i think this sums up the type of day it was in texas...
450 moto 1
Christian Craig with the holeshot and the early lead Weimer reed and Millsaps is right there as well along with Pourcel are all upfront. Craig is out front and is looking calm and collected. He looks damn good on a 450. Pourcel is in second and looks like a different rider compared to last week. I will say that pourcel’s bike doesn’t look to be on par as far as handling goes compared to the other front runner’s. at the halfway mark and Craig is still leading this thing. With pourcel reed and dungey are right behind. Well now pourcel is sitting down and cruising both dungey and reed went by and hes going backwards fast. With twelve minutes to go Reed gets by Craig who is still riding great. 3 minutes plus two laps to go and windhams bike is letting loose smoking and ruining his chance at the top five run he had going. Reed takes a convincing moto win over dungey. RV2 came from outside of the top 15 all the way back to third on a tough Texan day. Millsaps ended up with fourth and Craig was fifth.

250 moto 1
Barcia takes the holeshot followed by Musquin and Baggett. Halfway through the first lap Barcia tucks the front end and takes Musquin down with him. Musquin walked away grasping his wrist/hand. I hope this isn’t the last we see of him this summer. 5 minutes in and Baggett is upfront with Wilson, Izzi, Rattray, Cunningham, Swanepoel, Sipes, Vincent, Seely, Tomac, Lemoine, and Durham are your top twelve. Baggett falls and hands the lead over to Wilson and falls back to fourteenth. At the halfway mark its still Wilson out front with Rattray in second and Texas native Cunningham in third. Swanepoel is in fourth Izzi is in fifth and looks to be fading. Tomac is sixth Lemoine Seventh and Baggett eighth. Lance Vincent geico Honda replacement rider is running inside the top ten with ninth. Wilson takes the win Rattray takes second. A great ride for Cunningham in third and Swanepoel for fourth. Then it was Tomac, Izzi, Baggett, Lemoine, Barcia And Davalos was the top ten from moto 1.
450 Moto 2
Metcalfe takes the holeshot with his team mate Dungey right next to him both REED and dungey make quick work of Metcalfe and are out front. Dietrich is upfront early and ready for a long moto. Ten minutes in to the second moto, and its Dungey up front with Reed running second after tipping over and giving up some time to Dungey. Millsaps is running third with Metcalfe and Villopoto right behind. With ten minutes plus two left and the top ten is stagnant with everyone putting in solid laps. With two laps to go Dungey is out of the moto with a mechanical DNF handing the race win and the overall to Reed. Millsaps had a absolute great ride with second. Dietrich Races to third his best finish ever. RV2 was fourth Short fifth. (6)weimer (7)Craig (8)windham (9)Byrne (10)wey.

not starting this moto is Musquin he actually compound fractured his thumb in the crash with Barcia and is out. (bambam) Barcia takes the holeshot again with Wilson and izzi in second and third. Cunningham running fourth with a good start to the second moto. Eight minutes in and Wilson goes for the pass on Barcia tags his rear wheel and goes down. Now Barcia has a huge lead and Wilson is having a hell of a time getting the bike started and finally gets back going in eighth. This drama puts Cunningham in second. Halfway mark and its Barcia upfront with Cunningham in second followed by Rattray, Izzi, Tomac, Wilson, Seely, Tickle, Davalos, And Anderson. 3 laps to go and Rattray has caught and passed bambam. Tyla Rattray takes the win and the overall here at texas with a showing of how tough he really is. Barcia takes second Wilson in third.
