With the gate dropping on the opening Prestige race, the action quickly heated up. WALKER, GOMEZ and HAAKER were all in close contention with each rider sharing the lead at least once. Mistakes dropped HAAKER back to an eventual third as WALKER and GOMEZ went at it for the win. GOMEZ attacked at every opportunity but WALKER — yet to win a heat race this season — was not going to let this one slip away. Hanging it out just that little bit more, he hung on to claim his first win of the 2017 series with GOMEZ second.
