Reed won the US$ 1,500 Progressive Holeshot Award with Yamaha’s Josh Hill and Honda’s Davi Millsaps following closely in second and third respectively. Hill crashed on the opening lap and allowed Millsaps to move into second place.
Millsaps went down on the second lap and allowed Honda’s Kevin Windham to move into second place. Windham crashed on lap seven and gave the number-two position back to Millsaps. On lap 15 Windham re-passed Millsaps for second place.
"I think this year we have been saying that each race gets tougher and tougher," said Reed. "I did not want to crash in the main like I have in the last few races. The track had a lot of ruts and you had to be smart. We had a great week off, and I flew home to Australia."
