AMA Supercross leaves Salt Lake City behind where James Stewart earned his 11th win of the season, and the 36th of his career. Stewart became the first rider in Yamaha history to win 11 AMA Supercross class races in a single season while Chad Reed earned his 10th runner-up finish of the season.
This will be the 19th time the gate will drop for an AMA Supercross race in Sam Boyd Stadium and history will be made by either Chad Reed or James Stewart in this season grand finale. Reed or Stewart has won the race in Las Vegas since 2005. Reed won the race 2005 and 2008 while Stewart won in 2006 and 2007. The first race ever held in Las Vegas was March 17, 1990 where Jeff Matiasevich won on a Kawasaki.Anything can happen this weekend, as Stewart is the faster rider with more holeshots and more wins this season but Reed has been more consistent. Trailing by just 6 point, Reed will no doubt be going for the win in order to regain the points in this final round. Stewart will "hang it all out" as you rest assure both will be "all-in" for exciting season conclusion.
