Corona, CA (June 18, 2018) – Muddy Creek Raceway in Blountville, TN will host Round 5 of the 2018 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Series on Saturday, June 23. MAVTV will again Telecast "live" both opening motos (450 & 250 classes) starting at 1:00pm ET.
Reigning 450cc series champion, Eli Tomac of Cortex, CO barely squeezed out an overall victory in Round 4, and will be trying to extend his winning ways over Frenchman Marvin Musquin and Greenville, FL's, Justin Barcia.
The point spread in the 450 class shows Tomac with 197, Musquin at 169, and Barcia at 140, with a total of 50 points up for grabs (25 for each moto). Muddy Creek is considered a highly technical track, where riders will spend almost as much time in the air as on the ground.
In the 250 class, there’s a real horse race for first place in the 2018 points chase that sees a scant 20-point gap between leader Aaron Plessinger and Jeremy Martin (171-151). Plessinger hails from Hamilton, OH and Martin calls Milville, MN home. And ... just to keep both riders honest, Jeremy’s brother, Alex is right in the leading pair’s slipstream only 10 points behind.
