It was a great night for Aaron Plessinger and the Monster Energy/Yamalube/Star/Yamaha Racing Team as they captured the 250SX West title after 16 laps of racing in the E/W Showdown Main Event. Plessinger, who has shown dominance in all types of race conditions this season, notched four victories in 2018 to set himself up for a favorable outcome at the final round. With a championship on the line, Plessinger rode securely in the eighth-place position during the Main Event to ultimately bring home his first Monster Energy AMA Supercross 250SX West title.

“It was a crazy race, I got off to a mid-pack start and battled with a few guys and when I was right behind Osborne I knew I had the championship wrapped up so I stayed there and tried to stay consistent and not go down. I had one sketchy moment and I backed it down after that. It honestly doesn’t even feel real. I don’t know what to say. It was a gnarly race and gnarly season. We’re number one baby, it’s a dream come true!”
