Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Eli Tomac has broken through to claim victory at Nashville’s 14th round of the 2019 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship.

The two-time Pro Motocross champion was forced to transfer to the main via the LCQ after suffering a DNF in his heat, overcoming the misfortune to take a stellar 11.644s victory over Blake Baggett (Rocky Mountain ATV/MC KTM).

Points leader Cooper Webb (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing) closed out the podium, while the top five was completed by Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing duo Dean Wilson and Zach Osborne.

The 250SX East division saw points leader Austin Forkner (Pro Circuit Monster Energy Kawasaki) sit out the evening’s proceedings after suffering an injury during practice, leaving the championship wide open.

Martin Davalos (Pro Circuit Monster Energy Kawasaki) capitalised on a clash between Chase Sexton (Geico Honda) and Justin Cooper (Monster Energy Yamalube Yamaha Star Racing) to take his first win of the season, while the pair rebounded from the tangle to finish second and third respectively.

Kyle Peters (JGRMX Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing) finished off the podium fourth, followed by Brandon Hartranft (CycleTrader Rock River Yamaha) in fifth. The AMA Supercross championship heads to Denver next weekend for round 15.
