Round 5 – Muddy Creek – Blountville, TN – June 24, 2017
The Pro Motocross series lucked out again by dodging a potential rain-soaked event and racked up another fantastic day of exciting racing in both the 250 and 450 classes. Eli Tomac was back on his game! In Moto One he had a mediocre start, but worked his way through the back and settled into the 2nd position where he finished that moto. In Moto Two, it was a different story as he had a better start and grabbed the lead early, put on a flawless ride and finished 33 seconds over the next rider.
In the 250 Class, it was Star Racing Yamaha’s Aaron Plessinger’s turn to put his Moto-9 Flex on top of the podium. His 1/2 moto scores secured the overall class win. Pro Circuit’s Austin Forkner posted 3/3 moto finishes to grab the last spot on the podium. Adam Cianciarulo finish 4th overall with 2/5 moto finishes.
