured after that it would be a long day."
