16 rounds into the 17-round series of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship, three-time champ Ryan Villopoto secured his fourth-straight crown in New Jersey after winning the 450 Main Event inside Met-Life Stadium, once again scrawling his name into the history books. His fifth win of the season also marked the 40th of his career, and his wrap-up of the championship sets him alongside only one other racer in history to win four consecutive titles: Jeremy McGrath.
Yet another storied season for Villopoto saw its absolute highs and its damaging lows, but the champ persevered and prevailed over the intense competition in the premier 450 class. With a commanding points lead coming into New Jersey, Villopoto needed only to survive the main event unscathed inside the top 18, but RV2 dominated his heat race, then rolled the momentum into the main event to take the checkered flag when the torches lit. By sealing his championship a full round before the season finale, Villopoto left no doubt of his absolute dominance in Supercross.
Ryan Villopoto is the fastest man on a dirt bike….just check the scoreboard. You are one bad man, Ryan. Congrats!
