2013 Las Vegas Supercross Preview
It’s all about the 250’s. Ken Roczen v Eli Tomac in the West series, Wil Hahn v. Marvin Musquin in the East series. All going to be settled tomorrow night in Sam Boyd Stadium at the Finale of the 2013 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series. (YouTube videos below featuring those four riders, along with Ryan Villopoto.)
At today’s press conference, all the 250 riders (Marvin, Wil, Eli, and Kenny) seemed relaxed and confident. All were at ease. Saturday’s night format is a bit different that the other races in the season, as both East and West will have a Final / Main Event to determine their series championships, and then – there will be the traditional East / West Shoot-out – the only time during the supercross season that the top riders in both the East and West series will race together.
