The rivalry between Leading Edge Kawasaki’s Matt Goerke and Bobby Kiniry of Rockstar Yamaha picked up immediately in qualifying with Kiniry outpacing the field on the extremely fast Castrol motocross track to take the top qualifying spot. Kiniry took full advantage of his starting position in the first moto, taking the hole shot and quickly establishing the lead with reigning national champion Colton Facciotti on the Red Bull KTM in second and Goerke in third. By the fourth lap Goerke had overtaken the number one plate holder and was desperately looking for a way around Kiniry. On lap 8, contact between the leaders following a triple by Goerke through the rhythm section sent Kiniry wide and into second place where he would finish the race. Despite the contact, both racer’s were happy with race and had no concerns.
Goerke scored his second moto victory of the day in the next moto as intermittent rains commenced making surfaces slick and rutted. With the muddy conditions, second place finisher Kiniry was forced to abandon his goggles part way through the race in an attempt to improve his visibility and ultimately conceded the lead to Goerke on the 14th of 17 laps. Tyler Medaglia on the GDR Honda claimed third place in the moto and fourth overall, with Colton Facciotti’s fourth place finish being good enough to secure third overall for the day.
Teddy Maier started the day with a win aboard his Leading Edge Kawasaki in the first moto of the MX2 class for his sixth consecutive victory. He was followed by second place finisher Jeremy Medaglia on the Red Bull KTM and Blackfoot Direct Yamaha rider Jared Allison in third place. In the second MX2 moto, Maier mistimed the start and got caught up in the gate. Working his way through the field from sixth position at the end of the first lap, Maier ultimately finished third, ending his impressive winning streak. Maier’s teammate, Kyle Beaton, who was very fast in qualifying despite coming off a big crash in Calgary, led until the thirteenth lap when Medaglia took the lead with one lap remaining. Medaglia's performance gave him first overall for the day with Maier and Beaton occupying the second and third overall on the podium.
Next up, after a well deserved three week break, the series moves east and resumes on July 14th at the Gopher Dunes track in Courtland, Ontario.
