Slawdictions for Thunder Valley: Tomac Shines at Home

NONE of this would be possible without the folks at FLY Racing, who have stepped in to support Slaw and #slawnation couldn’t be happier. Visit and support those who support Slaw. 

Following a nearly 98 percent pick rate over Monster Energy AMA Supercross, I’m here to bring you the most flame, fire, fuego, feu, predictions for the ENTIRE Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship.

Hot takes, bold predictions, you name it, Slaw’s got it.

As always, we will first review my picks from Hangtown….

Prediction | Mosiman Podiums

Mos Dog was pretty impressive at the opener, especially in the second moto where he got fourth. And guess what? Dude is literally from NorCal! Yep and I love him for an overall podium this weekend.

He won a moto! The first of his career! That’s a win for Slaw and #slawnation.

Slawdiction: 6 out of 10.

Prediction | Jett Wins Again

Get those ear plugs out, doggies! The Jett does it again!

Umm… the 250 Class has a Jett problem on their hands. This was Jett between motos and he still won the overall. Yep!

Slawdiction: 10 out of 10.

Prediction | Hammaker Grabs a Moto Podium

For the sake of Mitch Payton’s sanity, this team really needs something good to happen at Hangtown. The speed was certainly there for Seth Hammaker at the opener, but coming off a big injury in supercross, the fitness was a bit off. Not this weekend. Hammaker saves Mitch and gets a moto podium.

Poor Mitch! And Shimoda threw away what could have been a win! Someone get Mitch a 12-pack of Coors ASAP.

Slawdiction: 0 out of 10.

Prediction | Roczen Wins!

Dude, Ken ain’t playing around this year. He’s determined to get back to the top. Did you see his IG caption yesterday?

“I ll be there every damn weekend wether you like it or not! Like a little shit dog biting your ankles that doesn’t let go!”

Also, HAVE YOU SEEN HIS MULLET? Mullet power is alive this weekend and he wins!

The Kentucky waterfall, the Tennessee top hat, the Mississippi mud flap, whatever you want to call it, Ken’s mull dog did not give him the power for the W. I apologize.

Slawdiction: 0 out of 10.

Prediction | Crime Dog Jeff Simpson Takes Over Vurb Twitter and Pisses At Least 10 People Off

We have lost our minds. We are letting the Crime Dog himself Jeff Simpson take over on Twitter for the motos on Saturday. We will probably regret this.

Crime Dog did okay and didn’t get us sued. So I’ll take the L here.

Slawdiction: 0 out of 10.

On to Thunder Valley, the Crown Jewel of the series….

Tomac at Home

After a quiet fourth at the opening round, Eli was back doing Eli stuff, holding off Chase Sexton in the second moto to grab his first moto win of the season. We head to Thunder Valley, his home track and yeah, I got Eli all day. LEAD SLAW LOCK OF THE WEEK.

Kitchen Gets a Start and Snags a Top Five Overall

If you just looked at the results, you wouldn’t think Levi Kitchen has been super good through two rounds. But he has. He just can’t get a damn start. Pretty sure he’s starting like 35th every moto (don’t quote me on that). The Star rocket ships at elevation this week change all that. Kitchen grabs a start in at least one moto and snags a top five overall or better.

People Get Mad at the TV Coverage


Jett Wins Again

Bold, I know!

Cairoli Gets Another Holeshot and Throws a Fatty Whip

Okay, this probably won’t happen, but for the love of everything awesome, please let it.
