As fireworks erupted in the sky, the gates dropped in Las Vegas, Nevada, for the final chapter of the 2013 Monster Energy Supercross Series. As usual, Sam Boyd Stadium played host to the closing round, where the final champions were crowned after the 250 East and West Coast series witnessed two title fights wind down to the final laps of their respective main events. And as always, after the new East and West champions stand atop their thrones, the top 10 riders from each series throw down in a final race to determine which coast is the best coast. Las Vegas never fails to disappoint.

250 East Coast Main Event

Gavin Faith rocketed off the gates to steal the first holeshot of the night in the 15-lap East Coast main event, with Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Tyler Bowers close behind. The series points leader Wil Hahn had a decent start and sat in fourth early on, while championship contender Marvin Musquin was two spots behind in sixth. Bowers made quick work of Faith and jumped his way past the leader on lap two. Hahn worked his way up to third with a charging Musquin close behind in fourth, and Rockstar Energy Racing's Blake Wharton was back in fifth. While Bowers began to pull away out front, Hahn and Musquin made their way past Faith for second and third, but Musquin inched closer to the back tire of Hahn. Wharton, who still sat in fifth, made a huge mistake while in pursuit of Faith, and launched a massive air wheelie off the finish double. Wharton somehow stayed on his bike after a hard, flat landing, and caught Faith soon after. Musquin reeled in Hahn on lap 11, and bumped his way past for second place. Bowers, who at one point during the race enjoyed a five second lead, had Musquin's number 25 in his rear view mirror in the final corner before the checkered flag dropped, but Bowers held him off for his first ever Monster Energy Supercross win, and denied Musquin from the championship trophy. Wil Hahn finished in third, winning the East Coast series crown.

250 West Coast Main Event

GEICO Honda's Zach Osborne grabbed the holeshot in the West Coast finale, but gave the lead up to Martin Davalos soon after. Rockstar Energy Racing's Ryan Sipes and Red Bull KTM's Ken Roczen quickly made their way into second and third, while Osborne continued to fade, allowing Kyle Cunningham to sneak by into fourth place. As Davalos strengthened his lead over the field, Roczen moved his way past Sipes for second, with Cunningham and a hard charging Eli Tomac in tow. Tomac made his way by Cunningham on lap seven for third place and set his sights on Roczen, who was only 2 seconds ahead. After setting a blistering pace and throwing down the fastest lap time of the night, Tomac picked off Roczen on lap nine, and then reeled in Davalos to take the lead away on lap 11, wiping out Roczen's five-point championship cushion. Roczen showed urgency, and closed in on an unraveling Davalos, who began making mistake after mistake. On lap 13, Roczen caught Davalos in the rhythm section and tripled his way into second and back into the points lead. GEICO Honda's Eli Tomac won, but Ken Roczen's final pass secured him second place and the 250 West Coast Championship. Davalos finished in third, Kyle Cunningham in fourth, and Ryan Sipes in fifth.

250 East/West Shootout

Ken Roczen pulled the holeshot in the East West Shootout, but immediately dropped the position to Marvin Musquin on the first lap. While the two teammates battled back and forth for the lead, a fast Kyle Cunningham followed in third, Wharton in fourth, and Bowers in fifth. Wil Hahn opted out of the shootout, due to the aftermath of a nasty practice crash earlier in the day. Eli Tomac was buried deep in the pack off the start and never made his way inside the top 10. Bowers pushed past Wharton for fourth, running him off the track, but tossed it away himself shortly after. Roczen ran away with the win, Cunningham moved up into second, and Musquin held off an advancing Davalos for third.

Dungey began pressuring Weimer immediately for the lead, but the Kawasaki rider's wide lines continued to stifle Dungey's advances until lap five, when Dungey finally secured the pass.  Weimer managed to work his way back to the front, but Dungey again made the pass and this time he kept his lead through the checkers.
