The 12th and final stop of the 2014 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, came to a championship conclusion at Miller Motorsports Park at the Zions Bank Utah National on Saturday August 23, 2014.
With the 250 Class title decided, all eyes were on the 450 Class battle between Redbull KTM teammates Ken Roczen (points leader) and Ryan Dungey with only 20 points separating them entering the final 2 Moto heats of the season.
Trey Canard went wire to wire from holeshot to finish in 450 Class Moto 1, with Dungey finishing second gaining two points towards catching Roczen who rode ultra conservative.

Canard, Roczen, Dungey and Eli Tomac separated themselves from the rest of the field quickly and the four battled for the Moto 1 podium. Out front, Canard landed his third Moto win in four attempts, followed by Dungey and Roczen in second and third respectively.
"Ive been able to finish this season on a strong note," Canard said. "Three moto wins for me is a great accomplishment and it creates a lot of team momentum as we end the outdoor season and look towards the Supercross season."
Canard kept the immediate momentum going as he went wire to wire again capturing the holeshot and the win in Moto 2.
