Mikey got a 2nd row hole shot and held 4th for three laps but lost is in lap six in his heat and battled for a transfer position on missing it by a bike length.
He also battled with 4 riders for the 3rd position in his semi for every lap only getting it by a bike length at the checkered flag.

All of this gave us starting position in the Main Event Expert Race at 11:00 PM. We finished the 25 laps in 15th place with a 0:25.207 best lap. This puts us in 14th place in the overall points standing for the Grand National Championship, with 6 out of 16 rounds completed.
