Bench Racing Ammo: Tomac’s Win StreakThursday, August 22, 2013 | 9:30 AM
Just how impressive is Tomac’s recent win streak? Let’s look at the last ten seasons in the 250 Class to see.
* 2013 Current Moto Streak: 8 Eli Tomac
2012 Longest Moto Streak: 4 Blake Baggett
2011 Longest Moto Streak: 4 Blake Baggett/Dean Wilson
2010 Longest Moto Streak: 4 Trey Canard
2009 Longest Moto Streak: 4 Christophe Pourcel
2008 Longest Moto Streak: 16 Ryan Villopoto
Tomac goes for ten-straight moto wins this weekend.

2007 Longest Moto Streak: 4 Ryan Villopoto (twice)
2006 Longest Moto Streak: 3 Ryan Villopoto/Mike Alessi/Andrew Short
2005 Longest Moto Streak: 3 Broc Hepler/Ivan Tedesco
2004 Longest Moto Streak: 14 James Stewart
2003 Longest Moto Streak: 14 James Stewart
There’s no doubt the 250 Class usually offers up more varied results than the big bike class (we’ve witnessed three perfect seasons on big bikes since 2002 alone, while no one has ever swept every moto on the small bores). Eli’s eight-moto streak is already longer than all but the Villopoto and Stewart streaks, and in fact it’s double anyone else. Plus he’s got a chance for ten this weekend—Eli might be the only one who wishes they could just keep on racing!
