Drama Intensifies as Supercross comes to a close in Vegas

After coming in second to Eli Tomac in Salt Lake City, Ryan Dungey found himself 3 points down leading into the East Rutherford races. The drama surrounding the 450X Class Championships took a wild turn in front of 60,000 screaming fans in Metlife Stadium.

After winning the opening heat, Dungey took the holeshot in the main event and found himself in position to take back the points lead after Eli Tomac went down in a turn and fell so far back in the pack that Dungey closed the previous 3 point gap and finished with a controversial win over teammate Marvin Musquin.

With the win, Dungey now holds a 9 point lead over Tomac meaning that Dungey only needs to finish 4th or better in Vegas no matter what Tomac does.

Zach Osborne returned to the top of the podium with Dylan Ferrandis and Joey Savatgy on the podium in 2nd and 3rd respectively. After the race, Savatgy was docked 5 positions due to a error in the race meaning that Jordon Smith who had finished 4th was now 3rd and with that, Smith holds a 1-point lead for the east coast series heading into vegas.

All eyes will be on the main event when the gates drop Saturday night as both the 450X and 250x east classes need to be determined that night.
