Ryan Dungey raced to his sixth Monster Energy Supercross victory of season Saturday night, beating Eli Tomac in the 450SX main event at the Edward Jones Dome.
The KTM ace was second after the first turn, but immediately overtook Andrew Short in Turn 2 and was unchallenged for the remainder of the race, leading all 20 laps en route to his 20th career 450SX victory.
"The team has built an incredible bike this season," said Dungey. "I was able to get off to a good start. I was then able to focus on my opening laps and then settle in and focus on the win. I am so happy with my KTM and everyone that has been behind me on the team."
Dungey extended his season lead to 80 points over Tomac with four races left. Canard sits third in the standings, but is out for the remainder of the season after suffering a broken arm in Detroit.
Husqvarna’s Jason Anderson was third, followed by Honda’s Cole Seely, who moved up to fourth in the championship standings. Yamaha’s Weston Peick rounded out the top five.
Dungey’s KTM teammate Marvin Musquin raced to his fifth Eastern Regional 250SX win in seven events, leading all 15 laps. He has a 20-point lead over Honda’s Justin Bogle entering the series finale April 25 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
It was the fifth time this season that both Musquin and Dungey scored a win on the same night.
