DUNGEY FINISHES 2ND AT MILLER MOTORSPORTS PARK
TOOLE, Utah – Red Bull KTM Factory rider Ryan Dungey earned two consistent 2nd place moto finishes in the 450 Motocross class at the penultimate round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship Series, held for the first time at a new location, Miller Motorsports Park.
Ryan Dungey started the first moto in 7th place and quickly went to work to climb toward a podium position. Four minutes into the race, he had already moved in 4th place and began to battle James Stewart for 3rd. Dungey was able to jump past Stewart to take over the position and work his way up to Trey Canard who was sitting 2nd. The two riders battled for the next three laps before Dungey was able to make an inside pass to gain the position. Dungey held strong for the remainder of the race to finish in that position putting his KTM 450 SX-F on the podium.
Dungey improved his start for the second moto and came around the first corner in 4th position. He made two passes around Canard and Ryan Sipes early in the race to move into the runner-up position before the end of the first lap. He again put together a solid performance on the rough course to hold onto his position for the remainder of the race to earn another 2nd place result. His 2-2 results earned him 2nd overall for the day.
