Monster Energy SuperCross: Tomac Wins Third In A Row

In this weeks Monster Energy SuperCross, Eli Tomac shrinks the lead while Zach Osborne able to retain points lead.

250 Class:

As per usual Joey Savatgy and Zach Osborne jumped out front with Savatgy grabbing the holeshot, and his first of the year. Osborne was not having any of it as he put massive pressure on Savatgy. He sized up Savatgy lap after lap. It was in the same turn, the one after the whoops. Osborne tried at least three times, each time making contact (if you ain’t rubbin you ain’t racing). He was finally able to make the pass stick with some more contact at around the halfway mark of the race. Savatgy was able to stick with Osborne but Osborne was able to hold him off for the victory to retain the points lead.

“I felt like half the track Joey was way better than me, and on the other half I had a little advantage. We were tit for tat,” said Osborne. “Even after I passed [Joey] he was right there the whole time. It was a great race. I wasn’t able to hit [all the obstacles] in the fastest way, so I had to bide my time [before making the pass].”

There was a slight change to this race as Blake Baggett took the holeshot with Eli Tomac and Ryan Dungey close behind. This was a much better start for Dungey and the one he needed. Next Tomac made quick work of Baggett and Dungey followed soon after. Now the race for first was on. The only for problem was teammate and training partner Marvin Musquin was giving Dungey trouble. As the two teammates battled it allowed Tomac was able to gain a bigger lead. After holding off Musquin for almost the whole race, Musquin finally made the pass on Dungey and he would finish third. Tomac with his third straight victory is now only 12 points behind Dungey in the standings. Las Vegas is going to be fun, as this is where the championship will take place.

“This [season] is everything you could ever dream of, other than winning the championship,” said Tomac. “Right now we’re winning races, so it’s pretty cool. I don’t know what to say, we’re rolling right now. This is good for us. We’re doing what we need to do, but we’ve got to keep doing it.”
