Are you ready to look at the Top Ten from Anaheim 2 for the 250 class? Let's do it.

10. Jessy Nelson was 14th at the start of A2's 250 main, and moved up to tenth at the end.

9. Michael Leib has had a tough time this year with crashes, and a restart during last week's LCQ cost him a possible shot at another main (he was leading when it was red-flagged. He looked good here, though, making lots of passes to jump from 13th to sixth early in this main before eventually ending up in ninth spot.

8. Zach Osborne was another crash victim this weekend, and he dropped to tenth, but came back to eighth.

7. Dean Wilson is healed up from the crash that he had before the start of the season, but he's had a tough time with crashes this season. He was in third before going down here.

6. Shane McElrath put in what was easily his best ride of the season so far, scoring a sixth on the night.

5. Crashes and mistakes have plagued the Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki team this season, and this round was no exception. As you can see, both Justin Hill and Dean Wilson hit the deck here. Hill came from a first turn incident and 19th at the end of the first lap, all the way to fifth.

4. Jason Anderson rode from fifth up to second, but as we understand it, he got tagged two positions for jumping on a red cross flag. He'll come back strong next week, no doubt.

3. Malcolm Stewart scored a podium finish, though he never set foot on it. He was originally fourth, but moved up to third in the final standings. He looks much better this year than he did on a 250 last season.

2. Cooper Webb ended up in second spot in the amended results. He's looking really good, seems to be learning both what to do, and what not to do, and has gotten better throughout the season. Take away the off-track excursion in Phoenix, and this would be more of a three-rider battle in the title chase. As it is, he's tied with Zach Osborne for third overall.

Yeah, write the holeshot check out to Cooper Webb.

1. Cole Seely takes the top spot. We're pretty sure that nearly everyone was pumped to see him get a win at round three. This one had to feel good after having what looked like wins snatched away two weeks in a row.

The Troy Lee Designs Lucas Oil Honda team celebrating on the podium after the race. With the penalty to Anderson, it looks like Cole will take over the series points lead and be rocking the red plate in Oakland.

Great pics Guy, Watching McElrath this year to see how he progresses, He had a couple good starts previous but ended up falling or crashing out. He finally put the while show together for a decent finish.
Lets see how it pans out.

Judging from the 250W region as a whole, it looks like Suzuki will have a WHOLE BUNCH of 2014 RMZ250's on the showroom floor. Get ready boy's, to get the deal of a lifetime if yellow is your color for a 250F..

I did notice that there was no Suzukis in the 250 main, but does it really drive sales that much? I know I would not buy what ever color won the last few races/a championship.
