Ryan Dungey Race Action Shot

KTM USA Press Release:

Red Bull KTM Factory rider Ryan Dungey earned his second victory in a row at the third round of the AMA 450 Supercross Championship held at Angel Stadium to strengthen his points lead on the series.

Dungey had the third fastest lap time in the afternoon practice qualifying sessions to earn a great gate pick in his heat race. When the gate dropped for his heat, he was able to jump out front early, work his way into the lead and take the victory.

His teammate, Marvin Musquin, had a good jump off the gate in his heat race but was pushed out off the start and had to fight his way back. He was able to come from a last place start to finish 6th in the heat, but unfortunately, did not transfer straight to the main.

Musquin regrouped and lined up for his semi race. In this race, he got another good jump and this time held on to pull the holeshot. He lost the lead after a mistake in the whoop section. He remained in 2nd through the end of the race to earn a spot on the main event gate.

In the main event, it was Dungey who leaped off the line ahead of the field pulling a 2nd place start to fellow KTM rider, Davi Millsaps. Dungey quickly maneuvered around Millsaps and put his Red Bull KTM 450 SX-F Factory Edition motorcycle into the lead. Once out front, Dungey was able to pull a gap on the rest of the field and go on to clinch his second victory.

“I was really happy to get into the lead early,” remarked Dungey after the race. “I just wanted to get out front, ride my own race and pull away. It’s a lot easier when you can get out front and focus on your own rhythm. I’m really glad to get this win and hope to keep this momentum going next weekend.”

Meanwhile, Musquin was pushed out off the start once again, this time causing him to crash into the tuff blocks on the side of the track. When he recovered he was sitting in last position. He charged forward and quickly made up positions as he crept up near the top ten. In a twenty lap race, he was able to charge back to 9th when the checkered flag flew.

“I felt good today,” stated Musquin. “The track was difficult but I felt strong. Unfortunately, I just had some bad mistakes on the starts that cost me. I am happy to have worked my way into the top ten and will continue to improve from there.”

The final member of the Red Bull KTM Factory Team, Dean Wilson, suffered a crash during the afternoon practice sessions that caused him to sit out the race. Wilson is believed to have suffered a knee injury to the same knee he hurt the previous season. He is going to a doctor early next week for further review. More details on the extent of his injury will be given at that time.
