A Moto Battle For The Ages

As it is in all racing, there can only be one champion in Lucas Oil Pro Motocross. Even so, that didn’t stop Star Racing Yamaha’s Eli Tomac and Honda HRC’s Chase Sexton from going wheel to wheel all summer for the prestigious 450 class title. But Tomac wasn’t ready to hang up the boots, and Coker wasn’t ready to let him do it. So for Coker, there was no reason to expect anything less from Tomac. Of the series’ 13 rounds, Sexton and Tomac collectively earned nine overall wins. “I would compare it to Ricky Carmichael and James Stewart,” Lindstrom said, equating Tomac to Carmichael and Sexton to Stewart in this case. The second moto was a different story entirely, although the end result was the same: Tomac first, Sexton second.
