Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Cooper Webb has taken ahold of the 450SX points lead after securing back to back victories at Oakland’s fourth round of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross and FIM World Championship.

The number two put on a stellar display to narrowly edge out teammate Marvin Musquin (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing), just 0.760s separating the duo across the line.

Blake Baggett (Rocky Mountain ATV/MC KTM) was third followed by Eli Tomac (Monster Energy Kawasaki) and former points leader Ken Roczen (Team Honda HRC), who now sits two points behind Webb. Australia’s Chad Reed (JGRMX Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing) wound up ninth in the main event.

In the 250SX West division, Adam Cianciarulo (Pro Circuit Monster Energy Kawasaki) claimed his second win of the season, boosting him to second in the championship standings.

Monster Energy Yamalube Yamaha Star Racing dup Dylan Ferrandis and red-plate holder Colt Nichols closed out the podium, as Shane McElrath (TLD Red Bull KTM) and Jacob Hayes (CycleTrader Rock River Yamaha) were fourth and fifth respectively. The AMA Supercross series heads to San Diego next weekend round five.
