A charge through the pack in moto two at Fox Raceway saw Eli Tomac pull off the most dominant victory of the 2021 season to secure his second consecutive overall win in Pro Motocross.

After the was a slow start to his final season with the Monster Energy Kawasaki team, Tomac has come on strong late in the 2021 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross season.

The three-time 450MX champion finished the first two rounds of the championship outside of the top five, but slowly started winning second motos as the season wore on.

His recent focus on securing a better finish in moto one carried over to Fox Raceway for the penultimate round of the season, going 2-1 and eventually winning moto two by over 40 seconds.

“I felt great in Moto 2! I started around 10th but was able to make passes quick by using some secondary lines around the track,” Tomac explained. “It is just so much fun when I get into the zone like that and I’m able to click off laps out front.

“Also, winning the race by over 40 seconds was amazing and it feels good to be coming on strong right now.”

With his departure from Kawasaki looming, it’s all but confirmed that he’ll be heading to Monster Energy Star Racing Yamaha to team up with newly-crowned 450MX champion Dylan Ferrandis.

As he enters the off-season with plenty of momentum,  be a contender come 2022 as he throws a leg over what’s become one of the best bikes in the paddock.

He’ll get one more shot to bring a win to Monster Energy Kawasaki this Saturday at Hangtown for the final round of the 2021 season.
