Toronto AMA Supercross – Key Insights and Fascinating Facts
Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, welcomed its fourth different 450SX Class Main Event winner last weekend when last year's championship runner-up Eli Tomac grabbed his first win of 2016 and his first with Monster Energy Kawasaki.

The increased parity within the premier class is a complement to the Eastern Regional 250SX Class Championship, which has had two different winners in its first two races, and headlines Monster Energy Supercross' anticipated return across the border to Canada's largest city of Toronto and the legendary Rogers Centre this Saturday, March 12.

Some key insights to watch heading into this Saturday night's race (Round 10) include:

  • Eli Tomac earned his fourth career 450SX Class win and is now tied for 30th on the all-time wins list with Doug Henry, Donnie Hansen, Darrell Shultz, and Jimmy Weinert. Another victory would move him into a tie for 26th all time.

  • Tomac is the 17th different rider to win a 450SX Class race on a Kawasaki and now has victories on two separate brands (Honda and Kawasaki).

  • Tomac's win was the first for Monster Energy Kawasaki since Ryan Villopoto won the 2014 season finale in Las Vegas.

  • Ryan Dungey earned his 81st career podium in his 109th start in the 450SX Class, tying him with Mike LaRocco for fourth all-time. His career podium percentage of 74.07% is second to only Ricky Carmichael at 75.65%.

  • Dungey's top-five finishing percentage (88.89%) and top-10 finishing percentage (98.15%) are the best in the history of the sport. He hasn't finished outside the top five since the 16th race of the 2014 season and has finished outside the top 10 just twice in his 450SX Class career.

  • With his 25th consecutive podium finish, Dungey tied Chad Reed for the longest streak in history. Dungey also extended his current all-time record of top-two finishes to 20.

  • Marvin Musquin has finished outside the top 10 just once in 13 career 450SX Class starts.

  • Only Dungey, Jason Anderson, Ken Roczen, and Cole Seely have a top-10 finish in each race this season.

  • In addition to three career 250SX Class wins, Jeremy Martin has eight podiums and 16 top-five finishes in his 21 career starts. He has failed to qualify for one Main Event in each of the last two seasons.

  • Martin Davalos is the only Eastern Regional 250SX Class rider to finish on the podium in both races this season. A total of five riders already have a podium result in 2016.
