Carmichael’s teammate, Sebastien Tortelli took second overall, with two runner-up places, and Ezra Lusk finished third overall. Carmichael now leads the championship by 87 points from Honda four-stroke rider Tim Ferry.
In the 125cc races, James Stewart extended his lead in the championship over rival Chad Reed. Stewart took the overall win, from the Blimpie Suzuki riders Branden Jesseman and Danny Smith.
