‰ÛÏMy night was pretty good. I had a good battle with Adam [Cianciarulo] in the heat race, which was fun and good to come away with the win," Roczen said. "That put me in a good position for the main event and to be able to pick a decent gate. Tonight though, pretty much every gate on the start was super rough and there were a lot of holes, so it was hard to decide which one to pick. But I hooked up really good and got my first holeshot of the year, so that was nice.
"We‰Ûªve been putting in a lot of work on my starts, so it‰Ûªs been paying off. For me to be able to win tonight, I had to be a lot better in the whoops. I was just struggling there the entire race, so that didn‰Ûªt help me out; I feel like I lost all my time there. I was trying to skim them, then went to jumping them, which was horrible too; I lost a lot of ground so went back to skimming and just was all over the place and that was where Eli [Tomac] made up a lot of time and closed in on me.
"We definitely have some work to do but don't want to get too crazy. We just need to keep doing what we‰Ûªre doing. We‰Ûªre in a good spot right now and we just have to keep it up. First last weekend and second this weekend, plus the red plate is really great. I‰Ûªm really happy.‰Û
