Supercross News
Dungey wins Supercross class while Tomac Clinches Western coast Lites Championship


Posted: Sunday, 29th April, 2012 : 4:13 PM - - 6,825 Reads




Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey captured his third Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, win of the season at Rice-Eccles Stadium.

Toyota/Yamaha/JGRMX’s Davi Millsaps started perfectly, winning the Nuclear Cowboyz® Holeshot Award with Dungey on his back wheel to start the Supercross Class Main Event. With the field sorting itself out through turn 1, Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Jake Weimer, moved into second place.

Dungey settled into second place on Lap 8, passing Weimer, but on the same lap, Weimer answered back, knocking Dungey to the ground as he made the pass. Dungey regrouped and made a charge on Weimer before passing him with just a few laps to go.

After capitalizing on a mistake made by Millsaps near the end of Lap 18, Dungey moved into the lead and rode to the win. Millsaps finished second and Weimer finished third.

“It was great racing out there tonight, and I really dug deep,” said Dungey. “I didn’t see [the pass] coming and that was my fault."

"My front wheel got a barrier in the corner and I went down. My focus was to run him down, and I did. I had a tough part of the middle of the season, and I knew I had the speed tonight. I just needed to be patient.” he concluded.

Millsaps’ quest to hold down the number-two position in Supercross Class point standings started in his Heat Race when he rode his way to victory in the eight-lap race. He now has a seven-point lead over Team Honda Muscle Milk’s Justin Brayton.

En route to winning his fourth Main Event of the year, GEICO Honda’s Eli Tomac clinched the first Western Regional Supercross Lites Class Championship of his career.

Rockstar Energy Racing Suzuki’s Jason Anderson, won the Nuclear Cowboyz Holeshot Award with his teammate Martin Davalos, close behind to start the Western Regional Supercross Lites Class.

On the opening lap, Red Bull KTM’s Marvin Musquin, of moved into second, while Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Dean Wilson, secured third place.

Wilson quickly passed Musquin while Tomac moved into third place. Tomac stalked Wilson for several laps before making the pass for second on Lap 8. It didn’t take long for Tomac to cut into Anderson’s lead and make the race-winning pass on lap 10.

A dramatic turn of events happened on Lap 12 when Wilson, who came into tonight’s race four points behind Wilson, suffered a huge crash that forced him to withdraw from the race.

As a result, Tomac scored enough points to clinch the championship. Anderson and Davalos earned career-best results, finishing second and third, respectively.

“It was huge to close out the night with a race win and a championship,” said Tomac. “That was some good racing out there."

"Off the gate I got bumped around and was able to slowly pick guys off and try to pace. I did my best not to do anything stupid. That was the best way to do it.” he concluded

The final race of the 2012 Monster Energy Supercross Championship takes place next Saturday, May 5 at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas.
