Andrea Dovizioso (No. 4 Ducati Team) kept up Ducati’s 100% Red Bull Ring win record, thanks to a stunning last corner pass on Marc Marquez (No. 93 Repsol Honda Team) as the two MotoGP stars put on a show at the myWorld Motorrad Grand Prix von Österreich. Marquez and Dovizioso were in a league of their own in the 28-lap event, and their battle featured several twists and turns before a forceful move down the inside of the Turn 10 right-hander decided it in Dovizioso's favor. The Italian's late lunge means the Red Bull Ring remains the only track on the MotoGP calendar where Marquez has yet to win.  Fabio Quartararo (No. 20 Petronas Yamaha SRT) completed the podium.

Ernie Francis Jr. (No. 98 Frameless Shower Doors Ford Mustang) managed to keep Chris Dyson (No. 20 Thetford/Norcold Ford Mustang) in his rearview mirror to capture his second victory of the season at the FirstEnergy Mid-Ohio 100 Trans Am. Francis Jr. started from the pole, looking to repeat his Mid-Ohio win of 2018, but Chris Dyson, winner of two straight TA class races would not allow Francis Jr. a moment of comfort on the 13-turn, 2.258-mile Mid-Ohio circuit. The duo fought hard throughout the race, with Francis Jr. able to post a three-second lead early, but Dyson came back mid-race with a succession of quick race laps as the pair separated from the rest of the field. Adam Andretti (No. 17 Engineered Components Co./Anchor Bold Chevrolet Corvette) finished third. (Thanks to Trans Am media.)

Twenty-year-old Austin Cindric (No. 22 Team Penske Ford) claimed his second NASCAR Xfinity Series victory in as many weeks, earning an impressive 3.78-second win over Christopher Bell (No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota) and AJ Allmendinger (No. 10 Chevrolet) on Saturday afternoon at Mid-Ohio. “It feels good, two in row and going for three at Bristol,” Cindric said after climbing out of his Ford Mustang. “I’ll probably go crazy if I win there. Should be a lot of fun. This is great momentum for our group.” Much of Cindric's race was spent negotiating restarts with Bell on his bumper or at his door – as well as fending off another road racing star in Jack Hawksworth (No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota), who actually won in class in an IMSA race at Mid-Ohio already this year and was making his series debut. Hawksworth started from the outside pole and challenged the front-runners for much of the race, eventually finishing 15th and leading five laps. He also won the second stage, which finished under caution – one of six yellow flags for 17 laps on the afternoon. ”I enjoyed it, it was a lot of fun,” Hawksworth said after the race. “I was having a lot of fun out there. I had a great time and would like to come back.” Up next for the series is the Bristol Motor Speedway and the Food City 300 on Friday night. (Thanks to NASCAR media.)
