Tomac in good shape after second consecutive AMA supercross win
Coming off of a winning weekend in Anaheim, Monster Energy Kawasaki rider Eli Tomac stood atop of the podium once again with a dominant performance in the AMA Supercross Championship 450SX Main Event at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

After claiming the track to be one of the most technical this season, Tomac earned a transfer in 450SX Heat 1 with a solid third place finish. As soon as the gate dropped in the 450SX Main Event, Tomac made it clear that he intended to get out front and stay there by taking the holeshot and quickly setting the fastest lap time of the event.

The Kawasaki rider continued to lead the field for all 23 laps until the checkered flag waved signifying a second win in as many weeks. The victory brings 26 additional points for Tomac and the team, advancing to tenth in the 2018 Monster Energy Supercross Rider Point Standings.

‰ÛÏStarts were a big push for us this week and I was happy to get out front,‰Û

Fellow Kawasaki rider Josh Grant raced out of the gate in ninth before quickly passing three of his contenders. The No. 33 Kawasaki fought hard to hold off the pack, but just as he started to make his move into fifth, Grant had a slip-up in a corner allowing others to pass and would cross the finish line in 10th place. Grant has been consistently finishing inside of the top-10 at each of the first four rounds and is currently ranked seventh in the standings.

‰ÛÏI was able to ride well all day,‰Û
