The Others...Vegas.

I spent the week sick and watching from home, but it'd all come down to Las Vegas. The 17th and final round of the Monster Energy Supercross series and things got real.

This is going to be kept short and sweet since this blog entry is late and everyone knows the outcome by know. Hands down the best ride I've ever seen was put on by Husqvarna's Zach Osborne on his way to a last lap aggressive pass that would land him a $7,500 fine but none the less he is your 250 East Champion. Ryan Dungey played a chess game with Eli Tomac who was slowing the race pace in hopes to win and have the KTM of Dungey finish fourth or worse. This would have given the 450 Championship to Tomac, but the stars weren't aligned for Team Kawasaki and after a few take down attempts by the number 3, Dungey's fourth trumped Tomac's second. Husqvarna's Jason Anderson would get his first win of the season and Dungey would hoist the championship trophy.

Vegas was good to some triple digit guys. Alex Ray, Dakota Tedder, Adam Enticknap and Ronnie Stewart all made the 450 Main Event.
