Slawdictions for Atlanta 1: Putting Faith in Tomac

I, being the gracious person I am, have already reviewed my predictions following Arlington 3. But that was like five months ago and I’m sure you doggies have been knee deep in claws and have forgotten about my fire picks. SO, I have gone through the laborious effort of copy and pasting my previous article. You’re welcome.

If you forgot, this blazing column is brought to you by the fine people at FLY Racing, who have stepped in to support Slaw and #slawnation couldn’t be happier. Visit and support those who support Slaw. 


Barcia wins, if… He gets a start. BamBam “Bigelow” has been super good this year. A whole new rider. He hasn’t won since the opener, but if he holeshots tomorrow, I’m calling a win.

Did Barcia get the start? No, I don’t think so. Did he look great? Yes he did. Would he have won with a holeshot? Probably.

Slawdiction: Incomplete


See above. Slaw ain’t got a clue what was going on with Mr. Fried earlier this year (Mr. Fried don’t talk with media much), but he’s a whole new rider these last few weeks. Podium this weekend, boys.

I didn’t really see much of Mr. Fried, but he got another top five, which is solid. Not what Slaw predicted, so I’ll take an L here.

Slawdiction: 0 out of 10.


Talk about a rider that has gone through a lot the last few years, but Deano is quietly putting a solid season together. That continues this weekend with a second top in a row.

Slawdiction: 14 out of 10.


Jett’s bro (hat tip to Ralph) has been killing it. There were serious questions about if he could rider supercross. Not anymore. He’s on fire and he keeps the points lead after A3.

Hunter went all Peter Parker on the damn Steve Matthes Memorial Nets and was lucky to survive. He still got a top 5, though. Damn tough bloke right there.

Slawdiction: 3 out of 10.


Call me crazy, but I like the A Ray this weekend.

Hot damn, what I tell ya, doggies. A Ray got his revenge on his mate Cade Clason and now we have a showdown in ATL coming up. Beef, it’s whats for dinner.

Slawdiction: 19 out of 10.

Well, now that we’ve wrapped that up, let’s move on to Atlanta 1.

Tomac Wins

Yes, I understand this isn’t Daytona. Different dirt, more of a typical supercross, blah blah. Slaw doesn’t care about any of that. Eli Tomac wins the first Atlanta. Stamp it!

Kenny Closes the Gap

With Slaw’s predictions typically 99 percent accurate, that means Kenny won’t win on Saturday. But that doesn’t mean he can’t pick up points on Webb. This break has done more for Roczen than anyone ISHO (In Slaw’s Honest Opinion) and I think he finishes second behind Tomac.

Barcia Helps Ken with Points

Yep, that’s right, Slaw is going way out on a hot dog and picking Webb to finish off the podium. I think he gets fourth. Barcia takes third and Kenny closes the gap with four rounds to go.

Cooper, Not Webb, Wins

That’s right, I think A Cooper wins this weekend, just not Cooper Webb. Justin Cooper goest back-to-back to extend his 250SX West Region points lead. LEAD. SLAW. LOCK. OF THE. WEEK.

Schock The World

Coty Schock has not gotten enough credit this year. Dude is NINTH in points for goodness sakes. With that said he only has one top 10 finish this year. That changes this weekend. He slides back into the top 10 for a second time this year.
