Geico Honda's Chase Sexton grabbed his first 250SX class main event victory at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. In the main event, Sexton rounded the first corner in third. In the opening laps, he passed Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Austin Forkner, who was riding with a torn ACL in his left knee, but the Kawasaki rider put an aggressive pass on Sexton right before the finish line to reclaim the runner-up spot. The two riders then began to close in on race leader and Forkner's teammate Martin Davalos. Two and a half minutes into the race, Forkner landed hard on a flat landing and aggravated his knee. He rolled off the track in obvious pain, out of the race for a DNF and scoring just one championship point. A little over six minutes into the race, Sexton took the lead from Davalos and stayed composed on the challenging track to secure the win, and with it a nine-point lead in the championship chase with one round remaining.
