It was a big day for Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship rookie Eli Tomac at Spring Creek. After taking his first career moto win in the 450cc class by a 16-second margin, he followed it up with a second consecutive moto win and his first 1-1 sweep. “Today was a tough one the way the track was,” said Tomac, who has finished on the overall podium in each of his four career starts. “Going into the second moto I knew I had to get out there and get a good start.
