Red Bull KTM Factory Racing's Marvin Musquin took his third 450SX main-event victory of the season at round 15 of the AMA Supercross series hosted at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts. Musquin got off to an early lead and led 21 laps until Monster Energy Kawasaki's Eli Tomac passed him just before the beginning of the final lap. Musquin then made an aggressive block pass on Tomac, which sent Tomac to the ground and damaged the throttle tube and front brake lever of his KX450F in the process. Musquin rode the remainder of the final lap to take the win, but received boos from the crowd en route to the checkered flag.

“After Eli got past me, I knew I had to do something,” Musquin said. “It [was] for the win. I led so many laps and I was bummed, but I felt like I was riding really good so I knew I could charge. I was going into the main rut the whole main event and he cut really tight; I definitely didn’t expect it. Obviously, the outcome was pretty brutal and I’m sorry about what happened with the crash, but it could have been bad for me too. It was for a 450 main-event win—sometimes you have to try your hardest and I know I did that.”

Tomac began his day by setting the fastest qualifying time in practice and made his way from ninth to second in his heat race. In the main event, Tomac rode in second place for a majority of the race before passing Musquin on the second-to-last lap before being on the receiving end of Musquin’s aggressive pass. Tomac remounted his KX450F to take second place in Foxborough.

“Today actually went really well,” Tomac said. “It is unfortunate that it had to end the way it did, but everything up until that point was great and I felt like I was really jelling with the bike today. There was a lot of positives to take away from today and we will move on to some outdoor testing this week and come into Salt Lake City refreshed.”

“It was a pretty consistent day,” Anderson said. “I had good qualifying sessions, then as the night went on, I got a heat race win then a third place in the main. I earned some more points. I’m just trying to move forward and I’m excited to get the championship wrapped up.”
