AMA Supercross Round #2

Team Honda is on a roll already this year! In the 250cc class Eli Tomac took another win on his 2013 Honda CRF250R for team Geico Honda increasing his points lead over KTM's Ken Roczen. Here is a play by play of the race:

250 Main Event! 15 laps! 9:29 pm they take off! It’s 36 TLD’s Jessy Nelson. But at the end of the first lap – it’s Martin Davalos in the lead! Then Nelson, then Savatgy, then Zach Osborne.

Lap three – Eli Tomac has moved to third. Ken Roczen has moved up to sixth. Davalos leads.

Lap four – Tomac goes past Nelson. Davalos has a 3.5 second lead over Tomac.

At the 1/3 point – 5 laps in – Davalos leads Tomac by 2.5 second. Then it’s Jessy Nelson, Cole Seely, Joey Savatgy, and Ken Roczen. Osborne eighth. Rattray 12th. 250 National Champion Blake Baggett did not make the main …

Lap eight – Tomac goes past Davalos for the lead! It’s Tomac leading, with Davalos chasing. A little ways back in third is Ken Roczen. Then TLD’s Cole Seely and Jessy Nelson.

Eli Tomac is out front and cruising. The defending 250 West Champion has won

The 450 Supercross Final was up next. Justin Barcia won the 1st heat on his Team Muscle Milk 2013 Honda CRF450R followed by Millsaps, Weimer and Chad Reed on another CRF450R. Heat 2 Trey Canard fights hard and holds on to second place and ends up in the 450 Main with no problem. Here is a blow by blow of the main:

450 Supercross Main Event. 20 laps. 9:56 pm gate drops. And it’s Justin Barcia railing around the outside of the first corner with the lead! David Millsaps is second! Chad Reed is third! Ryan Villopoto fourth! Then Weimer, Canard, Stewart.

On the second lap, Villopoto has a quick slide out in a left hand corner. At the end of lap three – the running order is: Justin Barcia, Davi Millsaps, Chad Reed, Jake Weimer, Trey Canard, James Stewart, Ryan Villopoto … and Ryan Dungey is 16th …

Barcia is looking strong and stretching out his lead. Davi Millsaps is second. Chad Reed a ways back in third, and Trey Canard equidistant back in fourth. Then Weimer, Stewart, Villopoto, J Grant, Kevin Windham, Andrew Short, K Chisholm, Weston Peick, and Ryan Dungey up to 13th.

Halfway point: Best racing is Canard in fourth is closing up on Reed in third. And Villopoto is starting to close on both of them. Barcia is way out front …

Lap 12 – Canard passes Reed on a tight left hand corner! Barcia out front, Millsaps safe in second … Canard leads the tight group of himself, Reedy, and RV2.

As they start lap 14, Villopoto makes the pass on Reed right near the finish line jump. And at the end of lap 14, Trey Canard has caught and passed Davi Millsaps!

Lap 15 – Villopoto has moved past Millsaps as well!

The running order as they start the last lap – Barcia leads Canard by 5.5 seconds. How about the Honda Muscle Milk team potentially going 1/2? Third is Ryan Villopoto, then Millsaps, Reed, Weimer, Stewart, Ryan Dungey has moved up to eighth. And then Canard falls twice in the same corner!

Justin Barcia wins it!
