Posted:

Yamaha‰Ûªs Josh Hill won the first Monster Energyå¨ AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, race of his career in front of 40,982 fans at the Metrodome last Saturday night, Mar-15. It was the first race at the Metrodome since 2004. Pro Circuit Kawasaki‰Ûªs Ryan Villopoto won his first Eastern Regional AMA Supercross Lites class race of the season. Rockstar Makita Suzuki‰Ûªs Ryan Dungey won the $1,500 Progressive Holeshot Award to open the AMA Supercross class main event. Following Dungey through turn one was Torco Fuels Honda‰Ûªs Kevin Windham and the championship points leader Chad Reed was fifth. On lap three Hill moved past Dungey for the lead and began to pull away. Reed, who rides for Team San Manuel Yamaha, moved into second place and on lap eight, while on the back wheel of Hill, he crashed and re-started in ninth place. Dungey, who competes in the Western Regional AMA Supercross Lites class championship, moved up to compete in the AMA Supercross class and finished second. The race, before his hometown crowd, was his best finish since moving into the premier class. ‰ÛÏI ripped out of the gate tonight and had a good lead,‰Û
