Bench Racing Ammo Roczen V. Tomac V. The Rest

Just one point separates Ken Roczen and Eli Tomac in the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship’s 250 Class, and it’s nearly 60 points back to the third place battle between Marvin Musquin and Blake Baggett. We now see this battle as a two-man fight, but little did we realize it’s actually been this way all along. Ready for some stats on Tomac, Roczen and the rest?

In Monster Energy Supercross’ 250SX West Region, Tomac and Roczen combined to win eight of the nine races and also the East/West Shootout, giving them nine wins out of ten. Only Rockstar Energy Racing’s Jason Anderson took a win away in Salt Lake City, and even that required perhaps the worst night in the professional careers of both Roczen and Tomac.

SX for Roczen and Tomac: 9 wins in 10 rounds.

In the Nationals, Musquin and Baggett have combined for three overall wins in eight rounds, which kind of clouds the view. But take a look at the series on a per-moto basis and you’ll see something incredible. Baggett has one moto win (Budds Creek) and Musquin has one (High Point). That’s it. Tomac and Roczen have combined to win the other 14 out of 16 motos.

Marvin Musquin is one of only three riders to beat Eli Tomac and Ken Roczen in 2013.

Total for Roczen and Tomac: 23 wins in 26 races.

And they’re only getting stronger as the championship picture focuses on them. Roczen and Tomac have finished first and second in the last six motos of this championship (Southwick, RedBud, Washougal). Looks like the numbers are just going to keep climbing higher!
