250 Moto 1
After experiencing a delay due to inclement weather, the start of the first 250 moto saw Justin Barcia take the holeshot and jump out to an early lead. He would stay there largely unchallenged for the entire moto. Barcia experienced a little pressure from Ken Roczen roughly halfway through the moto, but was able to open the gap back up. Roczen started reeling Barcia in during the closing stages of the moto, but slid out in a turn, giving Barcia all the room he needed to take the moto win.
Blake Baggett was forced to put on a charge after a small crash in the first half of the moto, and ended up finishing in third just behind Roczen. Eli Tomac went down early in the moto as well and put on a charge of his own from quite a ways back that would see him end up in fourth place. Marvin Musquin rounded out the top five.
