Eli Tomac Banks Another Win at Oakland Supercross

Eli Tomac Banks Another Win at Oakland Supercross

The Supercross Series held a rescheduled round in Oakland over the weekend. The race originally set for January as the second round on the schedule was rained out and moved to February 18th.

Chase Sexton had the holeshot when the gate dropped. Cooper Webb quickly moved into second with Tomac following in third. Tomac moved around Webb and began to chase down Sexton. With just six minutes left on the clock, Sexton crashed into a corner marker. Tomac moved to the lead. Sexton remounted and held on for second until Webb made his move. Once Webb was around Sexton, he began to chase Tomac down. On the final lap, Tomac made an error, landing awkwardly into the face of a small jump. Webb charged hard and Tomac was able to hold on, claiming the win by less than a second. Tomac now ties Ricky Carmichael for all-time wins at 48.

The Western Regional 250sx were back at Oakland and just the same as the Eastern stories unfolded, a Lawrence was on the top of the podium. Jett Lawrence wasted no time getting around several riders including holeshotter RJ Hampshire. Jett has a 20-point lead in the standings over Hampshire.
