A six-rider battle ensued with Brayton, Dungey, Roczen, Barcia, Villopoto, and Stewart all within just a few seconds of one another.

Upon Lap 7, Barcia and Roczen made contact while battling for the purpose of third, sending Roczen to the ground. Villopoto pressured Barcia shortly thereafter and made the pass for the purpose of third.

Upon Lap 13, Villopoto passed Brayton and fended off a past due charge to win in Phoenix arizona for the first time in the 450SX Class.

“Justin was riding the hell of a race, ” stated Villopoto. “I have to give it to him, he made it tough. I didn’t get the start I wanted because the (starting) gate was slippery, but I simply needed to be patient. The Phoenix (track) gets really slick so I had to take my time and make sure my passes stuck. ”

Brayton’s runner-up effort linked his career-best finish, which came in Toronto in 2012.

“This feels so good, ” Brayton announced. “The new Yamaha is incredible. We did our homework this year. It’s been a lot of hard work, but being up [on the podium] pays off. I was trying to pay attention to the thing that was going on behind me but still appearance ahead. I did all I could to stay up front, but Ryan (Villopoto) obtained by me. ”

Dungey finished third, giving him back-to-back podium results.

“That was a good opportunity to obtain a win, ” said Dungey. “I kept making mistakes. I could not get through the whoops, but overall it was a good ride. The monitor was super slippery and it captured us off guard but we still put in on the box. ”

With his win, the particular 35th of his career, Villopoto moves into the 450SX Class points lead. He holds a one-point advantage over Dungey.

MyPlash/Metal Mulisha/Star Racing Yamaha’s Cooper Webb raced to the Nuclear Cowboyz Holeshot Award to start the Western Regional 250SX Class Main Event.

Seely and Anderson opened a comfortable lead on the industry, with Seely extending his benefit over Anderson for most of the 15-lap Main Event. As the leaders approached lappers in the late stages, Anderson reduced his deficit to mere bike lengths. On the final lap, Seely made a slight mistake, which permitted Anderson to challenge for the lead, making the pass with in regards to a half lap remaining.

“I was out for redemption tonight, ” said Anderson, who failed to qualify for the Main Event in Phoenix arizona the year prior. “I got a good start on my KTM, like I have been all season. I don’t plan on those last-lap passes, but it was there and I needed to take it. My goal is to keep control of the red number plate (signifying the points leader) so I’ll do whatever it takes to do that. I really want it. ”

“I’m bummed, ” said Seely. “I’ve been battling stomach issues all 7 days, so was struggling with that. I actually felt (my stomach) tighten up past due in the race and I just made a mistake and Jason got me personally again. ”

GEICO Honda’s Zach Osborne and Creature Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Dean Wilson fought for the third position for the almost all the Main Event, with Osborne ultimately getting the edge to grab his second podium finish of the year.
