Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Eli Tomac claimed his fifth consecutive overall victory in the 2018 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship at round 5 at Muddy Creek Raceway in Blountville, Tennessee. Tomac now holds a 32-point lead in the championship standings with 14 more motos left in the series.
“It was a successful day and we’re happy to be taking some points home with us,” Tomac said. “The goal is to get a good start so we’re out front, and I was able to do that in moto 1. Unfortunately, we didn’t get the start we wanted in moto 2 so I really had to battle to make some passes. It feels great to leave here with the overall win, and we’re going to keep working hard every week.”
Monster Energy/Yamaha Factory Racing’s Justin Barcia earned his best finish of the season. With a pair of 2-2 moto finishes, Barcia emerged with second overall in Tennessee and sits third overall in the series point standings.
