The course for the big bore classes was a rough and tough motocross layout that saw riders banging bars as the fought for position. Each class ran in a two heat format with each heats results going towards their overall results.

In the Open Motorcycle class #31 Tim Wenden aboard his Rocky Mountain Precast supported Honda 450 pulled to an early lead in both heat one and two and was a locomotive as he easily took the heat win. Taking second was #42 JR Cepeda aboard the Cycles Plus Kawasaki 250. Cepeda kept it close up front but was never able to match the speed of Wenden. Taking third was #3 Jacob Einloth aboard his Yamaha 250 with #98 Marshal Vawter Jr. in fourth on a Yamaha and #19 Zachary Chang taking fifth aboard a Honda. Marshal Vawter jr. remains the current points leader heading into this Sundays round 5 event.
