After grabbing the top spot on Lap 7, Dean Wilson appeared to be well on his way to claiming the victory. However, his Kawasaki stalled on the final lap, allowing Anderson to sneak by for the lead and eventual win.

There was high drama to open the action Saturday at the 43rd annual Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Collector Car auction, as a Cessna scout plane and a military truck raised $1 million for the Armed Forces Foundation.

AFF President Patricia Driscoll delivered an impassioned introduction about the charity’s work and the bidding quickly hit $750,000 before the hammer fell. Other auction attendees contributed an additional $250,000 bringing the total raised to $1 million.

Ryan Villopoto has won plenty of races in his storied career – including three championships – but he had never won a race at Chase Field in Phoenix, Ariz.

The Kawasaki ace changed that Saturday by winning the 20-lap feature in front of a near sellout crowd of 49,834.

Villopoto overcame a slow start – which had him buried as far back as ninth – to lead the final seven laps en route to his 35th career Monster Energy Supercross victory.
