At the second round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship at Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, California, Monster Energy Kawasaki's Eli Tomac continued his winning streak by going 1-1 on the day at the famed racetrack.

Tomac started off by finishing second in timed qualifying and got off to a third-place start in moto 1. The Kawasaki rider quickly moved his way into second and passed Team Honda HRC's Ken Roczen at around the 20-minute mark and rode mistake-free for the remainder of the race to take the victory. In moto 2, Tomac put his KX450F in fifth place off the start and took the lead with two laps remaining and won by 16 seconds, which marked his fourth moto victory of the season.

“I felt comfortable on my bike all day and I was just having fun out there,” Tomac said. “I found some awesome lines in the end, so I just kept charging until I finally made it to the front. I'm doing everything I can for us to keep this number 1 plate and we're off to a great start.”

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing's Marvin Musquin got off to a top-10 start in moto 1 where he navigated his way through the chaos to settle into seventh on the opening lap. He put on an early charge to take over fourth by lap two, and he made his move into third by the halfway point. Musquin charged after the lead duo and eventually caught the second-place rider on lap 12 and remained there to take the runner-up spot in the race. In moto 2, Musquin shot off the line to capture second off the start and he held a solid pace for the first seven laps. He made a couple of mistakes that ultimately dropped him back to third in the second half of the race and he maintained the final podium position all the way to the checkers. With combined moto scores of 2-3, Musquin earned second overall.

“It’s a good result but I always want better and to win,” Musquin said. “I finally got a decent start in the second moto. I was fighting for the lead and Jason [Anderson] was riding really well. I was right there, but missing a little bit of speed and after [the] halfway [point], I lost the momentum, the feeling; and on that track, if you’re not on it, it will bite you. I had some sketchy moments and made some mistakes, so I figured it was best to play it smart and safe toward the end. I’m a little disappointed finishing moto 2 that way, but I’m looking forward to the third round in the championship.”

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing's Jason Anderson was top 10 at the start of moto 1 and came out of the first lap in fourth. He inherited the third-place spot after Team Honda HRC's Christian Craig went down while leading, and continued to charge before conceding the position to Musquin around the halfway point and finishing fourth. In moto 2, he pulled the holeshot and led every lap, but with two laps to go, he conceded the position to Tomac. Anderson finished that moto in second, giving him 4-2 for third overall on the day and is currently third in the point standings.

“This weekend was definitely better than last weekend,” Anderson said. “I qualified first, which was pretty cool. I started up front in the first moto, but I got a little tight so I ended up fourth. I pulled a big holeshot in the second moto and led all the way up until two laps to go until I got passed by Tomac. All in all, it was progress so it was a good day."
