Saturday, January 26, 2013
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Ryan Villopoto got his second consecutive Supercross win on Saturday night, and Ken Roczen snapped Eli Tomac's three-race winning streak in the 250SX class.
Villopoto jumped out to an early lead after earning his first victory of the season at Angel Stadium last weekend. Yamaha's Justin Brayton, of Cornelius, N.C., finished second and Davi Millsaps, of Murrieta, Calif., was third.
Villopoto tore his left ACL at Seattle last April after he had already clinched his second series title. The Kawasaki rider from Poulsbo, Wash., finished 16th in the season opener this year and was a runner-up in Phoenix before his breakthrough win last Saturday night.
Roczen passed Cole Seely to get the win in front of a crowd of 46,896 at O.co Coliseum. Seely finished second, and Jason Anderson, of Edgewood, N.M., grabbed third.
