In his 100th career start, Red Bull KTM's Ryan Dungey won his eighth Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, race of the season in front of 35,241 fans at Sam Boyd Stadium for the 2015 season finale. Red Bull KTM's Marvin Musquin led wire-to-wire en route to his first-ever Dave Coombs Sr. East/West Shootout Championship, marking the sixth time this season that KTM has swept both Main Events.

Dungey led BTO Sports KTM's Justin Brayton and GEICO Honda's Eli Tomac across the Holeshot line to kick off the 450SX Class Main Event. On the opening lap,'s Weston Peick moved into third place.

Out front, Dungey and Tomac traded positions on Lap 1, but on Lap 4 Tomac crashed while in pursuit, still able to remount in second place. Peick and Discount Tire Racing/TwoTwo Motorsports' Chad Reed engaged in a heated battle for third place on Lap 8, but Peick would hold his position and ride to his second podium finish of a year with a third place. Tomac finished second, his 11th podium of the season.

"We [Dungey and Tomac] really pushed the pace out there tonight and went back forth during the early part of the race" said Dungey. "This was a great year; I set a [personal] record for most wins in a season with eight and couldn't be happier."

Musquin, who won the Eastern Regional 250SX Class Championship last week, started the East/West Shootout with the Holeshot Award. GEICO Honda riders RJ Hampshire and Malcolm Stewart followed in second and third, respectively.

Stewart passed Hampshire on the opening lap for second place. Hampshire held down the number three position until Lap 11, when his teammate Matt Bisceglia passed him and secured the final position on the podium. Stewart earned his best Las Vegas finish in second, besting his fifth-place finishes in 2011 and 2014. Musquin went on to dominate for his first victory in Sam Boyd Stadium in his final 250SX Class race.

"It's like a dream come true tonight," said Musquin. "I have never won in Las Vegas before and I used to watch this race back in the day when I was a kid, but tonight it's my turn. To win my very last supercross race on a 250cc [motorcycle] is awesome."

Yamalube/Star Racing/Yamaha's Cooper Webb, who won the Western Regional 250SX Class Championship, missed the Main Event after sustaining an injury during practice. Coming into tonight's race the Eastern and Western Regions were tied in Dave Coombs Sr. East/West Shootout victories, and Musquin's win gave the Eastern Region the edge with the region's 10th win. Musquin closes out his 2015 campaign with seven victories.

HRT Racing's Vicki Golden made history this afternoon by becoming the first female in more than four decades of Monster Energy Supercross to qualify for the "Fast 40" - the riders that transition to the night program from timed qualifying - for tonight's 2015 finale at Sam Boyd Stadium and the 250SX Class' Dave Coombs Sr. East/West Shootout.

Tonight's race concludes the 2015 Monster Energy Supercross season. The first race of the 2016 season will take place on January 9 at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California.

[caption id="attachment_45451" align="alignright" width="200"]Ryan Dungey 2015 AMA Supercross Las Vegas Photo: Simon Cudby[/caption]

Red Bull KTM factory rider Ryan Dungey took an impressive win at the season finale of the Monster Energy Supercross Series, an FIM World Championship, held at Sam Boyd Stadium.

Ryan Dungey was placed in the second 450 Supercross heat where he launched off the line to a great start. He moved quickly into the lead and went on to lead every lap of the heat race to take an easy win and top transfer spot to the main event.

Dungey repeated his remarkable start at the gate drop of the 450SX class main event and was in the lead by the end of the second long straightaway on his KTM 450 SX-F Factory Edition. Although Dungey was pressured early on by Eli Tomac, he never lost the lead and after the first five laps was able to put a gap on Tomac and the rest of the field. He went on to pull a significant lead out front to take another win in his impressive championship winning season.

"This is exactly how you want to end the season," stated Dungey. "I'm very excited to get this win and use this confidence to head into the outdoor season in two weeks."

Marvin Musquin Wins East/West 250 Supercross Shootout

[caption id="attachment_45449" align="alignright" width="300"]Marvin Musquin 2015 AMA Supercross Lites East West Shootout Photo: Simon Cudby[/caption]

Red Bull KTM factory rider and newly crowned East 250 Supercross Champion, Marvin Musquin, took a dominating win in the Las Vegas East/West 250 Supercross Shootout in front of a packed crowd at Sam Boyd Stadium for the season finale. His teammate, Justin Hill, did not finish the event after a heat race injury kept him from competing in the main event.

Justin Hill was in the first heat race which consisted of all West 250 Supercross riders. He got a good jump off the line but was involved in a first turn crash that placed him in last position. He picked up his bike and quickly returned to the track to pick off all spots he could to try to move into the top nine to transfer to the main. Luckily, he was able to speed through the pack and made his way up to 9th on the final lap of the heat to take the last transfer spot from the heat to the main event.

Marvin Musquin was up next in the East 250 Supercross heat. He earned a 2nd place start and moved into the lead by the second corner. Once in the lead he had pulled out to a seven second gap before he had a small tip over in a turn with two laps to go. He briefly lost the lead but was able to make the pass back a few turns later. He continued to charge out front and pulled a few second gap on the field before crossing the checkered flag to take the heat race win.

Unfortunately, Hill did not line up for the main event after an injury from his heat race crash caused him to feel uncomfortable racing the main event. Musquin went to the line with his number one plate and pulled a perfect holeshot on his KTM 250 SX-F Factory Edition. He led the entire race to take a comfortable win and prove that he was the top rider from both coasts, and thus, the winner of the Las Vegas 250 Supercross Shootout.

"I felt comfortable all day today," stated Musquin. "I have a lot of confidence on my bike because I know it is the best one out there and that comes through in how I ride. I'm really excited to take the shootout win tonight and want to extend my thanks to my entire team."

The Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team also earned another honor when Musquin's mechanic, Frank Latham, was awarded the MMI Top Tech award after the 250 main event.

Eli Tomac Closes The 2015 Supercross Season Strong

[caption id="attachment_45447" align="alignright" width="300"]Eli Tomac 2015 AMA Supercross Las Vegas Photo: Simon Cudby[/caption]

The GEICO Honda team closed out the Monster Energy Supercross season in fine fashion Saturday night at Sam Boyd Stadium, getting podium finishes in the 450cc main event by Eli Tomac and in the 250 East/West Shootout by Malcolm Stewart and Matt Bisceglia.

Tomac finished second in the 450 main after being quick all day again. Stewart won his 250 heat race and finished second in the 250 main, with Bisceglia joining him on the podium in third. Teammate R.J. Hampshire had a solid day, too, and finished seventh in the 250 main.

For Tomac, his runner-up capped a terrific season in which he won three times and finished on the podium 11 times, including at the final six races.

[caption id="attachment_45446" align="alignleft" width="300"]Eli Tomac 2015 AMA Supercross Las Vegas Photo: Simon Cudby[/caption]

"The highlight was getting three wins this season," Tomac said. "Being consistent and staying healthy through the whole season was important, too. What a fun year. I've got to say a huge thanks to GEICO Honda and everyone on the team."

Tomac and 450 Supercross champion Ryan Dungey battled in the opening laps after both made good starts, but while Tomac was charging to make a pass, a minor slip put his bike down for a few seconds, allowing Dungey to get away.

"That was a blast, for sure," Tomac said of the 450 main. "It was set up perfectly for a great battle between Ryan and I, but I lost my front end there, unfortunately. At that point I had to settle into second because Ryan was setting such a quick pace."

[caption id="attachment_45445" align="alignright" width="199"]Malcolm Stewart 2015 AMA Supercross Lites East West Shootout Photo: Simon Cudby[/caption]

250 East Series champion Marvin Musquin set a fast pace all season, and Saturday was no exception. Stewart matched Musquin's speed early in the 15-lap main but admitted he got a little winded.

"We still had a good time in Vegas," Stewart said. "We're out here having fun and enjoying ourselves. We won the heat race and that was cool, but in the main event, I'm not going to lie, I got a little bit tired before the halfway point. Props to Marvin, though. He rode a great race and did what he had to do to keep me behind him."

Stewart had four podium finishes this season, including his first career Supercross win in Oakland, Calif., earlier this year.

"Definitely the best moment was Oakland, getting that win and finally getting in the books with my brother," Stewart said. "That's awesome to me. Got to give it to my GEICO Honda team. For me to come in this season with no ride, definitely, God was going it. Thanks to him and to my whole GEICO team."

[caption id="attachment_45444" align="alignleft" width="300"]Matthew Bisceglia 2015 AMA Supercross Lites East West Shootout Photo: Simon Cudby[/caption]

Bisceglia's third-place finish was his best of the season and matched his best career finish, as he was also third at this race last year.

"I just fought and never gave up this year," Bisceglia said. "I had to do that in the main tonight, too. I was leading the heat race, but my front end washed out, so I had to get through the LCQ. I had a good start in the main but got shuffled back in the second corner. I almost went down, but I said to myself, 'I've got a lot of work to do to get on the podium.'

"I rode the rhythm section and the whoops well, and I started clicking off positions. Those were the important parts of the track for me, and I rode well through there, so that was good."

Weston Peick Finishes Season With Second Career 450SX Podium

[caption id="attachment_45442" align="alignright" width="300"]Weston Peick 2015 AMA Supercross Las Vegas Photo: Steve Cox[/caption]

The final AMA Supercross event of the year brought a podium finish for's Weston Peick in the 450SX class.

Race by race, in his first season riding for JGR, Peick has established himself as a contender in the premier 450SX class. In Las Vegas he qualified fourth quickest before earning a podium in his heat race behind rivals Eli Tomac and Chad Reed. Teammate Justin Barcia likewise finished third in his heat race.

Peick then made an excellent start inside the top three in the 20-lap main event behind series champion Ryan Dungey and Eli Tomac. However a brief tip-over left Peick hounded by Reed for much of the event, testing the Yamaha rider's speed and focus. But the bLU cRU rider held on beautifully, taking home his second career AMA 450 Supercross podium in the process.

Despite missing four races with a broken foot early in the season, the podium finish also boosted Peick to a top-10 finish in points.

Cooper Webb missed the finale after spraining an ankle in practice, but fortunately the bLU cRU rider had already locked up the 2015 250 Supercross West championship in April.

Yamalube/Star Racing/Yamaha's Jeremy Martin, who finished third in the 250SX East standings, likewise sat out the shootout after injuring a hand during training prior to the event. Both are expected to be ready for the 2015 AMA Motocross season kickoff in Sacramento, Calif. on Saturday, May 16.

With both Webb and Martin sitting out the Las Vegas event, Aaron Plessinger was the quickest Yamaha YZ250F rider in practice, turning in the seventh fastest qualifying time. He then finished sixth in the 250SX West heat race.

Neither Plessinger nor Alex Martin made good starts in the 15-lap final, with both riders finishing the first lap outside the top 10. Undeterred, they both immediately started moving toward the front, with Plessinger advancing all the way up to fourth with three laps left to go and Martin cracking into the top five on the penultimate lap.

Kawasaki Wraps Up Two Seasons In Las Vegas

Jacob Hayes 2015 Arenacross Las Vegas

It was an exciting weekend in Las Vegas as both the Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM Championship and the Amsoil Arenacross seasons came to a close Saturday in Sin City. At the Southpoint Casino, it was Team Babbitt's Monster Energy/AMSOIL Kawasaki looking to claim its sixth straight Arenacross Championship. Jacob Hayes did all he could, including winning the first of two main events, but came up just short of the title. His teammates Chris Blose and Matt Goerke also pushed hard but came up short in the title chase.

Over at Sam Boyd Stadium Josh Grant put his Discount Tire/TwoTwo Motorsports Kawasaki in the top five in Monster Energy Supercross competition. Chad Reed battled for a podium position early in the 20-lap main event and finished seventh. Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki came into Las Vegas optimistic but unfortunately neither Chris Alldredge nor Joey Savatgy made it to the main event. Alldredge had a crash in practice that forced him sit out for the night while Savatgy qualified fourth fastest but crashed in his heat race and decided to call it a night.

Giving It His All

Jacob Hayes 2015 Arenacross Las Vegas

Hayes came into the Arenacross finale tied for the points lead and felt very confident he could claim Kawasaki's sixth straight title. In the first main event, Hayes didn't get the best start but his persistence paid off as he fought his way to the front and took the lead and eventually the win. But as is often the case in Arenacross racing, the second main event was filled with drama as the championship leaders all went down nearly right out of the starting gate.

Hayes quickly remounted and started making his way forward. As he battled with his championship rival the two came together and the contact and resulting crash damaged Haye's water pump and took him out of the race and the championship.

Finishing Strong

Josh Grant 2015 AMA Supercross Las Vegas

The Discount Tire/TwoTwo Motorsports Kawasaki teammates have been trading top honors each week, which started with both of them qualifying in the top 10. Reed finished runner-up in his heat race while Grant finished second in his semi to advance to the main.

In the 20-lap main event, Reed got off to top-five start on his Kawasaki KX450F and began making moves forward. On Lap 3 Reed moved into fourth place and began a battle for the podium that would last until the final four laps as Reed dropped to seventh. Meanwhile Grant rode consistent laps to score his second top-five finish of the season.

Top Honors

Kyle Chisholm 2015 AMA Supercross Las Vegas

Another Kawasaki duo battling just outside the top 10 was Kyle Chisholm and Nick Wey which carried on all evening. It began with Chisholm qualifying 12th and Wey 13th, sending them to separate heat races where they both finished sixth. Lining up in the semi, it was Wey who took the win with Chisholm on his rear wheel.

In the main event, Chisholm started up in the top 10 while Wey had to battle forward. Wey reeled in the Kawasaki rider and matched his pace but could not find a place to make a pass stick. Chisholm and Wey finished just outside the top 10 in 11th and 12th, respectively.

Kawasaki Proof

Chad Reed 2015 AMA Supercross Las Vegas

In the 450SX main event, Kawasaki had the most market share of any manufacturer on the gate. In addition to the TwoTwo Motorsports Kawasaki teammates, Team Chiz and Mafia Moto Crew Kawasaki's Wey, Kawasaki rider Thomas Ramette from France, Trader's Racing's Tony Archer and Deven Raper all made the main event and showcased the KX450F.

Built Beyond Belief

The Monster Energy Kawasaki semi was on hand in Vegas and in addition to hauling Wil Hahn's KX450F for display, was a full Kawasaki line up of vehicles and accessories as well as the new Kawasaki Ninja H2R. The 300 horsepower, supercharged H2R gathered a crowd all day as fans admired the engineering marvel created by the multiple divisions of Kawasaki Heavy Industries.

The crowd around the Kawasaki display continued to grow by mid-afternoon as the fans awaited the arrival of the King of Supercross, Kawasaki Brand Ambassador Jeremy McGrath who socialized, took photos, and signed autographs for what seemed like the entire pit party.

Push Reset

Nicholas Wey 2015 AMA Supercross Las Vegas

After an up and down supercross season, Monster Energy Kawasaki is anxious for the start of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship at Hangtown on May 16th. Wil Hahn will make his anticipated debut on his KX450F while Adam Cianciarulo will also return to the gate. Both riders are 100-percent and excited to return to racing after injuries that knocked them out of the supercross season.

Suzuki Riders Shine In Las Vegas Supercross Finale

[caption id="attachment_45427" align="alignright" width="300"]Blake Baggett 2015 AMA Supercross Las Vegas Photo: SMAI[/caption]

The 2015 FIM/AMA Supercross season came to a close Saturday in Las Vegas with Vicki Golden making series history and two other Suzuki riders scoring top-10 finishes in front of 35,241 fans at Sam Boyd Stadium.

Suzuki highlights of this weekend's action included:

  • Vicki Golden becoming the first female rider in AMA Supercross history to qualify for the evening program.
  • Blake Baggett ending his highly-successful rookie AMA/FIM Supercross campaign in the top 5.
  • Broc Tickle also closing out the 2015 Supercross season with a top-10 series rankings.

Golden Night In Las Vegas

[caption id="attachment_45428" align="alignright" width="300"]Vicki Golden 2015 AMA Supercross Lites East Las Vegas Photo: SMAI[/caption]

Vicki Golden will forever go down in history as the first female rider to make the evening program at an AMA/FIM Supercross event, and she accomplished the feat on a Suzuki RM-Z250.

Golden, who made her Eastern Regional 250SX Class debut on February 14 at Arlington, Texas' AT&T Stadium, qualified 35th out of 42 riders. Her latest groundbreaking achievement is part of a series of firsts for the sport, which also includes becoming the first female in history to complete Ricky Carmichael's Road to Supercross in AMSOIL Arenacross last season, earning her 250SX Class license to attempt to qualify for a Monster Energy Supercross race. In 2011, Golden became the first female to qualify for an AMSOIL Arenacross Lites Class Main Event.

"This is all so surreal right now," Golden exclaimed. "Last week after East Rutherford I thought it was over. I didn't expect to come here to Vegas and we learned a few days ago that we had the opportunity, so I figured let's go out there and give it one last shot. It's been a rough season and about everything that could go wrong has.

"I recently learned I've been battling mono since November and it's taken about everything I have just to put in one fast lap. I've felt so tired and I haven't been doing any riding during the week. I've just showed up and raced, but this week I put in a little riding once we learned we'd be coming to Vegas and everything worked out. I've accomplished the goal I set out to achieve this season."

Baggett A Supercross Rookie No More

[caption id="attachment_45426" align="alignright" width="300"]Blake Baggett 2015 AMA Supercross Las Vegas Photo: SMAI[/caption]

Blake Baggett ended his highly-successful rookie AMA/FIM Supercross campaign with another strong outing in the Las Vegas finale, scoring sixth on his Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing RM-Z450. It marked his 13th top-10 finish in the series this year and helped him close out the 2015 Supercross season as the fifth-ranked rider, only three points shy of a fourth-place ranking.

Another notable accomplishment for Baggett was the fact that he was one of only four riders who finished all 17 rounds of the 2015 AMA/FIM Supercross Series. Baggett felt he was helped to that record of reliability because he rides the dependable Suzuki RM-Z450.

Baggett reflected on the final night of Supercross 2015 and is already looking forward to the start of the Pro Motocross season, which kicks off with the Hangtown Motocross Classic on May 16th in Sacramento, California.

"Here in Las Vegas I had a few sections that were good and a few sections that were bad," he said. "I got out of here in one piece and finished up fifth on the season. Now I've got one weekend off and we head to the outdoors."

Tickle Finishes Ranked A Solid Eighth In 2015 Supercross

[caption id="attachment_45424" align="alignright" width="300"]Broc Tickle 2015 AMA Supercross Las Vegas Photo: SMAI[/caption]

RCH/Soaring Eagle/Jimmy Johns/Suzuki Factory Racing's Broc Tickle continued to show a fighting spirit with yet another top-10 Supercross finish in Las Vegas. The result put him eighth in the final series standings, this in spite of sitting out a round earlier in the year due to injury and then coming back and racing while still recovering from the injury.

"I wanted to end on a good note and I feel like it was a solid season for me," Tickle said. "Coming back from injury last year I wanted more, but that's a good thing. We always want to get better, that's what we thrive on. I'm looking forward to the outdoors. I'm feeling really good on the bike. I think we're going to go to the outdoors and surprise some people."

Strong Representation For Suzuki In Vegas Finale

In addition to Baggett and Tickle's solid results aboard their powerful and agile Suzuki RM-Z450s in Las Vegas, kudos also go out to Nick Schmidt and Dustin Pipes, who also qualified their RM-Z450s into the Main. AJ Catanzaro also made the 250 East/West Shootout aboard his Suzuki RM-Z250.

Jason Anderson Closes Out Rookie 450SX Season 7th Overall

Zach Osborne Finishes 6th, Zach Bell Finishes 12th, In 250SX East-West Shootout

[caption id="attachment_45422" align="alignright" width="300"]Zach Osborne 2015 AMA Supercross Lites East West Shootout Photo: Simon Cudby[/caption]

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing's Zach Osborne and Zach Bell were pitted against both East and West 250SX riders on Saturday for the 250SX East-West Shootout held at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, the final stop for the 2015 Supercross season.

Zach Osborne got a great start in the 250SX West heat aboard his Husqvarna FC 250 and quickly moved into the lead. He settled into the second-place position where he finished. After getting passed by teammate Zach Bell and moving into third in lap three, he fought back and finished second to transfer directly to the 250SX East-West Shootout. In the Shootout, Osborne got a sixth-place start and briefly moved to eighth before fighting back to sixth by the time the checkered flag came out. He finishes the 2015 season third overall in 250SX West rider point standings.

"Today was good," said Osborne. "My heat race was positive. I felt really good. I just got my first bad start of the season in the main. I had to do a little battling. Honestly, with the way the season has gone, I'm just glad to get out of here healthy before outdoors. It's a great feeling because it's been a tough season for me. I've had a lot of weird mishaps and bad luck, so I'm glad to come out healthy and it gives me a little confidence to end with no crashes and have a decent day. I feel like I could have ended up on the podium but I don't know what happened on the start. Going into outdoors, I feel positive with my bike and feel good with my training."

[caption id="attachment_45421" align="alignleft" width="199"]Zach Bell 2015 AMA Supercross Lites East West Shootout Photo: Simon Cudby[/caption]

Zach Bell returned to the scene after taking some time off to recover from a previous injury. The absence left him well-rested and ready to return to racing. His Husqvarna FC 250 pulled the holeshot in the 250SX West heat and battled with teammate Zach Osborne the remainder of the race before finishing third to transfer directly to the East-West Shootout. In the shootout, Bell got a fifth-place start and moved up to the fourth-place position before going down in the whoops in lap five. He remounted in 20th, and spent the remainder of the race fighting for positions. He put in a hard charge and finished the race twelfth.

"Today was a good day," said Bell. "From what I had a couple weeks ago - 90% collapsed lung, dislocated elbow and torn ligaments in my elbow - this was an overall good day. I was third in the heat and fourth in the main before I went down in the whoops and was dead last. I fought back to twelfth so I'm happy with myself and I wish I could have stayed off the ground. I'm healthy, though, so that's good. I'm excited for outdoors - that's more my style. I'm a little guy and supercross is kind of hard for me so I'm definitely excited for outdoors to come."

[caption id="attachment_45420" align="alignright" width="199"]Jason Anderson 2015 AMA Supercross Las Vegas Photo: Simon Cudby[/caption]

Teammate Jason Anderson was third fastest in 450SX practice, but decided to sit the night out after crashing hard during one of his practice sessions. He finishes his 450 rookie year seventh overall in 450SX rider point standings. He will spend the next two weeks testing and training with his focus on preparing for the upcoming outdoor motocross season.

"I was having a good practice," said Anderson. "I felt really good on the track but came into a corner, slid out and hit the ground pretty hard and decided to call it a night. I'm focusing on outdoors, and have been riding that really well, so I didn't want to take a risk tonight."

Munn Racing's Ben Lamay finished 13th in the 450SX class, and finishes the 2015 season 20th overall in 450SX rider point standings.

Shane McElrath Shows Off New TLD SE Air Racewear In Las Vegas

[caption id="attachment_45419" align="alignright" width="300"]Shane McElrath 2015 AMA Supercross Lites East West Shootout Photo: Jeff Kardas[/caption]

Troy Lee Designs / Lucas Oil / Red Bull / KTM's Shane McElrath set out for the final supercross race of the season in front of the fans inside Sam Boyd Stadium, coming across the finish in ninth. McElrath was showing off the all-new TLD SE Air Racewear, which was a welcomed choice as the highly ventilated gear came in handy with temperatures over 90 degrees.

McElrath was on the gas starting in practice where he qualified third. Lining up on the inside during his heat race, McElrath was going after another good start when another rider went down in front of him going into the first turn. He was quick to remount and able to make it up into qualifying position in seventh.

In the Main Event, the difficult and deteriorating track was hard to pass on and McElrath's mid-pack start made it difficult to make a charge to the front. After starting outside the top 10, McElrath pushed his way to finish the final Main Event in ninth.

[caption id="attachment_45418" align="alignleft" width="300"]Shane McElrath 2015 AMA Supercross Lites East West Shootout Photo: Jeff Kardas[/caption]

"It was a tough night, but I'm happy to not be injured in that crash in the heat," said McElrath. "We wanted to get out of here healthy, and while disappointed with ninth, happy with the season as a whole. I was really pumped on the new gear that I got to wear today. The lightweight SE Air came in handy today in the hot conditions. Can't wait to wear it outdoors."

McElrath's all new [mageProductLink sku="tl30201-2302" title=""]Troy Lee Designs SE Air vented gear[/mageProductLink], as well as more of the 2015 gear sets and the 2015 Moto Helmets, can be found online and at your local TLD retailer.
