After crashing several times in practice and again in his heat, Villopoto advanced out of Semi 2 and went on to dominate the 20-lap 450SX Main Event. The three-time reigning champ moved into the lead on the opening lap and was unchallenged for the remainder of the race, ultimately beating Justin Barcia by 13.7 seconds.Houston, James Stewart, Justin Barcia, Ken Roczen, Ryan Dungey, Ryan Villopoto, Supercross, Video
Jason Anderson made a flawless return to action Saturday night, claiming his fourth Monster Energy Supercross win of 2014 as the Western Regional 250SX Class Championship resumed in Houston, Texas.
The Rockstar Energy KTM rider jumped out to an early lead, picked his way through lapped riders and held off a hard-charging Dean Wilson to pick up the victory in front of 49,759 fans inside NRG Stadium.Cole Seely, Dean Wilson, Houston, Jason Anderson, Supercross, Video
Practice has wrapped up inside Houston’s NRG Stadium and some great dirt combined with a fast-yet-technical layout has set the tone for what will be a dramatic night of competition. While Ryan Villopoto sits well in control of his own destiny atop the 450SX Class standings, any mistake could have major consequences as several of his rivals can attest. The 250SX West Region is also back in action as Jason Anderson and Cole Seely prepare to resume their title fight.
FOX Sports 1 will air all the action from Houston live, beginning at 8:30 p.m. ET with Ralph Sheheen, Jeff Emig, Jeremy McGrath and Jenny Taft. Here are the storylines to watch out for when the gate drops.Cole Seely, Dean Wilson, Houston, James Stewart, Jason Anderson, Ryan Dungey, Ryan Villopoto, Supercross
James Stewart maintained his spot as the hottest rider in Monster Energy Supercross by claiming his third consecutive victory in St. Louis and his fifth of the 2014 season. While his surge may be too little too late in terms of the championship, it’s been fun to see some vintage Stewart do what only he can out on the track. His streak is the reason why he sits atop The Power Rankings.
