Eli Tomac Has A Mile High Performance In Denver!

Coming into Round 16 in Denver, all Star Racing Yamaha rider Eli Tomac had to do was finish 14th or better if his main championship rival Jason Anderson won the 450SX main event. Well, both riders ended up doing their part as Anderson took the lead early and never looked back. Tomac, who was also nursing a sore knee from a mishap in Atlanta a few weeks back, got off to decent start and then pretty much put his YZ450F on cruise control. By the end of the 450SX main event Tomac had dropped back to 5th place which was good enough for him to clinched his second 450SX Championship. What a year it’s been for the 29th year old and to win the title in front of his hometown fans was just on the icing on the cake. In the 250SX West class, Hunter Lawrence again refused to allow Christian Craig to clinch their title as he rode away to his third win in a row. Craig, who was challenging Lawrence for the lead early, went down in the sand section on lap 5 and was forced to play catch up. He would battle back to third and that would be enough to secure his first-ever SX title. Now the 250SX West Championship will go down to the final race this weekend in Salt Lake City. As he’s been doing all season long Matt Wellumson sent us these incredible photos from Round 16 in Denver.
