The Monster Energy/Yamalube/Star/Yamaha Racing team was on fire at the second round of the series in Houston. Aaron Plessinger dominated the main and took his first win of the season, even after a tenth-place start. Mitchell Oldenburg battled for the lead throughout the first heat and ended up taking second. In the main he got caught in a start pile up. His consistent speed lap after lap allowed him to finish in sixth. The team’s rookie, Justin Cooper, qualified eighth. However, he was unable to make the main due to a crash in qualifying.
