Some of the best racing was in the 250 class in Detroit. A class full of youth and high levels of competitiveness. Adam Cianciarulo was able to have another solid performance Saturday night aboard his Factory Pro Circuit Kawasaki.

We have been keeping a close eye on TLD KTM rider Jordon Smith. He has shown spikes of speed through the entire 250 East series. It was no surprise to see him finally knock out a win in Detroit.

A bit of an Instagram storm came over the internet as video of Craig and Martin getting into a bit of a scuffle during practice. Craig was fined and openly apologized on his Insta account before the night show took place. Alex Martin suffered injuries from the crash that would keep him on the side lines in Detroit.

A killer shot of the PC race team boys battling in the main event. Mitch Payton and the rest of Pro Circuit have got to be smiling with the amount of talent they have in both east and west this year.

Zach Osborne didn’t have the evening he was looking for as the fight for a championship continues in the east. The points within the top 4 are close enough to take it all the way to Vegas. Joey Savatgy will now have the red plate next weekend.

Jason Anderson is fast enough to run with the top 3 pack but needs to get out to a better start to make it a little easier on himself. Jason has shown a ton of speed in qualifying and racing all season long. If he can crack a good start you may see the #21 on the top of the box before the season ends.

Things were looking grim for Mr. Musquin just a couple weeks ago. The clouds have passed and there’s nothing but light shining on the french man now. He has been on fire after his return to racing and shown he can hang with the likes of Ryan Dungey and Eli Tomac.

Jordon Smith trains at Millsaps Training Facility in Cairo, Georgia with other riders including Justin Barcia, Anthony Rodriguez, Sean Cantrell, Pierce Brown and more. Some one is going to have some bragging rights come practice Monday morning. Congratulations to Smith on his main event win in Detroit.

Eli Tomac is 4 in a row now. The points are close and he’s nipping on the back of Ryan Dungey’s heels. Will Ryan Dungey be able to answer back to Eli or will Tomac continue the streak into the final few rounds of AMA Supercross before they head outdoors?
