Daytona Feels ‘Like Home’ To Eli Tomac

Eli Tomac’s hometown of Cortez, Colo., is approximately 2,000 miles west of Daytona Beach, Fla. And yet, the Colorado native admits he has never felt more at home on a Monster Energy AMA Supercross track than he does when he hits the sandy, high-speed course at Daytona Int’l Speedway. Tomac’s comfortability at the track has been on display year after year, whenever the series pays a visit to the iconic motorsports’ venue. Last Saturday night, the 30-year-old did what he does best and collected his seventh Daytona victory, further solidifying his place at the top of the facility’s win list. However, Tomac’s day in Daytona wasn’t quite as carefree as it has been in years past. It’s pretty typical to see him place somewhere in the top five, but it’s been nearly a year since Tomac earned a fast-qualifier award. It’s not that sandy, but it’s somewhat close,” Tomac said.
