As this photo sequence shows, Dominguez was thrown over the highside, but he was unhurt in the crash.Dominguez was the first of three riders to fall in turn seven. Following Dominguez, Rockwall Honda’s Lloyd Worrell and Frankie Gillim fell. Monster Energy Attack Kawasaki’s Leandro Mercado fell one turn earlier.Following the spate of crashes, the race was red-flagged and only re-started once the rain stopped and the track was mostly dry.Mercado went on to win the 14-lap race by 2.893 secs. over Team Zyvax’s Joshua Day (Yam) and LTD Racing’s Joey Pascarella.
