Faith took the Rocky Mountain ATV/MC Head-to-Head Challenge victory, over Hayes.

The first 250AX main event started off with a first-turn pileup and the red flag coming out, forcing a full gate restart. Key riders in this pileup, such as Daniel Herrlein and Gavin Faith, did not line up again for the second start of main event number one.

The second start for the first main event saw Hayes grab the holeshot and lead all 15 laps for the first main-event victory.

The second 250AX main event was similar, with Team Babbitt’s Monster Energy Kawasaki rider Hayes leading all 15 laps to the checkered flag to take his second overall victory of 2018. TiLube/ Rockford Fosgate Honda’s Chris Blose finished with a pair of twos, right behind Hayes, for second overall. Gared Steinke went 3-3 to finish in third place overall.
