The Red Bull Tennessee National, Round 5 of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, produced a wild afternoon of competition on Saturday from one of the newest tracks in the series at Muddy Creek Raceway. Needing a win in the final 450 Class moto, Red Bull KTM’s Ken Roczen did just that to ensure his third overall win in just five career starts in the premier division. In the 250 Class, Yamalube/Star Racing Yamaha’s Cooper Webb broke through for his first career win to become the 75th different winner in the history of the division.

GEICO Honda’s Eli Tomac made his anticipated 450 Class debut at Muddy Creek following a lengthy recovery from a broken collarbone. Last year’s 250 Class title winner made his presence felt immediately by setting the fastest lap of practice, and then carried that momentum into the opening moto by grabbing the Motosport.com Holeshot Award. As Tomac and Roczen positioned themselves out front, a huge first turn pileup included most recent winner James Stewart and his Team Yoshimura Suzuki in addition to Discount Tire Racing/TwoTwo Motorsports’ Chad Reed, and Toyota/Yamaha/N-Fab/JGRMX’s Josh Grant.

Roczen made a pass on Tomac for the lead on the opening lap only to go down the next time around and fall to fourth. Tomac seized the opportunity to lead his first ever 450 Class moto, impressively holding off Team Honda Muscle Milk’s Trey Canard and a hard-charging Ryan Dungey for over half the race. Dungey made his way by Canard and set his sights on Tomac out front, closing in lap-by-lap and eventually making the pass on Lap 9. Roczen rebounded from his early trouble to follow Dungey past Tomac and into second, pitting the teammates in a battle for the win. Dungey maintained his advantage throughout the remainder of the race to take the moto win, his first since the opening round, while Roczen followed in second. Tomac finished third with Canard fourth, while Stewart passed nearly the entire field to finish fifth.

Knowing he needed a good start in order to have a shot at his second overall win of the season, Dungey raced to the Motosport.com Holeshot Award in Moto 2, only to be passed by Roczen on the opening lap. The KTM riders proceeded to consistently pull away from the field from that point on, meaning the win would be decided between the teammates. Tomac slotted into third off the start and maintained control of the podium spot despite pressure from Canard. Out front, Dungey closed in on Roczen as they approached lappers in the late stages of the race but was unable to mount a serious challenge, which allowed Roczen to steal the overall win. Tomac followed in third.

Both Dungey and Roczen finished the afternoon with identical moto results, but Roczen’s better second moto finish gave him the edge in the tiebreaker.

“I felt good out there. I got a good start [in the second moto] and even had a close call out there with about two laps to go which caused me to lose a bit a time, but I still made it happen,” said Roczen, who has finished third or better in every moto this season. “I’m happy it’s over. It was another good weekend and we were able to keep the points lead steady.”

“All in all it was a good day,” said Dungey. “I pushed it that whole second moto. I tried [to close in on Roczen] and got fortunate with the lappers coming in there, but then they came my way and it kind of averaged out. We gave it all we had and that was all I can do.”

It marked the third time this season that the KTM duo has finished 1-2 overall. Tomac’s pair of solid third-place finishes guaranteed a spot on overall podium in his 450 Class debut, with Canard fourth (4-4) and BTO Sports KTM’s Andrew Short fifth (6-8). Stewart endured even more misfortune in the second moto to soldier home with an 11th-place finish and land eighth overall (5-11), one round after his dominant win.

With no points being exchanged between Roczen and Dungey, 16 markers still separate the pair at the top of the championship standings. Stewart’s challenging day dropped him to 43 points out of the lead in third, with just one point separating him and Canard in fourth.

Coming into Muddy Creek, every moto win and overall victory in the 250 Class was split between two riders – Yamalube/Star Racing Yamaha’s Jeremy Martin and Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Blake Baggett. The former series champion Baggett entered the day with back-to-back wins at the previous two rounds, while Martin controlled the championship points lead.

As the gate dropped on the first moto, Frenchman Christophe Pourcel put his Valli Motorsports Yamaha out front for the Motosport.com Holeshot Award, with Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Justin Hill hot on his rear fender. Behind them, Martin found himself on the ground in the first corner following a multi-rider incident and started at the rear of the field.

As Pourcel and Hill did battle out front, GEICO Honda’s Justin Bogle and Webb closed in. Both Bogle and Webb moved past Hill before Webb then took over second place from Bogle just a couple laps later. Baggett started inside the top five and also began a surge to the front, and before long it became a three-rider battle for the lead between Pourcel, Webb and Baggett. On Lap 11 Webb took control of the moto from Pourcel and brought Baggett with him. The pair pulled away in the closing laps, which allowed Baggett to make a desperate move in the final corner and somehow pass Webb on the outside to edge him out at the line by .080 seconds. Pourcel finished third, with Bogle fourth and Red Bull KTM’s Marvin Musquin fifth. Martin fought his way through the field to finish 10th.

With a four moto winning streak in his favor, Baggett sought to claim three-straight overall victories for the first time in his career but had to overcome a slew of riders at the start of the second moto. Bogle earned the Motosport.com Holeshot Award but was pushed by Pourcel and Webb early, with each rider making the pass to set the tone out front. Webb wasted little time in putting himself in control, passing Pourcel for the lead before the conclusion of the opening lap.

Once out front, Webb was able to maintain his advantage even though Baggett made his way from another top five start to come within bike lengths of Webb with just a handful of laps remaining. After several pass attempts, Baggett made a slight bobble that opened some space between he and Webb. Shortly thereafter, Baggett made contact with a lapped rider that forced him to the ground, allowing Bogle to assume second and causing Pourcel to crash as well. Webb raced on knowing the win was his and capped off a career day by winning his first career moto and securing his first overall victory in the process. Bogle finished second with Baggett coming back to finish third.

“I’m on cloud nine, I’m not going to lie. I was beating myself up when I got passed in the last turn [in Moto 1], but I was able to come back and get the job done,” said Webb, who hails from North Carolina and considers Muddy Creek to be his home race. “To do this at my home race, I could hear these guys [the fans] every single lap. Baggett was on me the whole moto, but I told myself I wasn’t going to let him by. I’m so pumped.”

Webb had earned five runner-up finishes in nine motos prior to the win, including two second place overall finishes. Baggett’s 1-3 results placed him second overall, while Bogle’s runner-up finish in the second moto helped move him to third overall (4-2). Pourcel was fourth (3-4) while Musquin rounded out the top five (5-5).

Martin was never a factor in either moto after difficult starts and ultimately finished a season-worst seventh overall after posting 10-6 moto scores. Despite that, he still sits atop the 250 Class standings albeit by just eight points over his teammate Webb. Baggett closed in to within 17 points of the lead in third.

“The only thing I’m concerned about is getting a good week of practice and coming out strong at RedBud,” said Martin, who also earned his first career win earlier this season. “I rode as hard as I could today and gave it everything I had, so I can walk away knowing I did everything I could. We’ll just come back stronger.”

The 2014 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship will reach the halfway point next weekend with its annual 4th of July tradition at the Red Bull RedBud National. RedBud MX in Buchanan, Michigan, will host the sixth round of the season on Saturday, July 5. Action begins at 1 p.m. ET.

Ken Roczen And Ryan Dungey Finish 1-2 At Muddy Creek National In Tennessee

Ken Roczen 2014 Motocross Muddy Creek - 1st Place

Red Bull KTM Factory riders Ken Roczen and Ryan Dungey each took a moto win at the Muddy Creek National to finish 1st and 2nd overall for the day at the fifth round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship Series.

Both Ken Roczen and Ryan Dungey earned good starts out of the gate in moto one. Roczen passed into the lead on the second lap but crashed half a lap later and dropped to 4th place. His crash allowed Eli Tomac, Trey Canard and Dungey to go by. He quickly recovered and caught on to the rear wheel of Dungey and the two teammates began to pressure the top two riders. On their KTM 450 SX-Fs they quickly moved to the front of the pack and began to pull away from the rest of the field.

Dungey and Roczen stayed close to each other through the entirety of the race until Roczen suffered another tip over with three laps to go. He returned to the track without losing a position but did not close back on his teammate. Dungey went on to take the moto win with Roczen finishing approximately 10 seconds back in the runner-up position.

In moto two, Dungey leaped out to another great start earning the holeshot. Roczen was immediately behind him and made the pass for the lead in the opening lap. Dungey did not let Roczen out of his sight and the two riders pulled to a massive lead out front as they battled each other for the win. Near the end of the moto lappers became a problem for both riders and allowed the gap between them to close. When the checkered flag flew, it was Roczen who claimed the second moto win followed by Dungey. The KTM riders were an impressive full minute ahead of the 3rd place finisher.

“I think having Ryan (Dungey) push me the whole moto today helped us both stretch our lead out front”, remarked Roczen of their impressive lead on the field. “We have both been training hard and it is showing on the track.”

Roczen’s 2-1 scores earned him the overall victory for the day while Dungey’s 1-2 motos placed him 2nd overall. The two riders still maintain the top two positions in the overall point standings.

After the race, Dungey commented: “I’ve been able to train in the hot weather lately and that really paid off for me today. The bike felt great and I got off to good starts both motos. The lappers definitely made a difference in the second moto but I am glad to run up front with my teammate and to see both Red Bull KTM bikes on the top of the box.”

GEICO Honda Muddy Creek MX Report

Eli Tomac 2014 Motocross Muddy Creek - 3rd Place

Eli Tomac – Photo: Simon Cudby

After missing the first four races of the motocross season, GEICO Honda rider Eli Tomac came back in style, snatching third-place finishes in both 450 motos during the Tennessee National at Muddy Creek Raceway.

“It was a great start for me in my return to the motocross circuit,” Tomac said. “We started off the day well with a first-place qualifying effort, which gave me a good spot on the start. In fact, I got the holeshot in the first moto and led for about 15 minutes but got passed by the two KTM riders at the end.

“I had another solid start in the second moto and ended up in the top five at the start. I worked my way up to third and was a little bit closer to the KTM guys than I was in the first moto. That team just had a super-strong race. I did what I could in both motos, but I honestly couldn’t ask for more in my first race back.”

Justin Bogle 2014 Motocross 250MX Muddy Creek - 3rd Place

Teammate Justin Bogle was looking to rebound after his last 250 race didn’t go as well. He secured a third-place overall finish in Blountville after capturing a solid fourth in the first moto and a second-place finish in the second moto.

“I had a tough week at home, so I came into this event not in the best position,” Bogle said. “To get up on the podium this week was a good step in the right direction but I’m still hungry for more. The next goal is definitely getting a moto win and going from there. We’re making progress and getting closer.”

Bogle, the 2014 250SX East champion, knows that in order to continue his quest to capture a moto win and eventually the championship he needs to remain as healthy as possible.

“I’m feeling better and fitness is good,” Bogle said. “That’s my strong point right now I think. Today was one of the most humid races we will have this season. The heat is not an issue; it’s the humidity. If we could make it through the intense humidity we had today, we should be pretty good for the rest of the season. I definitely felt good fitness-wise today.”

Zach Bell 2014 Motocross 250MX Muddy Creek - 16th Place

However, fellow 250 rider Zach Bell’s day didn’t go quite as initially expected when an early qualifying crash hindered his performance during both motos. After having to pull in early during the first moto, scoring a 38th-place finish, Bell rebounded to 12th in the second moto and 16th overall.

“The day started off good for us,” Bell said. “In the first qualifying session I was second-fastest, but in the second session I crashed and hurt my shoulder pretty badly. I still went out in the first moto and was running in the top 10 for a while, but it was so bad to hang on to with my shoulder that I decided to pull off and just call it so I wouldn’t hurt myself more.

“In the second moto I had to start out on the outside and almost got the holeshot. I was running in the top five for almost 20 minutes, but I started getting tired with my shoulder injury. It was getting hard to hang on to again, so I let a few people get by me so I could just finish the race.”

The next stop for the GEICO Honda MX riders is the RedBud National, next Saturday, in Buchanan, Mich.

James Stewart Fights Back At Muddy Creek

James Stewart 2014 Motocross Muddy Creek - 8th Place

James Stewart

For Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing’s James Stewart, round five of the 2014 AMA Pro Motocross Championships was fraught. The Yoshimura Suzuki rider got caught up in not one, but two turn-one pile-ups, but rebounded on his Suzuki RM-Z450 in both motos and salvaged a hard-fought eighth-place overall at Muddy Creek Raceway.

Stewart came into the Tennessee National having swept the previous round with both moto wins and the overall victory. His hopes for this race were high, but unfortunately, he suffered an alarming amount of bad luck in both motos. In the first, he was collected up in a turn-one melee but still persevered and worked his way back to fifth from almost last. Then the second moto started similarly, with Stewart going down with a group in the first turn and having to come from the back of the field. Still, he rode fearlessly and had raced through to ninth when he went down again in the ruts. Even so, the championship-winning rider pushed ahead and finished 11th in the moto and eighth for the day.

“Today was fun,” said Stewart after the race. “The results weren’t that cool but I had fun today and want to thank the fans; they were awesome out there. Another good thing is that we’ve been working on the Yoshimura Suzuki RM-Z450 and getting really good. I think we only made a couple of clicker changes all day and I had some really good speed. I felt like if I hadn’t gone down on the starts, I would have been out there and had a chance to win the races. So my confidence is still there. I actually think I rode better today than I did when I won at High Point two weeks ago. So now, we’ll go back and rest-up and get ready to make something happen at RedBud.”

Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing’s next race is round six of the 2014 AMA Pro Motocross Championships on Saturday, July 5th at the RedBud National in Buchanan.

Blake Baggett Keeps The Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki Team On The Podium At Muddy Creek

In the heat and humidity of Eastern Tennessee, Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Blake Baggett went 1-3 in the 250 Class to earn his third straight podium finish in the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship at Muddy Creek Raceway on Saturday. Baggett returned to the podium after a thrilling Moto 1 win by just eight one-hundredths of a second and a third-place finish in the second moto. Dean Wilson returned to racing after an injury at the season opener finishing ninth overall with a 14-7 result. Justin Hill rode his Kawasaki KX250F to the front early in the first moto, but an injury to his right hand forced him to miss the second moto and finish 15th overall. Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Brett Metcalfe overcame a back injury during the week to earn seventh overall with a 9-7 result.

Runner Up
Baggett has reached mid-season form in the last few races and his trademark of finishing strong was never more applicable than in the first moto at Muddy Creek. Baggett slowly worked his way towards the front of the field and stalked the leader until the very last corner where he launched his way to the moto win by just .080 seconds. In the second moto Baggett was running up front from the beginning but throughout the moto he battled with lapped traffic. As he tried to pass for the lead, he ultimately got caught out by a lapper and went down, forcing him to settle for third. With his 1-3 result, Baggett gained 19 points in the championship standings.

“Today was a good day for me as far as points are concerned, but I feel I could have gotten the win,” said Baggett. “We have been working hard and I think the hard work is showing during the race. In the first moto I knew I had to go for it and I was pretty sure I won the moto because I was ahead of Cooper. In the second moto we were battling for most of the race, but late in the moto a lapper stopped right in front of me and I had nowhere to go. I went down, but I was still able to get back up to finish second.”

Perseverance
Metcalfe came into the weekend doubtful he would be able to race after injuring his back earlier in the week. With the injury, his back locked up and he has been working since Wednesday to loosen it up. In the first moto, the Australian was caught up in the first turn pileup, but he was able to get going and move into the top ten. In the second moto a better start saw Metty running solidly in the top ten the entire moto.

“The race went well,” said Metcalfe. “The Monster Energy Kawasaki team did a great job setting up the bike and making adjustments between motos. It has been a hard week with my back going out, but I was able to gut through it and when I was racing I didn’t really feel any pain, but in the middle of the motos it really started to tighten up. I’m looking forward to healing more this week and heading into RedBud at 100 percent.”

Welcome Back
After a gnarly cut to the back of his knee at Glen Helen, Wilson returned to racing at Muddy Creek looking to regain his championship form. Wilson was caught up in a first turn crash in the opening moto and slowly plodded his way through the field to score a 14th place result. In the second moto, Wilson was able to avoid trouble in Turn One and rode strong in the top 10 to finish seventh in the moto and earn ninth overall

“I was disappointed to go down in the first moto,” said Wilson. ”I wanted to get back into the rhythm of racing and unfortunately I had to do that while fighting my way through the pack. The second moto went much better since I was in a battle the whole time. I’m going to keep working to get a win this season.”

Red Bull KTM Factory rider Marvin Musquin had an impressive ride earning two 5th place finishes to earn 5th overall at the fifth round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship Series held at Muddy Creek Raceway.

Marvin Musquin had to fight for his 5th place result in moto one when he got off to a poor start. He clocked in on the first lap in 15th place and steadily worked his way up through the pack. By the halfway point he had climbed into 7th place and began setting his sights on the next two riders. The next lap he was able to get around Cole Seely and Justin Hill to take 5th place. On his KTM 250 SX-F he pulled ahead of them and maintained that spot through the checkered flag.

In the second moto Musquin got off to a much better start and crossed the first lap in 6th place. On the third lap he moved into 5th position. He maintained that position for the remainder of the moto while also closing the gap to 4th place. His 5-5 moto results earned him 5th overall for the day. Now five rounds into the series, Musquin sits 6th overall in the point standings. Fellow KTM rider Jason Anderson finished with a 9-35 result and is 7th overall.

Team TLD / Lucas Oil / Honda Tackles Tennessee

Malcolm Stewart 2014 Motocross Muddy Creek - 11th Place

Malcolm Stewart – Photo: Simon Cudby

The Troy Lee Designs / Lucas Oil / Honda riders came into Muddy Creek ready to shake things up. They were met with muggy conditions and a track that was as technical and tricky as anything they will see all year. The ruts were deep, sticky and treacherous, and they claimed riders all day long. The team is still flying in missing-man formation as they wait for Shane McElrath to return from injury. His back is healing and it will be a very short time until we see Shane under the tent and suited up once again.

In the 450 class, Malcolm Stewart‘s day started off on the wrong foot. A first turn pileup claimed Malcolm and a slew of other top riders. He got going quickly only to crash into the back of another rider three laps later and fall further behind. Stewart persevered and would post a 14th place finish in moto one to at least salvage some points. The second moto went much better; at least he didn’t hit the ground. But the Muddy Creek ruts and bump made it difficult for Malcolm to find his rhythm and he just couldn’t seem to find the pace he needed to get to the front. He still made some headway and would be 10th at the end of the moto for 11th overall on the day.

Cole Seely 2014 Motocross 250MX Muddy Creek - 6th Place

The 250 class roared up the start hill and TLD riders Jessy Nelson and Cole Seely were sitting in 10th and 12th positions, respectively. Cole picked his way through the Tennessee ruts and moved all the way to 6th at the moto’s end. His teammate, Nelson, would follow the team captain in for 7th. The next moto, both riders were once again just outside the top ten off the start and they both moved forward. Cole would push his way to 8th while Jessy would finish 10th. Seely and Nelson finished 6th and 8th overall at Muddy Creek, a solid result at a very difficult venue.

As the series nears the halfway mark, the Troy Lee Designs / Lucas Oil / Honda team is poised to make a push to the front. Seely and Nelson are both one good start away from a podium finish, Malcolm is in the same boat on the 450 and McElrath is ready to join the fray soon. As the tour hits Red Bud this weekend in Michigan, be sure to cheer for the TLD boys.
