Everything you need to know for Saturday's Supercross finale
The final round of the 2016 Monster Energy Supercross takes place this weekend at the Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, where the 250SX East and West Regional class champions will be crowned.
All three classes will be in action, with plenty of points and bragging rights up still up for grabs.
Last weekend in East Rutherford, Ryan Dungey won his third 450SX class title, despite finishing off of the podium at the MetLife Stadium. However, there are still two championships left to be decided, with both champions to be crowned following the 250SX East/West shootout race.
The 250SX riders will be faced with a unique format for this weekend’s events:
Here’s where it gets interesting: The 250SX main event points will be based on the overall position and NOT on the rider’s specific regional position at the end of the main.
LIVE coverage of this weekend’s racing events begins at 10 p.m. ET Saturday night on FS2, then switches to FS1 at 11 p.m. ET. The event will also be simulcast on the FOX Sports Go app.
Ryan Dungey won at Las Vegas last year, and will be hoping to return to victory after his 31-race long podium streak came to an end last weekend at East Rutherford. While both 250SX regional championships are close, both Malcolm Stewart (east) and Cooper Webb (west) come into the finale with the points lead and fresh off of race wins.
