2017 Toronto 450cc Supercross Results

2017 Toronto 450cc Supercross Results: There just doesn’t seem to be anything that can stop Eli Tomac right now. The Monster Energy Kawasaki rider has been on an absolute tear, and if not for a front-brake malfunction in Atlanta, he’d be nipping at points leader Ryan Dungey’s heels right now in the 2017 Monster Energy/AMA Supercross Series championship.

In Toronto, Tomac once again qualified the quickest, and this time he led every single lap in the 450cc main event on his way to the win. Actually, the main event was a carbon-copy of last weekend’s race in Atlanta, except in reverse. This time, Tomac got out front early and began pulling away while Red Bull KTM’s defending champ Dungey started mid-pack and had to work his way forward.

As Tomac pulled away, Rocky Mountain ATV/MC KTM’s Blake Baggett ran second in front of RCH Suzuki’s Broc Tickle, Baggett’s teammate Davi Millsaps, Ride365 Suzuki’s Malcolm Stewart, and heat-one winner Chad Reed (Factory Yamaha). Then came Honda’s Cole Seely, Dungey’s teammate Marvin Musquin, and then Dungey in ninth to round out lap one.

Dungey worked his way by Reed for fifth on lap six, then went to work on Baggett for fourth as Millsaps fell, moving Baggett back up to third, behind Tickle and Tomac. Dungey made the pass stick for third on lap 12, then set out after Tickle, eventually catching and passing the Suzuki pilot five laps later.

But by then, the race for the win was well over, as Tomac took the win over Dungey, Tickle, Reed, Baggett, Seely, Millsaps, and the rest of the field.

Second-place in points, Marvin Musquin, finished a dismal 13th after suffering from the flu all week, and that allowed Tomac to move past him in points. Tomac now trails Dungey by 24 with 8 races left to run. Mathematically, if Tomac wins out, and Dungey finishes second in every race, they will tie for the championship, and Tomac will take it by virtue of having more wins on the season.

Musquin and Dungey’s teammate Trey Canard was forced to sit out the Toronto race after hitting his head in a crash in the first timed qualifying session.
