Posted:

Red Bull KTM'sRyan Dungey picked up his third consecutive Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, win of the season at Lucas Oil Stadium in front of 60,491 fans.

Andrew Short put his BTO Sports.com/KTM across the SupercrossLive.com Holeshot Award line before Dungey and Team Honda HRC's Cole Seely to start the 450SX Class Main Event. Discount Tire/TwoTwo Motorsports' Chad Reed, who captured his first win of the season at the first race in Atlanta, crashed in Turn 2 and remounted in last place.

Dungey moved into the lead on Lap 1 as Seely took over second place. Tomac, who came into tonight in third place, crashed on Lap 1 and lost several valuable positions. On Lap 2, Autotrader.com/Toyota/Yamaha's Weston Peick passed Short for third place.

Team HRC's Trey Canard charged through the field, eventually passing Peick for third place on Lap 10. Canard held on for third place, his seventh podium finish of the season.

Seely earned a season-best second place finish and moved into fourth place in the season standings, up from seventh place.

With a 45-point lead in the season standings, Dungey has five wins on the year and is the fifth rider in history to win back-to-back races in Indianapolis. In the 23 races held in Indianapolis, the winner of the race has gone on to win the 450SX Class Championship 17 times.

"This is a week-by-week battle," said Dungey. "I knew how important the start was, and Andrew [Short] was up front early on, so I knew I had to get around him," said Dungey. "It was a tough track; on the last lap, I took it nice and easy."

Australia's Chad Reed qualified directley to the main event from his heat race. When the main event got underway the TwoTwo Motorsports, Discount Tyres Kawasaki rider crashed in the second corner leaving him in last place. By race end he was able to work his way up to a 9th place finish.

GEICO Honda's Justin Bogle, the defending class champion, started the Eastern Regional 250SX Class Main Event with the SupercrossLive.com Holeshot Award. Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing's Martin Davalos quickly moved around Bogle to take over the lead.

Musquin followed closely in second place on the opening lap and passed Davalos on the next lap.

While riding in second place on Lap 1, Davalos crashed and dropped several positions. On Lap 2, Davalos would crash again, and at the halfway point of the race, he was running in 19th place.

On Lap 9, Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Joey Savatgy, who was running in third place, suffered mechanical failure and was forced to withdraw from the race. Savatgy came into tonight in fourth place in season standings.

Bogle held on for second place and is second overall in season standings. This year he has been on the podium at every race with two second place finishes and three third place finishes.

Rookie RJ Hampshire earned the first podium of his career with a third-place finish. Hampshire advanced into fourth place from sixth place in the season standings.

Musquin now has four wins on the season and eight career 250SX Class wins.

Australian privateer Taylor Potter qualified for his first main event for the season, after a final lap battle with championship contender Jeremy Martin in their heat race. Martin who was coming from the rear of the field after a early race crash attempted to pass Potter on the final lap, with Potter holding his ground running the Yamaha rider wide and going on to a fine ninth place finish.

Potter then raced to a 18th place main event finish to pick up his first championship points for the season.

Racing action takes place next Saturday night at Detroit's Ford Field.
