Monster Energy Kawasaki rider Adam Cianciarulo took on the familiar Orlando supercross track as weather conditions prevented the series from changing the layout during the week. Cianciarulo was sixth fastest in qualification and assigned to the first 450SX heat race of the night, Cianciarulo found himself in second place behind the current 450SX championship points leader Ken Roczen from start to finish and earned the third gate pick heading into the main event.
When the gate dropped for the main event, the No. 9 KX450 of Cianciarulo launched out to a first place start where he would lead the first 10 laps of the 25 lap race. As the main event progressed, the local Florida-native rider Cianciarulo engaged in a battle for first position where he ultimately relinquished the position but determined to make a pass back for the lead, Cianciarulo began studying where his opponent was faster on the track. Unfortunately, his night would come to a halt after a mis-timed jump entering the whoops sent the sophomore 450SX rider over the handlebars and ultimately ended his night of racing.
