Moto #1 – Notes:
Big holeshot in the high altitude. Tommy shot out to an early lead in Moto 1 and was holding off Short and Weimer in the early stages until Stewart, and later Dungey, made their way to the front. During the moto a rock flew up and hit Tommy’s left hand, breaking his middle clutch finger. He only was able to complete 11 laps for 33 place and scored no points.

Overall – Notes:
Tommy had a great start on Moto 1 with the holeshot, but was sidelined by the hand injury. He scored no points for round 3 and drops to 13th place in the overall standings. Tommy tweeted later in the day that his middle left finger had a clean break, but his attitude was positive to come back stronger after having such a perfect holeshot. Will we see handgaurds on his bike next time . . . ?
