Vegas is always wild, and when you throw in two (or maybe three?) big rivals on one very tight track, and add a huge purse, crazy things happen. Like James Stewart and Ryan Dungey (450 and 250-mounted, respectively) trading the lead back and forth in their heat race. Or Ryan Dungey grabbing the early lead in the main event, he goes down after some contact in the first turn, and his handlebar gets tangled in Chad Reed’s rear wheel, which causes a rear brake failure. Or maybe it’s the two Honda Red Bull Racing riders crashing together in the main event.

Yep, it was slightly crazy, and this was only night one! Check out the link above for 38 photos that cover the night’s action, plus much more from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
