Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Zach Osborne began moto 1 in fifth place and worked his way up to the podium battle, but went down on lap 9 and dropped back to sixth. He remounted his FC 450 Rockstar Edition and was able to come back to fifth by the end of the race. In moto 2, Osborne got off to a second-place start, but fell back to fourth shortly after. As the laps wore on, he was able to move back into second place by the time the checkered flag flew, enabling him to round out the overall podium.
“We made some changes in the week after High Point and it really paid off today,” Osborne said. “I was able to ride much more in my comfort zone during the whole moto, which gave me more at the end. I had a pretty big get-off in the first moto and was only able to manage fifth, but in the second moto, I had a really good feeling and momentum, and I was able to really go out there and show what I can do.”
