GEICO Honda’s Justin Bogle led from start to finish Saturday night in Toronto to earn his first career Monster Energy Supercross 250SX Class victory.

Bogle, who scored a career-best second-place finish last weekend in Detroit, Mich., one-upped himself this time around with a dominant performance in front of 48,892 fans inside the Rogers Centre. Bogle’s triumph snaps a seven-race win streak put forth by the Pro Circuit Kawasaki squad – dating back to Dean Wilson’s 250SX Class Western Regional victory at Anaheim 3.

McLaren has chimed in on the fuel flow controversy.

After Daniel Ricciardo was disqualified in Melbourne, Red Bull argued that it went its own way with the new fuel consumption rules because FIA’s mandatory sensors were not accurate enough.

However, engine supplier Renault’s rivals Mercedes and Ferrari backed the FIA in the wake of the ruling, while the sensor supplier Gill insisted it has the full support of Formula 1′s governing body.
