Leave a comment

After back to back weeks without a top-five finish, Eli Tomac led both qualification sessions for Round 8 of the Supercross season.

Tomac’s fastest lap of 46.841 beat Dean Wilson (46.893) by .052 seconds.

Justin Brayton (47.478), Joey Savatgy (47.573) and Ken Roczen (47.606) rounded out the top five.

Cole Seely took a rock to the chest in the first round of qualification after setting the third-fastest time in that session. He came out to ride gingerly in the second session, but did not post a single fast lap. His status for the features is questionable.

In the 250 class:

Chase Sexton topped the leaderboard with a time of 47.149 seconds in Round 2 of qualification.

Points leader and winner of the first two 250 East races Austin Forkner was .155 seconds behind in second.

Alex Martin, Justin Cooper and Martin Davalos rounded out the top five.

In the Triple Crown format, the top 18 drivers lock into the features. Two riders from Group B were fast enough to advance with Ramyller Alves (16th fastest overall) and Steven Clarke (18th) making their way in. Joey Crown missed the top 18 by .002 seconds and will have to fight his way through the Last Chance Qualifier.
