Stilez Robertson of Monster Energy/Yamaha Star Racing took the lead at the start of the fifth round of the championship and led for the first four laps. However, he encountered a cross rut in the whoops and crashed heavily, forcing him to retire from the main event and finish 22nd overall.

Monster Energy Supercross is off next week before returning April 7 in Glendale, and according to a team press release, Robertson is okay after the crash and is expected to race when the series resumes.
“It was a pretty eventful night here in Seattle,” said Robertson. “I didn’t feel like myself all day until the main event. I started to find myself in the beginning laps of the main, but just a simple mistake turned into a pretty good get-off. I’m glad to be okay and ready for some redemption in Phoenix.”
