Dungey races to first Supercross win of 2015, extends championship lead

BY foxsports • February 1, 2015

Ryan Dungey raced to his first 450SX victory of the Monster Energy Supercross season and 15th overall, holding off Cole Seely on Saturday night at Angel Stadium.

Dungey, the KTM rider from Belle Plaine, Minnesota, increased his lead in the season standings to 11 points over Suzuki's Ken Roczen, the winner of the first two Anaheim races of the season.

Seely, riding a Honda, had the best finish of his career. Honda's Eli Tomac was third, followed by Roczen and Honda's Trey Canard, the winner last week in Oakland.

Yamaha's Cooper Webb won the Western Regional 250SX race for his second Anaheim victory of the season and third in the first five races. The 19-year-old Webb increased his season lead to 18 points over KTM's Jessy Nelson.

Nelson, the winner in the Anaheim opener, was second, followed by Yamaha's Aaron Plessinger and Husqvarna's Zach Osborne. The 15-lap race was restarted from scratch after six laps because of a starting-gate malfunction involving Osborne.
