It took three races and leading 40 of 45 main event laps to finally take the checkered flag, but Cole Seely is now officially a race winner in 2014. His triumph combined with a penalty for Jason Anderson also moved Seely into control of the West Region Championship.

Each week, The Power Rankings will recognize the movers and shakers in Monster Energy Supercross. Despite Seely’s breakthrough, Anderson still paces this week’s Power Rankings, even with his misfortune.

Everything changed with last weekend’s win in Anaheim, Calif.

Pulling ahead late in a wild race filled with crashes and numerous lead changes, Reed won for the first time since 2012, ending a 22-race winless streak and giving him the boost of confidence he needed.
