STAR TAKES 1ST, 3RD & 4TH AT HIGH POINT
The return of Dylan Ferrandis meant that Monster Energy/Yamalube/Star/Yamaha Racing had another opportunity to put one of their bikes up front. Ferrandis had an exceptionally strong first race back from injury, with an eighth in the first moto and third in the second – to give him fourth overall. The rookie Justin Cooper took both moto holeshots. He went three-four, to finish third overall. Plessinger backed up his Glen Helen results by taking both moto wins and reclaimed the championship lead.
