Rutledge got off to a tough start in moto 1 and had to pass riders to work her way up to 2nd place where she finished the race. A hole-shot in moto 2 was welcomed. Rutledge was passed by 2 riders but fought back to take another 2nd place finish behind fellow Kawasaki rider Livia Lancelot.

Rutledge's 2-2 results gave her the overall win and moved her 3 points closer to the championship lead which she gave up last round due to a moto disqualification, her only blemish to an outstanding series so far.

Meghan Rutledge say's, "I had a rough start to the round with some minor technical issues but pushed through for 2 consistent moto results. I'm so pleased to take the overall for the weekend and put myself a few points closer to achieving my dream. I'm stoked."
