The Yoshimura Suzuki rider went on to win the first ever Military Appreciation Race, ending a 15-race winless drought.

Ken Roczen was one of a few riders to wear Fox Racing’s white camo gear. The brightly colored accents made it a fan favorite and an entire set is available at the auction featuring a signed jersey to go along with pants, a helmet, and pair of boots. The Red Bull KTM rider grabbed the final spot on the podium, coming in third in San Diego.
Dungey wore the same gear as his Red Bull KTM teammate en route to a fourth-place finish. Pants, a helmet, and a pair of boots also accompany his signed jersey.

Although his night ended in heartbreak, Reed’s green camo Shift gear was hugely popular. The Discount Tire Racing/TwoTwo Motorsports rider donated his jersey and pants to the auction following a 12th-place finish.
