New England AMA Supercross – Key Insights and Fascinating Facts
Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, will make its highly anticipated return to New England this Saturday, April 23, with the debut at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, for the 15th race of the season.

Following his third straight 450SX Class victory this past weekend in St. Louis, defending champion and points leader Ryan Dungey enters Foxborough with a chance to clinch his second consecutive title.

The Red Bull KTM rider will also be chasing a personal-best nine wins in a season after equaling the career-best mark he set just last season. In the Eastern Regional 250SX Class Championship, the battle for the points lead is closer than it's been all season, with just one point separating GEICO Honda's Malcolm Stewart and Yamalube/Star Racing Yamaha's Aaron Plessinger.

Some facts and insights to watch heading into this Saturday's race include:
  • With his 30th career 450SX Class win, Ryan Dungey became the sixth rider in Monster Energy Supercross history to reach the 30-win mark, joining Ricky Carmichael, Jeremy McGrath, Chad Reed, James Stewart and Ryan Villopoto.

  • The win extended Dungey's record podium streak to 30 races. He also has 32 straight top-five finishes, 43 consecutive top-10 results and has started 68 straight races.

  • Dungey is one podium away from tying Ricky Carmichael for third on the all-time list at 87. He will also equal Carmichael's all-time career starts this weekend at 115.

  • Dungey's eighth win of the season equals the career-best mark he set last season. He has won at least one race in each of his seven seasons of 450SX Class competition.

  • Another victory would mark the first time in his career that Dungey has won four consecutive races. He has two separate three-race streaks this season alone.

  • The 450SX Class podium has produced the exact same finishing order for three straight weeks - Dungey in first, Ken Rocen in second, and Jason Anderson in third.

  • Chad Reed became just the third rider in history to make 200 starts last weekend. Another longtime veteran, Nick Wey, will look to make his 190th career start this weekend. He currently sits tied with Jeff Ward for fourth all time.

  • Jeremy Martin's 250SX Class win ended a 14-year gap between St. Louis wins for Yamaha. He also became the first repeat winner in the Eastern Regional Championship this season.

  • Aaron Plessinger finished second behind Martin, giving Yamalube/Star Racing Yamaha its first ever 1-2 finish.

    Gannon Audette has just two top-five finishes in 27 career 250SX Class starts, both of which have come in back-to-back weeks riding as a substitute for Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki.
