It all came down to the series finale at Las Vegas, Nevada. Stewart had a 6-point lead in the standings, so could finish third if Reed won and still wrap up the championship. As Kawasaki's Ryan Villopoto stormed to the second win of his rookie 450cc season, Reed stalked Stewart. When Stewart was balked by lappers, Reed easily could have swept by, but instead waited. A few laps later, entering the fast, dirt-track-style left-hander outside Sam Boyd Stadium, Reed blatantly punted Stewart off-track. Stewart bobbled but didn't fall, and shook his head in disbelief as the fans booed, rejoining the race to finish third and claim his second supercross title.
