Eli Tomac action shots at Atlanta Supercross

Tomac makes the box in the Georgia Dome

Feb 282017

Monster Energy AMA Supercross hurried from Dallas and the vast U.S. Bank Stadium into another superb facility in the form of the Georgia Dome in Atlanta last weekend and while reigning champion Ryan Dungey controlled proceedings for his second victory of the season Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Eli Tomac recovered from a bad start to rally to second spot.

“Tonight ended well,” said Tomac. “Obviously, we wanted the win, but I know my speed was there as I made up 8+ seconds on the leader in the main, which gives me confidence. I just need to work on my starts to make these races easier on myself. Looking forward to rebounding next weekend.”


“We struggled a little bit today and not getting the start in the main definitely made it for a tougher race than I wanted,” said Savatgy. “We are just two points back with seven rounds still to go so there is a lot of racing left. My goal is to be on the podium every race so I’m looking to get back up there next weekend.”


The Monster Energy AMA Supercross ‘train’ will next roll to a stop at the Rogers Centre in Toronto for the sole non-American visit on the 2017 slate.
