Under the healthy glow of the flame cannon, the 250 class blasts off the line in Oakland, with the Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki duo of Justin Hill and Dean Wilson getting a great jump. Let's see how the Top 10 in this main played out.

1. The winner? Jason Anderson (Rockstar Energy Racing KTM). That's no big surprise, as it's his third win in four races. And how he got there, with another last lap pass, shouldn't be a surprise, either. The surprise was that it seemed to be a mechanical issue on Dean Wilson's bike that helped set him up for the win. Jason will assume the points lead once again as the series heads back south for the finale of the Anaheim season.

2. Dean Wilson (Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki) has had a rough start to his season, and during laps 7-14 it looked like he was going to turn things around with a win. A second isn't bad, but it's not what he and the team want.

3. Justin Hill (Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki) scored his first Supercross podium in Oakland, and led nearly the first half of the main event.

4. Cole Seely (Troy Lee Designs Lucas Oil Honda) finished off the podium for the first time this season. He's now six points back from Jason Anderson in the title chase.

5. Zach Osborne (GEICO Honda) may not have scored a podium here, but he seemed pretty pumped on his riding afterwards.

6. Michael Leib (AG Motorsports/Rocket Exhaust) has had a rough time at a couple races this year, but put it together in Oakland with a solid sixth. He has to be pumped with that result.

7. So now that we're about halfway through the 250 West season, is it too early to talk about how Jessy Nelson (Troy Lee Designs Lucas Oil Honda) broke his sternum during the off-season, bruised his heart, and spent some time in an ICU? Oakland was his best result so far.

8. Shane McElrath (Troy Lee Designs Lucas Oil Honda) finished in eighth, one spot ahead of his ninth-place standing in the 250 West points.

9. Cooper Webb (Yamalube Star Racing Yamaha) was sixth early in the race, and 20th after three laps. The rest of his race was all about salvaging a result.

10. Dean Ferris (Red Bull KTM) got around Jake Canada (5150 Energy) for ninth, but lost a spot to Cooper Webb on the last lap and finished 10th.
