Eli Tomac of team GEICO Honda has been crowned the winner of the 2012 Western Regional Supercross Lites Class Championship. He had an amazing run throughout the series and dominated it from start to end. He dominated the Supercross Lites West Class standings too. Being at the leading position of the points table, he finally clinched the SX Lites West Class title. Tomac’s title victory became certain after his thrilling victory during the Western Regional Supercross Lites Class match at the famous Rice Eccles Stadium of Salt Lake City last Saturday night. It was apparently the 16th round of the 2012 AMA Supercross Series and also the last round of this season before heading towards the Supercross finals at Las Vegas this coming Saturday night.
During the main event of the SX Lites West Class match at Salt Lake City last weekend, Eli Tomac delivered great performance and showed some skillful racing stunts to walk away with the victory and also the championship title. In the main event, Tomac had a good start but was initially lagging behind Jason Anderson of team Rockstar Energy Suzuki. Meanwhile, Anderson had a superb start to his race and gained good speed too. He acquired the Nuclear Cowboyz Holeshot award in no time and cruised ahead to acquire the lead in the race. Anderson was being followed closely by Eli Tomac at the second position. On several occasions, Tomac came very close to Anderson to get past him, but he couldn’t. However, in the 11th lap, Tomac finally managed to overtake Anderson and gain the lead in the race by virtue of some amazing skills and racing talents.
After gaining the lead, Tomac never looked back. He then seemed to be completely untouchable on the race track and cruised towards the victory. Finally, he acquired the checkered flag and also the top position in the podium. This win at Salt Lake City also fetched him the SX Lites West title. He now has 159 points in the SX Lites West standings and has a lead of 27 points over Dean Wilson of team Kawasaki who is residing at the second position with 132 points. Wilson had a great loss to his points tally at Salt Lake City after he suffered a bad crash during the race. He couldn’t recover from the crash and had to leave the match mid-way. At Salt Lake City, the other two riders who joined Tomac on the race podium were Suzuki’s Jason Anderson at the second spot and his teammate, Martin Davalos at the third spot.
