Monster Energy SX_031116

450SX Class

  • Patience Pays Off: Despite just one podium finish in the first eight races, Eli Tomac’s patience paid off with the fourth 450SX Class win of his career.
  • Making it Count: Tomac’s 20 laps led in Daytona were his first of the 2016 season.
  • Rare Air: Tomac joined Kevin Windham as the only Daytona winners since 1996 without a 450SX Class title to their name.
  • Kawasaki Back on Top: Monster Energy Kawasaki ended a 25-race winless streak that dated back to Ryan Villopoto’s final Monster Energy Supercross victory in Las Vegas to end the 2014 season.
  • Best of the Best: Ryan Dungey’s runner-up finish allowed him to tie the all-time podium streak of 25 established by Chad Reed from ’03 to ’04.
  • Leaving His Mark: Dungey has the best top-five (88.9%) and top-10 (98.1%) finishing percentages in Monster Energy Supercross history. He has just two finishes outside the top 10 in his 450SX Class career (109 starts).
  • Mr. Dependable: Despite having only 13 career 450SX Class starts, Marvin Musquin has failed to finish inside the top 10 just once, at the opening race of the 2016 season.
  • Strange Territory: Chad Reed raced in his first Last Chance Qualifier since Salt Lake City in 2013.
  • All-Time Depth: With the addition of Josh Grant in Daytona, a total of 19 riders have transferred into the Main Event from the Heat Race. Nine riders have earned a Heat Race win.

Eastern Regional 250SX Class

  • Out of Action: Current championship leader Martin Davalos will not compete in Toronto, almost certainly resulting in a loss of the points lead this weekend.
  • Wide Open Start: Five different riders have finished on the podium in the first two races.
  • Seize the Moment: Jeremy Martin’s three laps led ties him with Joey Savatgy for the lowest total in a winning 250SX Class effort this season.
  • Resilient: Justin Hill is passing an average of 10 riders through the first two races of the season, by far the largest start-to-finish discrepancy in the division.
  • Breakout Ride: Privateer Jesse Wentland earned his first ever top-10 finish in Daytona, finishing eighth.
