Ryan Villopoto dominated the inaugural race at MetLife Stadium Saturday night to wrap up his fourth consecutive Monster Energy Supercross title.

Monster Energy Supercross’ anticipated return to New York for the first time in 23 years has the makings of a historic evening with Ryan Villopoto on the verge of securing a fourth consecutive title. Villopoto has been the rider to beat throughout the 2014 season and thanks to back-to-back wins, he needs just an 18th-place finish to continue his dominance of the sport. As a result, Villopoto tops the Power Rankings as he looks to do the same thing his hometown Seattle Seahawks did at the Super Bowl in February, win a world championship inside MetLife Stadium.

Each week, The Power Rankings will recognize the movers and shakers in Monster Energy Supercross.

James Stewart maintained his spot as the hottest rider in Monster Energy Supercross by claiming his third consecutive victory in St. Louis and his fifth of the 2014 season. While his surge may be too little too late in terms of the championship, it’s been fun to see some vintage Stewart do what only he can out on the track. His streak is the reason why he sits atop The Power Rankings.
