Supercross News
Tomac takes the red plate and an advantage into Salt Lake City


Posted: Thursday, 26th April, 2012 : 10:34 AM - - 3,878 Reads




GEICO Honda rider Eli Tomac might be a Colorado native, but Utah's Rice-Eccles Stadium seems a lot like home.

With its high altitude, thin air and proximity to his home base in Cortez, Colo., Tomac said he's going to have an advantage heading into this Saturday's Monster Energy AMA Lites West Supercross race.

"It's just like a home track for me, for sure," Tomac said. "It's only six hours away so I can drive there. I've been spending a lot of time in California this season but I've been back in Colorado this week so I can get readjusted to the elevation and be ready to race."

The Salt Lake City track is similar to Seattle – another track in Tomac's comfort zone – because the conditions can be unpredictable.

"You can have just about anything there," Tomac said. "It could rain, snow or be really nice; you just never know. It's going to be fun no matter what happens."

The majority of Tomac's sunny outlook can be traced back to the fact he regained the Lites West points lead (and the coveted leader's red plate) last Saturday in Seattle with a third-place finish.

"I didn't like my bike with the black plate on it," Tomac said. "I wanted the red plate back and I made it happen. I've got two more races to hang on and win this championship."

Four riders still have a shot at the Lites West title. Tomac leads second-place Dean Wilson by four points; third-place Cole Seely is 15 back of the lead and Marvin Musquin is in fourth, 23 behind.
