JEREMY MCGRATH: Made a few mistakes in his qualifier and in the main. But once he was in the lead he pulled away to win convincingly.



EZRA LUSK: Away from supercross for one year. A very strong showing. Looked good.



RICKY CARMICHAEL: He wanted to win, but rode smart to make the podium. It’s a long season. Expect Ricky to win some too.



MIKE LAROCCO: Steady. Consistent. Hard charging as always.



TRAVIS PASTRANA: Fan favorite. First time on the 250. Looked very impressive in his qualifier, coming from back in the pack to finish second behind Lusk in heat 1.



DAVID VUILLEMIN: One of those nights where things didn’t go as planned.



STEPHANE RONCADA: Also first time in the 250′s. Gained valuable experience for the series. Leader in the main early on.



KEVIN WINDHAM: Looked great in winning heat 2 over McGrath. Poor start in the final.



NICK WEY & NATHAN RAMSEY: Both made their first showing for Yamaha of Troy in the 250 class. Will switch to 125′s for the East events.



SEBASTIEN TORTELLI: Did not race, he injured his shoulder in daytime practice.
