The list of injured riders continues to grow in the 450 class as we add Anderson to the roster with a broken collarbone from a practice crash this week. Tomac was able to challenge Roczen at Muddy Creek but Roczen rode steady and consistent to come out with another 1-1 overall. The red plate and points lead seems to be on repeat for this Jimmy Johns/Soaring Eagle/Suzuki/RCH Racing guy! The 450 podium rounded out with Tomac in second and Roczen’s teammate Broc Tickle taking third.

The 250 Class has so much talent this season. Round 5 at Muddy Creek with the heat and deep ruts seemed to be Cooper Webb’s specialty. If you’ve ever heard the term savage, that was the definition of Webb’s riding style in Moto 2. Webb had 2-1 finishes in his motos and captured the top spot of the podium for the day! Savatgy took second and McElrath in third. This class is stacked with podium contenders. The 2016 rookie, Austin Forkner, with another 4th place moto finish is just knocking on that podium door. The series heads to Red Bud this coming weekend for Round 6!!!
