Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki‰Ûªs Justin Hill clinched an emotional first career title and Pro Circuit‰Ûªs 20th Monster Energy Supercross championship after racing to a third-place result inside Rice-Eccles Stadium.

With a last turn pass, Hill propelled himself ahead of his competition to collect the Western Regional 250SX Class No. 1 plate one round early.

At the start of the main event, Hill was focused on maintaining his double-digit points lead as the riders faced a technical track. He started fifth and quickly moved into fourth after just one lap. When his championship rival went down on Lap 8, Hill knew he had a chance to clinch the title. He rode solidly until the final lap of the night when he was passed ‰ÛÒ a pass that took away the chance to clinch ‰ÛÒ but in the final turn Hill made his move and raced into third, giving him enough points to earn his first-career championship.

‰ÛÏWe‰Ûªve worked so hard for this and I know I‰Ûªve encountered bumps along the way, which makes this championships so much sweeter,‰Û
