Foothill Ranch, CA (January 29, 2017) – Monster Energy Kawasaki riders Eli Tomac and Josh Grant came into Round 4 of the AMA Monster Energy Supercross, an FIM World Championship looking for the win. It wasn’t long before the No. 3 machine was looking comfortable underneath the dome, qualifying four-tenths of a second off the leader.

“We came into this weekend feeling really positive,” said Tomac. “We changed a lot in the week leading up to the weekend, both on the bike and myself. I wasn’t impressed with the results I was getting, so we needed a change and it worked. After tonight’s performance, I truly feel like I’m back to my normal self and I can’t wait for next weekend.”

Tomac would grab the 450 Heat Race 1 holeshot and lead every lap to capture his second heat race victory of the season, while his teammate Grant finished fourth to advance into the Main Event. At the start of the 450 main, Tomac took his second holeshot of the night and quickly began stretching out his lead over the field. At the halfway mark, Tomac had stretched his lead to over 10 seconds on the field and wouldn’t stop there, as his lead reached 18 seconds at one point. Tomac rode his KX™450F flawlessly to his first Monster Energy Supercross victory of the year while teammate Grant took the checkered flag in 12th.

“There are a lot of positives to take out of last night,” said Grant. “My KX™450F got me great starts all night again, putting me in a great position early in the race. I’m getting stronger and building off every weekend. It’s a long season and I’m looking forward to every time I get on the bike.”
