– Eli Tomac dominated en route to his first career victory, sweeping each of Saturday’s motos to become the fourth different winner in the 450 Class this season at the AMA Lucas Oil Pro Motocross championship.

“Today was a tough one the way the track was,” said Tomac, who has finished on the overall podium in each of his four career starts. “Going into the second moto I knew I had to get out there and get a good start. … I was just hitting my marks and I felt really comfortable.”

After taking his second overall win of the season one week ago, Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey of Belle Plaine, Minn., finished third in the first 450 Class moto and second in the second to finish second overall at his home track. Dungey is second in the standings to Ken Roczen, who finished third overall Saturday.

In the 250 Class, Millville native Jeremy Martin put his Yamalube/Star Racing Yamaha atop the podium for the fourth time this season, extending his points lead with a triumphant effort at the track owned and operated by his parents. Martin has a 43-point lead over Cooper Webb, who won the second race but finished ninth in the first.
