After dominating much of the day in Anaheim, Calif., Dean Wilson turned in a solid performance in the 250SX main event to grab his first victory of the 2014 Monster Energy season.

Wilson entered the night as the fastest qualifier – nearly one second clear of the field – and nabbed the win in his respective heat race before pulling off a victory in the 15-lap main. The Kawasaki-backed rider sat in second for much of the race until crashed out of the lead with three laps to go, moving Wilson to the point and ultimately the win.

The stars of tomorrow put on a show for the fans at Angel Stadium and proved that this West Region is wide open when it comes to the title fight.

Each week, Power Rankings will recognize the movers and shakers in Monster Energy . Thanks to aggressive and risky last lap pass for the win, Jason Anderson sits atop the rankings after week one.

1. Jason Anderson – Rockstar Energy Racing
Anderson developed into a consistent contender towards the end of last season and I thought he’d be the breakout rider of the 2014 season. He very well could be a true title threat after his performance last Saturday. Given the stacked field, Anderson was probably somewhat of a surprise winner and it will be interesting to see if he keeps the momentum going.
