Earning a good start out of the gate and challenging up front from the get-go, Millsaps had the misfortune of going down in the whoops on the opening lap but rallied back with an impressive come-from-behind effort. Relegated to 18th position, the Honda racer sliced through the pack to take the checkers in a hard-fought fifth place. Short was right behind his teammate in sixth position and rounding the final turn of the race when disaster struck; he stalled nearing the finish line. Scrambling at the base of the finish-line jump, Short dropped three spots but still took the checkers in ninth place. Up front, Windham put together his best effort of the year, scoring his first Supercross win in 2010 aboard his CRF450R-his last win coming on this same track in Seattle in 2008. Overcoming extremely difficult track conditions, the veteran racer shot to the lead on the opening lap and enjoyed a healthy gap by the time the checkers fell.
