USA Pro Supermoto made its way to Las Vegas, Nevada for a season finally at Caesar Palace. The Lites and Premier classes of USA Pro Supermoto were combined for the final race of the season, battling on a tight and technical course that proved to be challenging for all riders. With the Las Vegas strip as its backdrop, the intricate track gave spectators the exciting, action packed battle they were hoping to see.
The night heated up at Caesars Palace when Shane Narbonne put his Wiggins Insurance/Kawasaki on pole for the MVDUSA.com Dash For Cash, only to encounter front brake problems, which eliminated him from competing in the Dash. Gage McAllister grabbed the holeshot and was unchallenged for the victory, putting him on Pole for the main event and after his DSN in the Dash, Narbonne was forced to start eighth.
As the fastest twenty riders lined up for the main event, premier class put point’s leader Jamie Sievers was still in the pit area dealing with mechanical issues. With the championship on the line, Sievers had two minutes to get to the grid or his eight-point lead would vanish. Ready to go as an alternate, 21st place qualifier Tina Reed offered her bike to the point’s leader so he could race for the title.
As the race began it was Micky Dymond’s time to shine, he grabbed the holeshot, with McAllister and Narbonne holding on to a close second and third. The top three checked out and battled all race long unaware of the second battle going on right behind them for the national championship. Tim Velasquez had enough riders between him and Sievers to take the championship but the challenging course caused another flat tire, leaving Sievers the 2013 USA Pro Supermoto premier class champion.
With Velasquez out of the championship, all of the attention went back to the front where Dymond, McAllister and Narbonne were still battling. With two laps remaining Dymond had trouble getting around a lapped rider, allowing McAllister to sneak by and take the overall win. Dymond was able to hold on to second and Narbonne finished the race in third. Even after a tenth place start, the 2013 Lites Champion Ron Reed finished fourth overall, giving him the race win in the Lites category and a remarkable 2013 season winning every moto in the class.
