The second Pro class moto Natalie and Hetrick were both in the top five
after the first lap. After the race leader went off the track, Hetrick moved
into second behind Natalie. One lap later, Hetrick posted the fastest lap of
the race and took over the lead as Natalie dropped to third. However, during
lap six, Hetrick fell to third due to a mechanical issue and that allowed
Natalie to regain second place. Natalie chose to ride smart and remain in
second place, knowing he had the overall wrapped up. His 1-2 moto scores were
good for race overall and his second consecutive Pro class victory. He’s now
just 13 points out of first place with four rounds remaining on the season.
been feeling too hot the past few days and I'm not going to lie, there were
times out there when I felt like giving up,” said Natalie. “The biggest thing
that kept me going was hearing the fans cheering as we went by. That was
amazing and couldn't have made it through without them."
Hetrick battled the rest of the race to remain in the top five. His
machine suffered from a damaged ignition coil connector wire, which resulted in
a loss of power. However, his two moto finishes were good for fifth place
overall on the weekend and maintained his current third-place position in the
Pro class point standings.
Can-Am X-Team racer Cole Henry earned third
place overall in the Pro-Am Unlimited class, while his younger brother Chase

posted class wins during the weekend were Travis Spader (Open A, 4-Stroke A,
Junior 25+), Merrill Crose (Vet 30+) and C.J. Dollarhide (Open B).
