Indianapolis AMA Supercross – Key Insights and Fascinating Facts
With his sixth win of the 2016 season of Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, reigning 450SX Class Champion Ryan Dungey took one step closer to defending his crown.

This weekend the Red Bull KTM rider will chase a seventh victory as the championship makes its annual visit to the "Circle City" of Indianapolis from Lucas Oil Stadium on Saturday, April 9.

The visit to one of the country's most prominent motorsports destinations will also signify the return of the Eastern Regional 250SX Class Championship, which has featured four different winners through its first four races.

Some facts and insights to watch heading into this Saturday night's race include:

  • Ryan Dungey's 28th career 450SX Class victory moved him into a tie with Rick Johnson for sixth on the all-time wins list.

  • Dungey also earned his 100th career top-five finish and his 84th career 450SX Class podium. He extended his all-time record podium streak to 28 races.

  • Jason Anderson has now recorded back-to-back podium finishes for the first time in his career.

  • Chad Reed added to his all-time record of top-five finishes, which now sits at 155.

  • Trey Canard equaled his season-best finish of fifth. He has finished inside the top 10 in eight of his 10 starts this season.

  • 450SX Class rookie Justin Bogle raced to the best result of his career in sixth. It was just his third top-10 finish this season.

  • Marvin Musquin's four-race podium streak came to an end with the worst result of his rookie 450SX Class season in 17th. It is just his second finish outside the top 10.

  • Despite having missed the last three races, Davi Millsaps still sits 10th in the 450SX Class standings.

  • Justin Brayton made his 100th career 450SX Class start.

  • Malcolm Stewart will enter Indianapolis with the red number plate for the first time in his career as he sits atop the Eastern Regional 250SX Class Championship.

  • Stewart is the third different points leader in the Eastern Regional Championship this season.

  • Four different riders have won in the first four races of the Eastern Regional Championship. The last time that happened was during the 2011 season. It has happened just four times in the history of Monster Energy Supercross.

  • Stewart is the only rider in the Eastern Regional Championship to finish inside the top 10 in each race.

  • The top five riders in the Eastern Regional standings all have two podium finishes and three top-five finishes apiece.

  • Aaron Plessinger's runner-up finish at the previous race in the championship was his career best. He is the only rider in the top five in points without a win this season.
