Practice has wrapped up inside CenturyLink Field, home of the Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks. Weather has been uncharacteristically stellar in the days leading up to the race and continues to be great today, making for one of the driest Seattle tracks in recent memory. As a result, the track is breaking down with deep ruts and a rocky surface. When combined with its technicality it has the makings for an unpredictable night of action.
Ryan Villopoto has a fourth consecutive title within reach entering his home race and needs just five points over James Stewart and Ryan Dungey to clinch the championship in Seattle. However, Villopoto has just one 450SX Class win in four attempts at Seattle (he missed 2010 due to injury), which makes for the most intriguing storyline of the evening.
