Moto #1 – Notes:
A descent start in Moto 1  helped Tommy come back to racing form. Staying in the top 10 all moto, Tommy worked his way to 7th position by the checkered flag. A good solid finish since being off for several rounds. Between the motos Tommy’s face started to swell to the point that he could not see. He was unable to calm down the allergic reaction during the short break and was forced to miss the second moto.

Overall – Notes:
Tommy finished 11th overall without racing the second moto. If he could have raced and finished the second moto in the top 10, his overall finish would have been much higher and he would have scored more points. Current point standings, Tommy is in 18th place which is not too bad after missing 4 rounds. He needs to finish all the remaining 10 motos to get back in the top 10 by the season finale in Lake Elsinore.
