450 SUPERCROSS POINT STANDING (ROUND 5 OF 17)
The point standings will stay the same after the Oakland Supercross, but the numbers are changing as Eli Tomac and Cooper Webb both gained ground on Ken Roczen by finishing in front of him. Ken battled hard with Eli Tomac for the win and he wasn’t far off of Eli at the finish, but a determined and fast Cooper Webb was on a mission and he pulled up close to Ken in the final corners of the last lap. Cooper and Ken were side-by-side going into the final turn and Cooper dove underneath Ken, slammed into him and took the position and took second place. It was an awesome race to watch and the fans were going crazy on the last lap. Heading into San Deigo, Ken Roczen still has the points lead, but it’s down from eight to three points now.
250 WEST COAST POINT STANDINGS AFTER 5 ROUNDS
Coming into Oakland, Justin Cooper had the points lead in the 250 class. But after a rough night in Glendale at round four, and a third place in Oakland, Cooper’s teammate, Dylan Ferrandis has taken over the points lead. Dylan looked strong all day in Oakland, he passed his way up to the front on the first few laps and eventually found himself stalking Austin Forkner for the lead. Austin got caught up with some lapped riders and Dylan was able to gain on Austin and come up the inside of him to take over the lead. Now Dylan Ferrandis has a two-point lead over Justin Cooper and Austin Forkner sits only ten points behind Ferrandis in third.
