Phillip Nicoletti, who was already scheduled to race Unadilla joined Justin Brayton for the event. Brayton took the holeshot in moto one with Nicoletti just behind him. The teammates led the field before Brayton settled into sixth with Nicoletti ninth in the early laps. After 30 minutes and two laps, Brayton took the checkers in sixth and Nicoletti was seventh. Brayton again put his Yamaha at the front in moto two with Nicoletti third leaving the first turn. As the early order played out Brayton was eighth and Nicoletti sixth. Brayton finished the moto in seventh, and Nicoletti was ninth. Brayton’s six – seven scores equated to fifth overall, and Nicoletti’s seven – nine finishes earned him eighth for the day.
