Eli Tomac will continue his strong championship defense as the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series heads to Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, for Round 6 of the 2023 season.
With his victory in Houston, Tomac has won three of the first four events this season, (Oakland was delayed to next week because of heavy rains last month), and has opened a seven-point lead on Chase Sexton (as the Honda rider stayed close with a runner-up finish after his Anaheim win). A resurgent Cooper Webb trails by 12 points after his fourth consecutive top five to open the season.
Dylan Ferrandis will miss Tampa after the Yamaha rider (and teammate of Tomac) entered concussion protocol because of a crash. Malcom Stewart also is out indefinitely after knee surgery.
