Spoiler Alert: 2012 AMA Supercross results from Sam Boyd Stadium, Las Vegas, listed below

The 2012 AMA Supercross Championship concluded Saturday evening at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas.

And before a sold-out crowd of 39,500 spectators, Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey took his fourth win of 2012. When the 20-lap event was complete, the SX-F 450 rider would take the win by over eight seconds ahead of JGRMX/Toyota Yamaha’s Davi Millsaps and Team Honda Muscle Milk’s Justin Brayton.

Taking the Nuclear Cowboyz Holeshot was MotoConcept Suzuki’s Mike Alessi, who was followed closely by Dungey. But on the third corner, Dungey made an inside pass on Alessi for the lead, and went on to lead the rest of the race. At one point, Dungey had a 15-second lead over the field.

Behind, Yoshimura Suzuki’s Brett Metcalfe took second from Alessi. And on lap three, Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Jake Weimer also made a pass on Alessi for third. Weimer than passed Alessi on the sixth lap, and got into second. Meanwhile Millsaps charged through the field, getting into second on the 10th lap. He remained there to finish second. Brayton also charged through the field to take the final podium position.

As for Dungey, who won last week’s round in Salt Lake City, his team reports he’s 100-percent fit now following his recent shoulder surgery.

Ryan Dungey (Red Bull KTM SX-F 450) says: “It feels great to end the season with two wins. This was a tough season for me. I am glad to end it on a positive note. I am so happy to be a part of the Red Bull/KTM Team and am grateful for all their support. We are turning our focus to outdoors now with a goal of winning the championship.”

Dungey will now return to California where he will train for outdoors over the next two weeks before heading to Sacramento, Calif., for the opening round of the AMA Motocross Series on May 19, 2012.

After leading wire-to-wire, GEICO Honda’s Justin Barcia won the final stop of the Eastern Regional Supercross Lites Class Championship. Barcia’s teammate Eli Tomac also led all 15 laps of the Western Regional Supercross Lites Class Main Event, winning his fifth race of the season, Feld Motor Sports reports.

Barcia capped off his championship-winning Eastern Regional Supercross Lites Class season by winning the Nuclear Cowboyz Holeshot Award before leading all 15 laps of the Main Event en route to his sixth victory of the season. Barcia clinched the championship earlier this year at the New Orleans stop.

Behind Barcia, Red Bull KTM’s Ken Roczen assumed the second-place position with Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Blake Baggett in tow, where they would finish.

Feld Motor Sports says following Barcia’s win, he made the announcement that he will ride for the Team Honda Muscle Milk squad next year, and the first time he will race for the new team will be at the Monster Energy Cup at Sam Boyd Stadium on Oct. 20.

Justin Barcia (GEICO Honda CRF250R Supercross) says: “This is a dream come true, and I am looking forward to racing for Team Honda Muscle Milk. I am happy to close out the season with a win; the track was difficult for me out there, but I was able to keep it together.”

Tomac opened the Western Regional Supercross Lites Class Main Event by placing his GEICO Honda across the Nuclear Cowboyz Holeshot line with Rockstar Energy Racing Suzuki’s Martin Davalos and his teammate Jason Anderson following in second and third, respectively, Feld Motor Sports says.

On Lap 3, Anderson moved into third place, passing Davalos, but moments later made a mistake that allowed Davalos to take back second place and Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Dean Wilson to move into third. Wilson passed Davalos on Lap 5 to take over the number-two position. GIECO Honda’s Wil Hahn moved around Davalos on Lap 11. Wilson finished second and Hahn finished third.

Eli Tomac (GEICO Honda CRF250R Supercross) says: “This shows that GEICO Honda has done a great job this year with us winning both Supercross Lites Class titles and Wil [Hahn] finishing third tonight.”

The dominant performance by the GEICO Honda team set the stage for the 10 lap Dave Coombs Sr. East/West Shootout. Once again, Barcia won the Nuclear Cowboyz Holeshot Award, and he was trailed by Davalos and Tomac.

On Lap 3 Davalos took advantage of a mistake by Barcia to move into the lead. Two laps later, both Barcia and Tomac moved around Davalos. Barcia was able to hold off the hard charging Tomac for the win. Tomac finished second and Davalos was third.

Team Honda Muscle Milk’s Justin Brayton won the second annual Brett Michaels Rock Hard-Ride Hard Award and received a $10,000 bonus.
