The Others...Tennessee

Leading in to round five of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championships the talk was rain. Severe weather threatened Tennessee and looked to make Muddy Creek Raceway live up to its name.

With early morning rain, qualifying would start out wet but the clouds would break and after some time on the track, lap times would drop. Jeremy Martin put his Geico Honda atop the 250 class with a 1:52.311 while Husqvarna's Jason Anderson threw down the fastest lap of the day with a 1:51.030 in the 450 field.

Race action was prime. The dirt was that of chocolate cake and the tracked worked up to perfect racing conditions. Star Yamaha's Aaron Plessinger came out with a holeshot and win moto one performance and a second in moto two would secure the overall win. Zach Osborne put his Husky out front in moto two and his 5-1 would end his day second overall. Austin Forkner was consistent with 3-3 scores for third overall.

I feel like the 450 class has a group of guys who are geeked up at the chance to win motos with the absence of Ryan Dungey and some struggles of Eli Tomac. Tomac came out to show he is still a championship favorite by claiming the overall with 2-1 scores. Jason Anderson won moto one and would go on to finish second overall. Blake Baggett's 3-3 scores aren't what he'd call a good day and although good enough for third overall, his rides were very impressive. The number 4 went from 39th to 3rd in moto two to protect his points lead.

Rochester, Minnesota's Henry Miller took the number 81 to 16th overall after he backed up his moto one struggles with a 13th in moto two. Watch for the Triggr Racing rider to to be a constant inside that top 15.
