MCELRATH SHOCKS AT BUDDS CREEK

In an incredible turn of events, Shane McElrath dominated the motos today in the 250 class at round 11 of the 2019 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship. After not finishing on the podium in any other moto so far this summer and not winning a moto since Washougal last year, McElrath pulled off an extraordinary 1-1 performance at Budds Creek. Two great starts put him at the front of the pack in both motos and from there he was able to put together his perfect moto scores. Adam Cianciarulo salvaged a second overall for the day going 2-5 and Justin Cooper rounded out the overall podium with his 6-2 moto scores. Here’s how the rest of the 250 class overall ended up for the day:  (for extended coverage of the 2019 Budds Creek National MX, click here)

250 Moto One

Monster Energy/Star Racing/Yamaha rider Ty Masterpool kicked the motos off today by grabbing the holeshot in 250 moto one and even stayed in the lead for a few laps. Shane McElrath found himself up front with a good start, battling Masterpool for the lead and eventually overtaking the number one spot. Adam Cianciarulo had a good start, also, but made a mistake while fighting for the top few positions and fell back a ways where he would battle with Michael Mosiman for a bit. Shane McElrath held on for his first moto win in over a year with an almost nine second lead over Adam Cianciarulo in second and RJ Hampshire in third. Here’s how the rest of the 250 class riders ended up in moto one:

250 Moto Two

Shane McElrath carried his momentum form moto one into moto two with him as he took the second moto holeshot, but was quickly passed by Monster Energy/Star Racing/Yamaha’s Mitchell Oldenburg. Oldenburg carried the lead for the first couple of laps, but McElrath made his way back by and began building a gap over the rest of the field. The rest of the order seemed flipped from the first moto, with Adam Cianciarulo and Dylan Ferrandis both starting a ways back and guys like Alex Martin, Justin Cooper, Jett Lawrence and Jo Shimoda filled the top ten early on. McElrath continued on to his second moto win of the day, followed by Justin Cooper in second and Alex Martin in third. Here’s how the rest of the 250 field finished the second moto at Budds Creek:
