Eli Tomac Extends Contract With Monster Energy Yamaha Racing

Posted:

Eli Tomac will defend his 2022 450 AMA Motocross Championship with Yamaha.

Eli Tomac will line up for the 2023 AMA Pro Motocross season after putting ink to paper for a contract extension with the Monster Energy Yamaha Racing team beyond the supercross season.

After a phenomenal debut season with the team in 2022 with two titles and a Motocross of Nations victory, Tomac continues to lead the way. The defending Monster Energy AMA Supercross Champion has yet to relinquish the red plate, scoring four victories in six rounds to hold a seven-point lead in the standings. Tomac also continues to add his name to the record books, tying Ricky Carmichael last weekend with third in the all-time win list with 48 victories in the Supercross premier class.

“At the beginning of the season, I truly thought this was going to be a farewell tour, but I’ve been having too much fun racing my motorcycle. I have been enjoying every minute along the way with the team, so I’m excited to announce that I will be racing the entire SMX series,” Tomac said.

“We’re thrilled to have Eli on board for the entire SMX season!” Jeremy Coker – Monster Energy Yamaha Star Racing 450 Team Manager – added, “It’s been a great start to 2023, and he has been riding phenomenally. We look to keep that momentum going for the rest of the year and defend the 450 titles in both supercross and motocross, and take the title in this first SuperMotocross World Championship.”

Jim Roach – Yamaha Racing Department Manager for YMUS – concluded saying, “We’re excited to have Eli with us for the rest of this inaugural SMX World Championship. The racing has been better than ever, so it’s not only great for Yamaha and the team to have Eli continue racing but also for the sport. 2022 was an incredible year, and it’s been great to see that momentum continue to grow this season with the all-new YZ450F. We look forward to seeing the #1 plates in both championships and to continue paving the way for success.”
