Dungey Soars to 7th Monster Energy Supercross Win at Levi’s Stadium

Posted:

Red Bull KTM's Ryan Dungey earned his seventh Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, race win tonight in front of 42,336 fans at the inaugural race inside Levi Stadium.

Dungey win coming just one week after clinching the Western Regional 250SX Class Championship, Yamalube/Star Racing/Yamaha's Cooper Webb followed up with a win tonight.

Autotrader.com/Toyota/Yamaha's Justin Barcia, who is in his second race back from injury, won the SupercrossLive.com Holeshot Award in the 450SX Class with Discount Tire/TwoTwo Motorsports' Chad Reed following in second. While battling for the lead on Lap 2, Reed crashed and dropped to last place.

Dungey, who clinched his second 450SX Class Championship last weekend in Houston, moved into second place and Autotrader.com/Toyota/Yamaha's Weston Peick moved into third place on Lap 1. Dungey passed Barcia for the lead on Lap 3 and started to pull away. The following Lap, Peick moved into second place, and on Lap 6, GEICO Honda's Eli Tomac moved into third place.

Tomac made one final move for second place on Lap 10 to pick up his ninth podium finish of the season. Peick held on for third place, which was the first best finish of his career.

Coming into tonight's race, Dungey was tied with Jeff Ward for eight place on the all-time 450SX Class win list, and he is now in sole possession of that position.

"Today was rough; it took a few practices to finally get the bike dialed in," said Dungey. "The Heat Race win gave me a good spot on the gate for the Main Event, which was a big help in getting the start I did."

"It's been a rough season for me, many ups and downs," said Peick. "To be able to put the bike on the podium for the team is awesome. I am stoked."

Motosport.com/Monster Energy/Kawasaki's Josh Hansen started the Western Regional 250SX Class Main Event with the SupercrossLive.com Holeshot Award, and behind him a massive pile-up in turn one collected several riders, including Red Bull KTM's Justin Hill and Webb. Webb's teammates Jeremy Martin and Aaron Plessinger followed in second and third respectively.

On Lap 1, Plessinger passed Martin for second place, and on Lap 3, he passed Hansen for the lead. By Lap 4, Webb had moved into fourth place after starting in ninth. While leading, Plessinger crashed on Lap 6 and dropped to fourth place, giving the lead back to Hansen. On the same lap, and Webb moved into second place.

On Lap 8, following an intense battle between Hansen and Webb, Webb took over the lead and rode to his sixth win of the season and fourth consecutive. Hansen was forced to withdraw from the race due to mechanical issues.

Plessinger was holding down the number three position when he once again crashed on Lap 9. Plessinger's crash allowed Hill to move into second place, where he would finish, marking Hill's second podium of the season. Martin finished third, marking his fifth podium finish of the season.

"It was definitely a wild and hectic main event. I just tried to get up as fast as I could and charge," said Webb. It was basically a race to get your bike up the fastest and it worked out. I had fun racing with Hansen."

Racing continues next weekend at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
