Eli Tomac is now the all-time podium leader breaking a tie he had with Ricky Carmichael (99-98).

Monster Energy Yamaha Star Racing’s Eli Tomac took his first win of the season, and his first since returning from his 2023 Achilles injury, with 1-1-1 Race scores at the St. Louis Triple Crown Supercross. With the win at Round 12, Tomac became the sixth different rider to win in this highly competitive season.

Monster Energy Yamaha Star Racing’s Cooper Webb earned second overall with (5-6-2) Race finishes inside The Dome at America’s Center. With the finish Webb captured the championship-within-a-championship 3-Round Triple Crown title. In the race format that combines the finishes from three separate Races, Team Honda HRC’s Hunter Lawrence earned his career-first 450SX Class podium with (8-2-4) Race finishes. The unpredictability of the Triple Crown format showed a few new wrinkles in St. Louis with five riders getting docked positions in Race 2 due to red cross flag infractions. Also, big crash in Race 3, when Team Honda HRC’s Jett Lawrence was t-boned, caused a big change in the point standings. Cooper Webb now trails Jett Lawrence now by only eight points.

The Western Regional 250SX Class held its seventh round and Levi Kitchen followed up his previous round’s win with an impressive victory in St. Louis. Team Honda HRC’s Jo Shimoda fought his way to a second-place overall result with 2-3-3 Race finishes. Monster Energy Yamaha Star Racing’s Jordon Smith used 3-2-4 Race finishes to capture the final spot on the podium.

Now Kitchen extended his points lead to 15 over RJ Hampshire, who finished 4th overall via 4-4-2.
