Red Bull KTM rider Ryan Dungey claimed his third Supercross class victory of the season at the Salt Lake City Supercross.
Dungey’s day started with mixed emotions. He pulled off the fastest lap time in the afternoon qualifiers but then had to skip part of a practice session after a collision with another rider caused damage to his bike. The Red Bull KTM Team was prepared for the problem and quickly set to work to make sure it was ready for the main event.
Dungey got off to a great start in the main event and was third at the end of lap one before closing in on Jake Weimer in second place. He crashed at the half way mark after making contact with the other rider but quickly recovered without losing a position.
Fired with the desire to take the victory he then made the pass on Weimer and moved into second place with just four laps to go. Dungey then made the pass on leader Davi Millsaps with just two laps to go to claim his third victory of the season and the third for the KTM brand in Supercross racing.
“It feels great to take another win tonight,” remarked Dungey. “It is an even greater accomplishment to take this win after recovering from my collar bone injury. It solidifies that we made the right choice to come back to racing and finish out the Supercross Series before heading to outdoors."
"I just really want to thank my team tonight. They did a great job getting my bike ready and I couldn’t have won without them.” he concluded
