The night began with an intense sense of anticipation, as Eli Tomac took the lead in from of the home crowd. But in an instant, he lost the points lead and most surely the title after a non-crash injury down one of the track's rhythm lanes.

With Sexton's win tonight, that puts him now in the top spot, and if Eli doesn't return, almost the sure winner of the crown.

Ken Roczen, the seasoned veteran and fan favorite, put up a valiant effort to secure the second spot on the podium. Roczen's performance was remarkable, showcasing his consistency and exceptional talent with now four podiums in a row. He gave the crowd a run to remember and kept the pressure on Sexton throughout the race.

As the dust settled on the track, it was clear that Sexton had made a significant step towards securing his championship crown. With just one round remaining, the pressure is on for the other riders to challenge Sexton's seemingly insurmountable lead.

The fans in attendance were treated to a night of unforgettable racing, with a fantastic display that only Supercross can provide. The Supercross community remains on the edge of their seats, eager to see how bad is Eli's injury and just how the season's final round will unfold.
