Roczen Continues Lucas Oil MX Success

Canard then fell into the clutches of both Tomac and Dungey, who laid chase on the lead duo throughout the moto. As Tomac began to pressure for the position, Canard went down and handed over the spot to both Tomac and Dungey before remounting. Dungey then looked to challenge Tomac for second, but was unable to do so. Roczen secured the victory by 10.3 seconds over Tomac, while Dungey settled for third.

Roczen’s 1-1 effort was his second this season.

“I really like the track out here, it’s gnarly and it makes it really difficult,” said Roczen. “I had my work cut out for me in the first moto, but I just never let up. Then I let Trey by me off the start and made it tougher on myself, but this was one of those days where my fitness played a factor and I wasn’t going to let it slip away.”

A three-way tie for second in points landed Tomac with a career-best runner-up finish in just his second 450 Class start (4-2), with Dungey assuming third (3-3) and Canard missing out on the overall podium in fourth (2-4). Short rounded out the top five (5-5).

Roczen’s points lead over Dungey has now surpassed a single moto, currently sitting at a 26-point advantage. Canard moved into third, 54 points out of the lead. In just two starts, Tomac has jumped all the way to 12th in the championship standings.
