Monster Energy Supercross – Round 13 – St. Louis, MO – April 1, 2017
It might have been April Fools’ Day – but for Bell Helmets’ Eli Tomac, it was another do-or-die weekend. With only four rounds remaining, it was imperative for Tomac to keep his win streak alive to capture the 2017 Supercross Championship – and that’s exactly what the Factory Kawasaki pilot did. After a block pass on the leader on the first lap, Tomac controlled the entire race to the finish line where he collected his fifth win in a row – eight for the season. Tomac is now only four points behind the leader with four rounds remaining. Next stop is Seattle, Washington.
