What happened at the Glendale Supercross

Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Eli Tomac scored his second consecutive overall event win in Glendale. In the 450SX Class Main Event, Tomac captured the lead from the start and ran away with the win, leading all 23 laps ahead of Monster Energy/Knich/Yamaha Factory Racing’s Justin Barcia.
“That was a big, big push,” Tomac said on the podium. “The pressure behind me was there the entire time; you couldn’t miss a line. I nailed everything … That was just awesome. We put in a big effort all day and to go out on top was the best.”

Barcia earned his third podium with a second-place finish from the start, ahead of the battle for third. By the checkered flag, Team Honda HRC’s Ken Roczen captured third and his second podium of the season ahead of Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Jason Anderson. Team Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Marvin Musquin found a much-needed top five finish as he recovers from injury.

In the 250SX Class Main Event, Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Joey Savatgy and the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/KTM ride of Shane McElrath, who both came into the race with red number plates and tied in points, ran wheel-to-wheel ahead of the Monster Energy/Yamalube/Star/Yamaha Aaron Plessinger after the start. McElrath found an inside line on Savatgy and caught the lead until Plessinger found a way around both of them for the win and regained the points lead.
