The penultimate round of the Monster Energy Supercross series was held in Salt Lake last evening, and Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto took his sixth win of the year to gain a nine point advantage in the championship heading into the final round at Las Vegas next weekend. Finishing second and third behind Villopoto were Chad Reed (Honda) and Ryan Dungey (Suzuki). James Stewart (Yamaha) crashed during the main event, and finished back in tenth position, virtually eliminating him from championship contention this year.
In the Western Region Lites main event, Eli Tomac (Honda) took his second win of the year ahead of second place Ken Roczen (KTM) and third place Broc Tickle (Kawasaki). Tickle has a narrow two-point advantage over Tomac with one race remaining.
