Putting last week behind him, Seely knew his starts would be important. He got a good jump, but unfortunately went down on the opening lap, clocking in at 38th when he came around the first time. He didn’t let that stop his fire as he picked off riders every lap, eventually finishing an impressive 14th. The second moto, he grabbed a better start, going on to finish ninth for ninth overall.

“This weekend definitely went better than last, but that first moto wasn’t how I wanted to start the day,” said Seely. “I used a lot of energy getting through the pack and the second moto was pretty rough with lots of hard edges and breaking bumps to tackle. I’m really glad to get out of here healthy and we’ll see what we can do next weekend.”
