Red Bull KTM Factory team rookie Dean Ferris was placed in the first 250SX heat at the start of the night show where he pulled a decent jump from the gate and came around the first corner inside the top five. He was able to hang on to 5th place for the six lap heat to take a transfer spot to the main event.
In the main event, Ferris got a good jump off the line on his KTM 250 SX-F but was pushed way back in the first corner and came out 12th as the riders crossed the finish line. Ferris moved as high up as 9th place throughout the race but made a couple mistakes that caused him to drop back at the end. When the checkered flag flew he crossed the line in 11th place, just one spot shy of a top ten result.
