Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto made history in East Rutherford at the weekend as Monster Energy SX celebrated its first visit to MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, claiming his fourth-consecutive Monster Energy Supercross title.
“It feels great to wrap up my fourth championship in front of this crowd at MetLife Stadium,” said Villopoto.
“Our goal coming into every season is to win the title and it is amazing accomplishing that goal year in and year out,” he added. “We stayed consistent all year long and our hard work has paid off.”
Villopoto now joins the great Jeremy McGrath as the only riders in history to win four straight titles. “To match the ‘King of Supercross’ and win four-straight championships is something I never imagined I would achieve.”
Saturday night’s Main Event win is Villopoto’s third-straight victory and his sixth of the season. RV finished on the supercross podium 11 times in 2014 and only finished outside the top-five once.
With one round remaining in the 2014 Monster Energy Supercross season, Villopoto will look to earn another victory at the series finale in Las Vegas.
