Ken Roczen Wins A1 Giving KTM A 1-2 Result Aussie Chad Reed Finishes On The Box
In front of 45,050 fans inside a sold-out Angel Stadium, rookie Ken Roczen won the opening race of Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, aboard his Red Bull KTM.

Three-time Monster Energy Supercross Champion Ryan Villopoto came out swinging in the 450SX Class Main Event, piloting his Monster Energy Kawasaki to the Nuclear Cowboyzå¨ Holeshot Award. On Villopoto‰Ûªs back wheel through the first turn was Roczen, followed by Toyota‰Ûªs/Yamaha/NFab/JGRMX‰Ûªs Josh Grant.

Yoshimura Suzuki‰Ûªs James Stewart moved into third place on Lap 10, passing Red Bull KTM‰Ûªs Ryan Dungey. While leading on Lap 9, Villopoto crashed and handed the lead to Roczen, also allowing Discount Tire Racing/TwoTwo Motorsports‰Ûª Chad Reed and Dungey to move into second and third place, respectively. Villopoto remounted in fifth place.

On Lap 12, Stewart passed Reed for second place and chipped away at Roczen‰Ûªs lead, ultimately closing in on his rear wheel. While attempting to get alongside Roczen in the whoops, Stewart suffered a race-ending crash. On Lap 16, Dungey secured second place as he passed Reed.

In dramatic fashion, Rockstar Energy Racing‰Ûªs Jason Anderson captured the opening race of the Western Regional 250SX Class.

Anderson grabbed the Nuclear Cowboyz Holeshot Award and held down the lead in the 250SX Class Main Event until Lap 4 when Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil Honda‰Ûªs Cole Seely moved into the lead. On the same lap, Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki‰Ûªs Dean Wilson moved into the third spot.

Wilson and GEICO Honda‰Ûªs Zach Osborne traded places near the halfway point of the race and the duel did not stop, lasting several subsequent laps. In the second-to-last turn on the last lap, Anderson passed Seely and rode to the second win of his career.

‰ÛÏThe pass was risky on Cole Seely,‰Û
