Dungey was able to close in on his teammate in several places, but the French rookie would pull back away. This continued until the final lap when Musquin approached Team Yoshimura Suzuki's James Stewart to put him a lap down. After one of the whoop sections Stewart forced Musquin to change his line into a corner, allowing Dungey to gain the momentum to get alongside both riders. Musquin then bobbled and lost control of his motorcycle, allowing Dungey to make the pass. Musquin then went off the track but stayed upright, losing no additional positions.
