KX450F - Monster Energy Kawasaki rider Eli Tomac Earns Second Consecutive Podium
May 2, 2016
With only two rounds remaining in the 2016 Monster Energy® AMA Supercross, an FIM Championship season, the Monster Energy Kawasaki team arrived at MetLife Stadium ready for another visit to the podium. Eli Tomac transferred to the Main Event with a third in the second semi while Josh Grant transferred to the main with another win in the 450 Semi. At the gate drop of the Main Event Tomac rounded the first turn in seventh as teammate Grant was pushed wide and immediately began pressing forwards. After 10 laps of aggressive riding, Tomac moved into fifth place and continued charging toward the front. With four laps to go he made a pass for fourth and moments later put the No. 3 KX™450F in second place where he would remain until the checkers. Teammate Grant eventually crossed the line in 16th.
