Highlights: 2020 WPS/FLY Racing Thunder Valley National

Sunday, October 4, 2020 | 5:30 PM

As expected, the eighth and penultimate round of the 2020 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship was brimming with intensity as the title fights in both the 450 Class and 250 Class move one step closer to completion. Perfect conditions and the high altitude of Thunder Valley Motocross Park made for an action-packed afternoon of racing at the WPS/FLY Racing Thunder Valley National.

While his quest for a fourth consecutive 450 Class title has been filled with challenges, reigning three-time champion Eli Tomac always brings his best whenever he has the chance to race in front of the home Colorado crowd. The Monster Energy Kawasaki rider entered the day on the verge of being mathematically eliminated from title contention, but he kept his hopes alive with a motivated performance that saw Tomac break a tie for the overall win with teammate Adam Cianciarulo by capturing a second-moto victory that put him atop the results sheet.

In the 250 Class it was a long overdue triumph for Monster Energy/Star/Yamaha Racing's Justin Cooper, who outlasted both championship contenders, teammate Dylan Ferrandis and GEICO Honda's Jeremy Martin, to prevail with his first win of the season and the second win of his career.
