Overall, it was a really cool experience and it’s nice to get on the podium but I still have a lot to work on to get close to winning.”
Husqvarna Motorcylces-supported rider, Dalton Shirey captured a top-10 finish in the Pro class. Shirey started off just inside the top-15 and climbed his way up to ninth around the midway point. From there, he remained steady to secure tenth place in the Pro class.
