Here we go, counting up through the Top 10 of the 250 main. This one had no shortage of fireworks.

Dean apparently remembered the view from the middle of the podium isn't bad at all.

1. Last week's finish was rough for Dean Wilson (Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki), with a lead on the last lap. Slipping clutch? Nope. They've got a plate/oil package figured out for him. Mechanical? Nope. We hear that the bike was on the dyno for two-and-a-half days afterwards trying to replicate the issue. Some sort of electrical gremlin seems to be the culprit. This week Dean was running in second behind Cole Seely for much of the race, and was in position to take over the lead when Cole went down with three to go.

Cole Seely (Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil/Honda) has been getting killer starts at nearly every round, and this weekend was no exception. Short of a crash when he lost the front end entering a corner, he'd have another win to go along with his A2 victory. As it is, he and Jason Anderson will share the red plate next week as they're tied atop the 250 West standings.

3. Cooper Webb (Yamalube Star Racing Yamaha) scored another podium in his rookie season after starting out in sixth place. He's fourth in the title chase behind Anderson/Seely (who are tied), and Wilson.

4. Justin Hill (Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki) wasn't quite as much a factor in this one as he was last week, but another fourth is in the podium hunt. He had a pretty tough crash during his heat race.

5. Jason Anderson (Rockstar Energy Racing KTM) could have, and probably would have, finished higher on Saturday night, but a crash with Malcolm Stewart dropped him to 11th on lap three. He worked his way back to fifth, including making a clean pass on Malcolm near the end.

6. Malcolm Stewart (Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil/Honda) didn't much appreciate this squeeze, and was battling back at the end of the next straight when he and Jason Anderson collided. Intentional? We'd say no. Reviewed by the AMA crew? Yep, from multiple angles. They didn't have a problem with it.

7. Jake Canada (5150 Energy) missed one round earlier this season due to a concussion, but he's obviously back up to speed and railing. Good starts help.

9. Shane McElrath (Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil/Honda) has been doing well this season, and at times he and Jessy Nelson seem glued to each other.

9. Jessy Nelson (Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil/Honda) has been bouncing around in the 5-10 spots this season.

10. We're going to guess that this was Dakota Tedder's best finish ever in Supercross. He's been looking faster this year.

Both Anderson and Stewart were obviously unhappy with how things turned out, but they discussed it in the infield after the finish, and shook hands.
