Ryan Villopoto made history last weekend, becoming the fourth rider to win three straight Supercross titles.

He isn't about to let off the throttle for the final race.

When the Supercross season finishes Saturday night in Las Vegas, Villopoto will need to keep his focus to prevent a repeat of last season.

Three weeks after wrapping up the title earlier than anyone in the sports' 39-year history, Villopoto wrecked at his hometown race in Seattle and tore his left ACL last season.

The 24-year-old rider missed the outdoor season, but returned to win nine times, including last week in Salt Lake City to join Jeremy McGrath, Ricky Carmichael and Bob Hannah as the only riders to win three straight titles.
