There is little doubt that 2017 AMA Supercross has really delivered. After a charge that involved a total of nine victories and the reduction of a deficit in the championship from almost thirty points to seize control of the 450SX division, Eli Tomac now needs the intervention of fate to grasp the crown after an incident-packed penultimate meeting at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.
Wearing the red number plate for the second week in a row the signs were initially positive for the Monster Energy Kawasaki rider and most winningest racer this season. He shot to the front of the sixteenth Main Event from seventeen on the ’17 slate but unfortunately lost control while trying to rail high a corner and tumbled over the front of the bike. #3 was swamped by the pursuing pack and restarted well outside the top ten.
