Eli Tomac grabbed another top podium finish on his quest to win the Supercross season championship. Tomac has stretched out his points lead by eighteen with his fourth win of the season and sixth Daytona Supercross victory.
Cooper Webb had the lead most of the race. Tomac sat quietly several spots back, making his move around Malcolm Stewart and Jason Anderson. The three riders came together but stayed upright on their bikes. An impatient Anderson cut across the track and collided with Stewart sending them both down. Behind leader Webb was Chase Sexton. Both were staying clear of the mess developing behind them. Tomac had moved to third. With eleven minutes to go, Tomac made a move around Sexton and began chasing down Webb. Lap after lap, Tomac got closer. As Webb was cut off by a lapper, Tomac made his move with just 45 seconds left on the clock. Tomac has the most wins at Daytona, more than any other rider in its 45-year history.
In the Eastern Regional 250SX class, Stilez Robertson had the holeshot, but his lead was quickly erased by Jett Lawrence. Lawrence wasted zero time stretching out his lead. Robertson held on for second and Cameron McAdoo took the third and final spot on the podium.
