Musquin:  “Qualifying first meant a lot in the race today. I was so pumped to grab the holeshot in the first moto! It was a long moto, when you feel like it all the time it feels like forever but it was super important to win that one because everyone was right there. I did not get the same start in the second moto but I worked my way through to second and it was good for the overall. It was tough, but we stayed consistent and came away with the overall. “

Webb, the sixth-place qualifier, got off to a top-five start in Moto 1 and he just set himself off the podium battle early on. He was dropped back to sixth. He was dropped back to sixth. With a severely bent clutch lever, Webb was unable to use his clutch for the remainder of the moto but he persevered and climbed his way back to a fourth-place finish. In Moto 2, he’s on his way to the hole-shot and early lead. He continued to battle for a top-three for a majority of the race, swapping positions along the way. With a strong finish, Webbitter secured fourth in the moto and fourth overall for the day, where he sits sixth overall in the championship standings. 

Webb:  “Southwick was a step in the right direction for me. The day went well and it’s the best I’ve ever ridden so far.Heading to RedBud, I really enjoy racing there and hopefully I can get on the podium. “
