Multiple drivers went down during the first five laps including David Millsaps while running third.  Roczen had just passed Millsaps and had 15 laps to chase down Ryan Dungey for first.

Dungey was on a mission and added four seconds on Roczen before the race ended.  Trey Canard rounded out the podium – which looked identical to the points race.
