AMA Pro Pro Singles
Michigan's Stephen Vanderkuur (Parkinson Brothers Racing / Performance Cycle & Dyno) nailed the hole shot in the 16-lap AMA Pro Pro Singles main over last year's winner Gerit Callies (Fun Mart Cycles) and Weirbach Racing's Ryan Wells. The Michigan cushion specialist looked to have the wide red groove dialed in only to have the red lights flash on at the end of the third lap. Danny Koelsch (Hump Racing) and Jamison Minor (Rochester Motorsports) tangled in turn two with only Koelsch making the restart. 

The race complexion changed completely on the restart as Callies pushed his KTM under Vanderkuur's Honda and into the lead he would not relinquish. "Restarts will kill you but my team put together a great bike and really gave me a great chance to win," Callies said. "I can't thank my team enough." 

Fast qualifier, Adam Bushman (Midwest CNC / Powerbar Honda) took full advantage of the restart to climb into second and closed to within four tenths of a second of the leader, but that is where his charge finished. 

Wells finished third over Highs Dairy Stores Jason Isennock and Vanderkuur. Jake Shoemaker (Montgomeryville Cycle / Bob Weirbach), Eric Stump (Markbilt Race Bikes / Eyeball), Wyatt Maguire (Kirkland Racing), Jake Quick (Markertech) and Shayna Texter (DFW Honda) rounded out the top 10. 

Callies now leads the Pro Singles points chase by 10 over Wells with Isennock another 10 back.
