|Third Straight Podium for Eli Tomac|
Team AMSOIL rookie Eli Tomac is hitting his stride thanks to a fast bike and good starts, but it might be his early season patience that his helping him the most in his inaugural Monster Energy Supercross. Tomac got another great start in Anaheim on Saturday night, putting the young Colorado-native in contention for his first career supercross win. It was an impressive battle between Josh Hansen and Tomac, as both riders took their turns out front. Tomac took the lead from Hansen, only for Hansen to nose his way back into the lead. A regrouped Tomac then delt with rookie Ken Roczen and Brock Tickle for the remainder of the Supercross Lites final. Tomac narrowly beat out Roczen for second, with Tickle just inches behind in fourth. The West Coast Lites riders get a break this weekend as the Houston round kicks off the East Region Lites campaign this Saturday. Until then, we'll see you at the races, Team AMSOIL
Tomac Delivers First Career Win in San Diego
Team AMSOIL rider Eli Tomac, of Cortez, Colo., captured his first career Monster Energy Supercross victory in the Western Regional Supercross Lites class in a rainy San Diego over the weekend. As the gates dropped on the Supercross Lites class main event, Tomac grabbed the holeshot and never looked back, leading wire-to-wire with a convincing win. ?The first five laps I just put my head down and pulled away. It was kind of crazy,? said Tomac, who won by more than 10 seconds. ?The track was really tricky and slippery. I got a little nervous out (front), but overall it was really good. I?ve learned a lot this season and I?ve gotten a lot better in recent weeks.? The win moved Tomac closer to the overall points lead as he now sits third overall. Tomac will have to wait a few weeks before racing again as the series heads to Atlanta for round two of the East Coast Lites championship this Saturday. Until then, we'll see you at the races.
Martin and Malinoski Ride High in Salt Lake City
The AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series brought its traveling show back to the mountains of Utah with a tour stop in Salt Lake City on Saturday. Inside of Rio Tinto Stadium, the home of the MLS champions Salt Lake Real, Team AMSOIL iders Ross Martin and Robbie Malinoski proved once again they are championship contenders in the Pro classes this season. In Pro Super Stock, Martin used his smooth racing style to get to the front of the action. As is the custom this season, he would once again battle with Tucker Hibbert for the win. Martin just missed his first win of the year, but finished second to Hibbert. Malinoski also ran a strong race and finished fourth. In the AMSOIL Pro Open final, Martin literally got stuck on the start as the skis of his Polaris were tangled up with another sled. By the time the two machines were seperated, Martin was a lap down. Malinoski, meanwhile, led for much of the final that went down to the wire. Malinoski finished third for his first podium of the year. Up next for both both riders is the AMSOIL World Championship Snowmobile Derby in Eagle River, Wis. this weekend. Racing starts on Thursday. Round three of the ACSS will air on Versus Sunday, January 23 at 2:00 p.m. CST. Until then, we'll see you at the races, Team AMSOIL

Actually, it?s our dream," said Pegram. "My parents have been helping me race motorcycles since I was a kid and they?re still here at every race working on the crew. My mechanics are the best and are so committed to this team. They do as much if not more than teams who have twice the manpower. We even have sponsors that after writing the check, help out on the weekends working in the pits. It?s definitely a family effort and we?re real proud of what we have accomplished going up against the factory teams. It?s not easy but all of us are chasing our dream.?

Barcia Wins East Coast Supercross Opener
With Monster Energy Supercross in Houston, Team AMSOIL rider Justin Barcia won a 15-lap duel with Dean Wilson at Reliant Stadium on Saturday night to put his GEICO/AMSOIL/Honda at the top of the podium for the first time this season "How was that race to watch?" Barcia asked after the victory. "It must've been awesome because it was so intense to race in." As glorious as Barcia's night was, the rest of the evening was bittersweet for the GEICO squad. Supercross rider Kevin Windham got the holeshot in his main and led 11 laps before suffering a cartwheeling crash and finished 19th. GEICO Honda's other Lites rider, Blake Wharton, was run off the track while in third place in the Main, but recovered to finish the race sixth. For Barcia it was a grand way to start the season following a 2010 season that had a lot of ups and downs. "The bike was putting the power to the ground," Barcia said. "It was such an intense battle. When I was riding I was saying, 'Woah this is gnarly.' We had to watch our back every corner because we didn't know what each other was going to do. It was crazy." The night was shaping up to be just as stellar for Windham. In the main, he put down a solid start, led for 11 laps, and had as much as a 4.5-second lead over second place (and eventual winner) Trey Canard before disaster struck. Windham was just past the finish line on lap 12 and had just cleared a small jump when he landed cross-ways in a rut on the track. Bike and rider cartwheeled from there with the bike eventually landing on top of a stunned Windham once it all came to a stop. The 17-year veteran was roughed up and suffered a slight concussion from the impact, but had no broken bones. The Monster Energy Supercross Series goes back to the West Coast for a week with a trip to San Diego's Qualcomm Stadium on Feb. 19. Lites West riders Eli Tomac and Jimmy DeCotis will resume their seasons at that venue. Barcia and Wharton won't race again until the Atlanta stop on Feb. 26. Until then, we'll see you at the races, Team AMSOIL

Tomac Continues Podium Streak in Oakland
Photo courtesy Garth Milan/Racer X Rookie GEICO/AMSOIL/Honda rider Eli Tomac took advantage of a strong start and avoided disaster to land on the podium for the second weekend in row in the Supercross Lites West race Saturday night at the inaugural Monster Energy Supercross event at Oakland Coliseum. "I was very satisfied to get back on the podium," Tomac said following this third place finish. "Hopefully next weekend it'll all be put it all together and earn my first win. Tomac's teammates were also able to finish in the top 10 with Kevin Windham seventh in the Supercross main event and Jimmy DeCotis crossing the finish eighth in the Lites West main. Windham, the lone Team AMSOIL rider in the 450cc class, raced to a seventh place finish during the fourth round of the 2011 Monster Energy Supercross series. "I need to keep pushing myself," Windham said, "but there's a thin line between pushing hard enough to win and pushing so hard that you're going to beat yourself by crashing and not finishing. I've got to figure out that balance." The next stop on the 2011 Monster Energy Supercross series will be a Feb. 5 return to Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif., site of the season opener.

Check in on us at Beach Street. Or Destination Daytona. Or the Daytona International Speedway. Either way, enjoy the warmer weather and safe riding. Until then, we'll see you at the races.

Supercross Report From Phoenix
"Racer X Films: Phoenix, Tour of the Pits - Racer X Online" GEICO/Honda/AMSOIL rider Kevin Windham had big plans for the second stop of the 2011 Monster Energy Supercross in Phoenix. Unfortunately for Windham things don't always go as planned. "I was having a great race," Windham said. "My GEICO Honda was running great. I had a great start but then I got tangled up." The veteran rider, who is competing in his 17th season, had his 450cc machine off to a strong start in the main event but a crash during lap 12 brought his hopes of winning the race to an end. "I thought the guy was going to zig, but he zagged," Windham said of the slower lapped traffic he encountered. "I was already in the air and there was nothing I could do about it at that point. It broke the front brake and bent the handlebars of my Honda and that was it for me." Windham is still hoping to be a major player for the 2011 season and isn't going to let his 19th-place finish in Phoenix ruin his goal of winning the championship. "That's racing," Windam said, "or at least that's what they tell me. It sure doesn't make it any easier. Tonight was tough but we're going to move on next weekend to LA and hopefully make up for it." Windham's teammate Eli Tomac ran a very competitive race in the 250cc Lites class, working hard to earn his fifth-place finish. "Qualifying went really well," Tomac said. "The top of the pack was really tight, and it showed during the main event too." Tomac's AMSOIL backed teammate was as far back as 11th during the main event but the Supercross rookie was not about to settle for that. He kicked it into high gear and earned every spot on his way up to fifth. "Unfortunately my start hindered my performance once again," Tomac said. "I definitely know I have more endurance than most of those guys because in the end, when it counted the most, I came on strong." The rookie is beginning to feel comfortable in the Lites class, and can't wait for the next race to continue improving. "I feel like I'm totally used to Supercross now," said Tomac, who turned pro last year in the outdoor portion of the season. "No more rookie bugs. I'm ready to come out swinging next weekend." Replacement rider Jimmy DeCotis' made his debut with the GEICO team at Chase Field and his first race with the team is one that has got everyone in the Lites class looking his way. "I rode a little tight early in the day," DeCotis said, "but I rode really well in the main, and that's where it really counts. I just have to work on my endurance a little more and we'll be set." Riding for the injured Wil Hahn, DeCotis earned a seventh-place finish on his 250cc Honda, proving he's not just a replacement rider, he's here to compete. "I have a great team behind me right now," DeCotis said. "It's going good. We're just going to build on this. I did what I wanted to do and can't wait to get back out here again next race." The next stop for the Monster Energy Supercross Series is next Saturday at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. The event will air on CBS this Sunday. Until then, we'll see you at the races, Team AMSOIL
