In typical fashion, Alessi earned another great start in the second moto this time taking the holeshot and the early lead. The second moto was remarkably different from the first moto as heavy rain fall during the intermission had made the course very sloppy and slick. Alessi pulled away from the pack early in the moto to pull a 15 second lead by the fifth lap. Unfortunately, late on lap five, Alessi suffered a crash. He lost over 20 seconds while recovering from the mistake and lost the lead to Chad Reed.
