Sunday, July 17, 2011
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Nyjah Huston has become the first pro skateboarder to win three straight Street League contests.
The 16-year-old Huston, from Davis, Calif., easily finished ahead of Ryan Sheckler and Chris Cole in the field of 10 on Sunday. He earned $150,000, bringing his season total to $450,000. In two seasons of Street League, he's won more than $700,000.
Huston had already qualified for the $200,000, winner-take-all Street League Championship on Aug. 28 in Newark, N.J.
Huston won the overall tour standings last year, winning the first stop and finishing third at the other two stops.
Street League was founded by pro skateboarder and MTV star Rob Dyrdek.
