Century Link Stadium, home to the Seattle Seahawks and Seattle Sounders, was filled Saturday night with 53,927 racing enthusiasts for round 15 of the AMA Supercross series. The Honda Red Riders had a successful night with Eli Tomac landing his Muscle Milk-backed GEICO Honda in fourth and Team Honda Muscle Milk riders Justin Barcia and Trey Canard scoring fifth and sixth respectively.

450 Race

Barcia secured his position in the main event via a second place finish in his heat race on his CFR450R. When the gate dropped on the night's final 20-lap race, Barcia struggled off the line, leaving him 10th after the first turn. For the balance of the race he fought his way forward through the field, ultimately finishing fifth.

In heat one, Canard got a decent jump off the line and was able to sneak to the inside of the first turn, emerging in fourth. On lap five he worked his way into second, which is where he finished, allowing him to move directly into the main. Unfortunately, when the gate dropped for the main Canard was towards the back of the pack heading into the first turn. He spent the remainder of the 20-lap race charging through the field to nab an impressive sixth.

Tomac logged his second best finish of his 450-rookie season with a fourth. "Overall I am pretty satisfied with the night," stated Tomac. "It was a long 20 laps, but I'm getting stronger and stronger each weekend. It was an okay start; I was somewhere around the top seven, then made some early passes and ended up settling in fourth place."

250 Race

Following an intense battle in his heat race, Zach Osborne scored a second-place finish, transferring him directly into the main event. He then launched his GEICO Honda CRF250R off the line to a less-than-desirable start leaving him towards the back of the pack. The remainder of the 20 laps was spent in an admirable charge through the pack, which eventually netted him sixth place.

"The heat race was really good for me. I got off to a decent start and then I had a good battle with Malcolm [Stewart] and then Dean [Wilson] after he crashed," explained Osborne. "In the main event I just blew the start. I was 15th and rode to a mediocre sixth. I really feel like I let one slip away tonight. Being on the podium seemed to be within my reach after the heat race ride, so I am a bit disappointed."
