It seemed unsustainable that the 2011 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship could continue getting tighter all the way into the Las Vegas Finale this coming Saturday night, and it seemed that way for a reason: because it was. In Salt Lake City, James Stewart became the first rider to "blink" out of the top four, crashing twice in a matter of feet, the second of which was a big one. He ended up 10th in the race, and now Salt Lake City winner Ryan Villopoto only needs fifth or better in Vegas to seal his first-ever 450cc title.
