On the last lap Jason caught and passed Ken Roczen for 2nd place. Ken had an air fork malfunction and was in survival mode trying to make it to the end. Here Jason looks over his shoulder seeing if Ken would catch him before the finish line jump.Photography by Rob Koy

Jason almost threw it away in this front rhythm section while battling with Trey Canard. Many riders complained about how sketchy this section was for racing and wondered why they would build a supercross section on a motocross track.Photography by Rob Koy

As the track got dry and rough during the 2nd moto Jason uses the far right side of the Mt. St. Helen downhill next to the fans trying to find a smoother line. The braking bumps got very sketchy coming down this hill.Photography by Rob Koy
