6 months ago | Words: AMA MX | Photos: AMA MX

The 2019 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship made its annual visit to Southern Maryland for the 30th running of the GEICO Motorcycle Budds Creek National at the historic Budds Creek Motocross Park. A huge crowd filled the facilities hillsides as they watched the world’s best racers face challenging conditions throughout the day.

It was all about Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Eli Tomac in the 450 Class, becoming just the fourth rider to clinch a third consecutive title. Tomac proved to be unstoppable en route to a dominant 1-1 performance for a class-leading fifth victory of the season. The win marked the 22nd of his career and puts him in a tie with Ricky Johnson for fourth on the all-time 450 Class win list. Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Jason Anderson used an impressive second moto charge for second overall (4-2), while Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Marvin Musquin completed the podium in third (3-3).

In the 250 Class, Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/KTM’s Shane McElrath was the surprise winner by sweeping both motos for the second overall victory of his career and first this season. Championship point leader Adam Cianciarulo’s 2-5 moto scores were good enough for second on the day, extending his lead to 30-points with just one round remaining. The Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki rider continues to lead Monster Energy/Star/Yamaha Racing’s Dylan Ferrandis in the standings. Ferrandis suffered from poor starts and finished fourth (4-4).
