At the start of the main event, Larsen grabbed a good jump off the line and came around the inside of the turn well inside the top ten. As they entered the sand straight, Blake Baggett got cross-rutted and cut into Larsen's line costing the KTM rider a few positions. Larsen managed to stay on course and sat in 9th place. By the end of the first lap, Larsen passed two riders to move into 7th place. He continued to move forward on the next lap passing Hunter Hewitt. On the third lap he capitalized on Malcolm Stewart's crash and on the fourth lap moved around the downed bike of Lance Vincent. Now sitting in 4th position, Larsen put his focus on riding consistent to finish the race and earn his season best finish.
