Villopoto was unstoppable all day, taking the top qualifier, winning his heat, and eventually racing to the main event victory. The champ continued to add to his career wins total, giving Villopoto a tally of 31 victories in the 450SX class.

Dungey’s win marked the second KTM win of the night after his teammate, Ken Roczen, took the victory in the 250SX class for the second weekend in a row.
Dungey’s day started well with him turning fast lap times in the afternoon qualifiers. Unfortunately, a mechanical issue right at the start of his heat caused him to not finish the race and he had to race the LCQ.
In the LCQ, Dungey got caught in a first turn pile up and had to work his way into qualifying position. He passed into the final qualifying spot on the last lap to transfer into the main event.
The sold-out crowd was treated to an action-packed night of racing with Monster Energy riders turning out impressive performances.
Monster Energy’s Chad Reed (below) made his return to racing after a long recovery from injury he sustained during the 2012 Monster Energy Supercross season. He showed consistency in the main event where he finished just off the podium in fourth.

AURORA, Ill. – Feld Motor Sports announced today that Dianna Dahlgren will return as Miss Supercross during the 2013 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, season that begins January 5 at Anaheim’s Angel Stadium.
The 2013 Monster Energy Supercross Championship will mark Dahlgren’s third season in the Miss Supercross role. A fan favorite, Dahlgren will serve as the sport’s spokes model and pit reporter and she will interact with the fans during the entire 2013 Monster Energy Supercross season.
“It means the world to me to have the opportunity to once again serve as Miss Supercross, and I want to thank Feld Motor Sports for bringing me back for the third year,” said Dahlgren. “The last two Monster Energy Supercross seasons have been amazing, and heading into 2013, it appears that we may see the sport’s deepest field of completion ever.”
From the beginning of the X Games Speed & Style heat, it was apparent that Mike Mason rode with the determination of someone who was hungry for gold. Eager to redeem himself of his second place performance in 2011, the Carson City, Nev. native refused to let anyone get in his way.
“I’m pumped on getting an X Games gold medal! It was awesome going against Nate and Faisst back to back. Coming out on top makes me feel like I earned it,” said Mason, who was all smiles.
Nate Adams, who claimed gold the year before finished second behind Mason after losing a crucial opportunity to pass him on the inside.
“I had a chance to run him up high and I could have hit him. I decided I was going to leave him a little room and then I lost traction. If I could do it all over again, I probably would have ran him high, made some contact, and made a race out of it,” said Adams.
