Tomac Tops Podium at High Point

Tomac Tops Podium at High Point

The Lucas Oil Outdoor Pro Motocross series traveled east to High Point Raceway in Pennsylvania over the weekend. Eli Tomac was back atop the podium with the overall weekend victory.

In the first 450 moto, Chase Sexton had the holeshot and early moto lead and carried that momentum all the way to the end. Eli Tomac finished in second place. In the second moto, Ryan Dungey secured the holeshot. He had pressure from several riders including Ken Roczen who made a pass for the lead. Sexton shot into the lead but made a mistake that allowed Roczen to reclaim the position. It wasn’t long before Eli Tomac made his move to the lead. Tomac built himself a nice five second cushion that no rider was able to break. Tomac’s win gave him the overall for the weekend.

In the 250 class, Seth Hammaker was out front leading the first moto. Michael Mosiman moved into striking distance of Hammaker, eventually passing for the lead. Unfortunately, Mosiman went down in a rut which allowed Hunter Lawrence to claim the lead and the win. In the second moto, Hammaker again had the holeshot. His lead wouldn’t last long as the rider went down allowing several riders to get past. That put Hunter Lawrence in the lead. Just behind, Hunter’s brother Jett was battling to get the lead. Hunter bobbled, and Jett shot out front. The brothers would battle back and forth until Jett was able to open up a gap in lap traffic that allowed him to win the moto. The brothers would leave the weekend with the overall tie.
