Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Eli Tomac has claimed two-consecutive Pro Motocross victories, recording a dominant 1-1 performance at RedBud’s highly-popular sixth round to regain the points lead.

The number three didn’t have it easy in both motos, as he found himself deep within the battle of the top five, and after a spirited performance, he walked away with the win.

Jason Anderson (Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing) was awarded second overall with a 4-2 scorecard, while Marvin Musquin (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing) concluded the top three with a pair of third place finishes.

Former points leader Blake Baggett (Rocky Mountain ATV-MC/WPS/KTM) was fourth after an early crash in race two denied him of a greater result, as Justin Barcia ( Energy/JGR Suzuki) completed the top five.

In the 250MX category, Zach Osborne (Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing) extended his championship points lead with yet another overall victory, lodging 2-1 results for the weekend.

Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/KTM’s Jeremy Martin was second with two third place finishes to his name, as brother Jeremy Martin (GEICO Honda) rounded out the top three with a 1-8 scorecard.

Yamalube Star Racing teammates Mitchell Harrison and Dylan Ferrandis were fourth and fifth respectively, a career-best finish for RedBud local Harrison.
