Supercross returns to Angel Stadium for its third race of the year Saturday night with the sport still waiting for one of its preseason favorites to win. Ryan Villopoto, who has won the last two Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series titles, has yet to score a victory and three other former champions - James Stewart, Chad Reed and Ryan Dungey - are off to modest starts. Veteran rider Davi Millsaps of Murrieta won the season opener at Angel Stadium on Jan. 5 for his first win since 2010, and rookie Justin Barcia won last weekend in Phoenix.

With two-time champions James Stewart and Chad Reed sidelined with injuries, rookie Ryan Dungey won the nation's top-tier supercross championship last year. But Stewart and Reed are back as the new season opens Saturday night in Anaheim, and the challenge for Dungey and other riders to stay up front is again much tougher. The Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series kicks off its 17-race schedule at Angel Stadium, and three of its first five races are in Southern California. But whereas the series used to race at Angel Stadium three times early in the season, this year it will visit Anaheim twice while also making its debut at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles on Jan. 22. The second Angel Stadium race is Feb. 5. Supercross, which features the riders making high-flying leaps from specially designed mounds of dirt as they speed around the track, is the stadium version of motocross, or off-road motorcycle racing.
