KX450 - Monster Energy Kawasaki Rider Eli Tomac Captures his Eighth Top-Five Finish of the Year

March 21, 2016

Eli Tomac was joined by Josh Grant as the Monster Energy® Kawasaki team entered Round 11 of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM Championship, held in the “Motor City” of Detroit. Tomac started off the night with a second place finish in Heat 1, while Grant had the opportunity to turn a few extra laps, qualifying out of Semi 1. After the gate drop of the Main Event, Tomac and Grant started off mid-pack and immediately began moving forward. Consistent laps and smooth lines allowed Tomac to race his way into fifth place at the finish. While working towards the front, Grant was involved in a mid-air collision with another rider. Fortunately Grant was able to remount his KX™450F and continue moving forward, eventually crossing the line in 12th.
