2018 Daytona Supercross | Bell Helmets Race Report | Transworld Motocross
This year’s Daytona track design allowed for easy passing – easy enough for Eli Tomac to pick up his bike in last place and race his way to 2nd overall in the Main event. It was a spectacular ride, to say the least, with Tomac missing the overall win by just seconds. Congrats to Justin Brayton for his first overall Supercross win!
This was definitely Cooper Webb’s best race of the season, finishing 3rd overall and taking his first true podium finish.
Pro Circuit’s Austin Forkner continued his podium streak, this time taking 3rd overall. Forkner is now tied for the lead in the 250SXE points standings.
It was a great night for privateer Wilson Fleming who made his first Supercross Main Event in the 250SXE division, finishing 14th overall.
Martin Davalos continued to put in some strong rides, finishing 5th at Daytona in the 250SXE division.

The Moto-9 Flex is the most advanced helmet we've ever made, designed to manage linear and rotational energy to the head in certain low, mid, and high-speed impacts. The Moto-9 Flex is quickly setting a new level for rider protection in motocross and off-road racing.
