Kawasaki Motors announced today the news that Eli Tomac has inked a multi-year contract extension to ride for the Monster Energy Kawasaki team.

Tomac is on a hot streak in the Monster Energy AMA Supercross series and is taking the title fight to reigning Supercross champion Ryan Dungey.

At the weekend in Seattle, the Colorado native topped the SX championship standings, drawing level with Dungey in points and is looking like the man that can take the title back to Kawasaki, who last held the championship in 2014 before Ryan Villopoto called it a day and jetted off to Europe to try his hand at the World Motocross Championship.


“I’m very grateful for the opportunity to stay with Monster Energy Kawasaki,” said Tomac in a press release. “The team has put a lot of faith in me over the last year, which has given me the confidence I need to win. We have put in a lot of work and it is good to see it paying dividends.”

In 2016, Tomac captured one win and five podium finishes on the way to a fourth in the Supercross standings. Then in the US outdoors he earned a pair of overall victories and 10 podium results in a strong runner-up effort.

Tomac then polished off the 2016 season with two impressive MXGP wins and the Monster Energy Cup Championship.

Tomac is in his second full term on the KX450F and has grown in confidence as the Supercross rounds have clicked off. Eight race wins including a five-race winning streak has blown race fans away.

“Eli Tomac is an exceptional rider and athlete, and has successfully carried on the tradition of dominance with his KX450F,” said Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. President Yoshi Tamura. “Eli epitomises Kawasaki’s commitment to winning and we are very excited to ensure he’ll be part of the Monster Energy Kawasaki team for years to come!”
