Dodger Stadium hosted its first ever Supercross event in Los Angeles to almost a packed house as the whole place was a buzz over the fact that the field was wide open and anyone could have one. James "Bubba" Stewart was a fan favorite, but really know one could call anyone a true front runner.

After a dramatic intro, and a few pyrotechnics the main event was all that is was chalked up to be.  Brett Metcalfe takes the Holeshot! Team-mate Ryan Dungey is second, and Chad Reed goes down just a few feet after the first corner.

Leader Brett Metcalfe falls on the second lap in a right hand corner. Dungey takes the lead with Stewart closing fast. Kevin Winhdam next, then Justin Brayton, and Trey Canard (who crashed hard in his heat, but came back to win his LCQ). Reed is 19th.

Next lap - James Stewart has taken over lead! Dungey is second, Windham next, Brayton, Canard, Villopoto, Stroupe, Short, Metcalfe. Stewart is leading. Dungey is right behind him.and Villopoto is right behind Dungey. Villopoto has passed Dungey in lap 8.Stewart is out front by one second, Villopoto is second. Dungey is third. These top three are really, really close. Stewart slides out and goes down in a right hand corner Villopoto takes the lead Trey Canard moved into second! Dungey next, then James Stewart now in fourth. Stewart passes Canard. Villopoto out front Dungey is second. Then James Stewart, Trey Canard, and Justin Brayton. Reed has moved up to tenth. Towards the end of lap 15 - Stewart makes a pass on Dungey in a tight left hand corner. It's Villopoto leading on lap 16 now, Stewart next, Dungey chasing, then Canard. Ryan Villopoto takes the win! James Stewart a close second! Ryan Dungey is third.

The top four in Supercross point standings so far - Ryan Villopoto, James Stewart, Ryan Dungey, and Trey Canard finished top four in tonight's Supercross Main Event. And they put on quite a show.
