Monster Energy Star Racing Yamaha’s Eli Tomac grabbed yet another main event victory in Seattle, for round twelve of the championship series.
Monster Energy Yamaha Star Racing’s Eli Tomac scored his fifth-straight victory in dominant fashion, leading from start to finish last night at the Lumen Field in Seattle, Washington.
The Colorado rider heads into the short break with a healthy 54-point lead in the Monster Energy AMA Supercross 450SX Championship with five rounds remaining.
Tomac topped the timesheets early but ultimately qualified third and took the runner-up finish in his heat race. In the main event, the series points leader got off to a flying start to grab the holeshot.
He then put in some flying laps to build a comfortable gap up front and ultimately took the checkered flag by an 8.6-second margin. In addition to expanding his points lead, Tomac’s seventh win of the season puts him in a tie for fourth on the all-time win list with 44 victories in the premier class.
“It was a perfect main event and another great weekend in Seattle. I got the holeshot and put in a big sprint early in the race. The track was really good for the first half and then really tough in the second half of the race.”
“Once Justin (Barcia) made the mistake, I had a pretty nice lead so I was just able to maintain it and try and get through the track. It was just another unbelievable weekend for us and the team. We’ve got some great momentum and love what we have going on!”
