AmPro Yamaha's Jordan Ashburn sat on the thirty-eighth row eagerly awaiting his turn to attack the course. When the NEPG official's hand dropped, Jordan was off and the race was on. The first section was a solid mixture of deep sand, tight trees, and muddy ruts. Ashburn tried his best to match the pace of the leaders, who started almost thirty minutes ahead of him, but the course had quickly deteriorated and line selection was difficult. The second section went much better for Jordan as he found himself right on pace with the top five riders. Unfortunately, a couple small mistakes in the third and fourth sections would force Ashburn to play catch up for the rest of the afternoon. By the end of the sixth section the young AmPro rider was just too far off the leader's pace to pull together a top five spot. He finished the race in seventh place.
