SX: Dungey holds off Tomac to win inaugural race in Santa Clara
Ryan Dungey raced to his seventh 450SX victory of the 2015 Monster Energy Supercross season Saturday night at Levi's Stadium.
Dungey, who wrapped up his second championship last week in Houston, held off a hard-charging Eli Tomac to win the inaugural Santa Clara race.
“I really enjoyed wrapping up the championship last weekend, but I came into this race wanting to continue to win the remainder of the races,” said Dungey. “I’m really excited that I was able to get another win tonight and am looking forward to the final two races.”
Weston Peick finished third to claim his first career podium finish. A pair of rookies - Jason Anderson and Cole Seely - rounded out the top five.
Yamaha's Cooper Webb won for the sixth time in the Western Regional 250SX Class. He also wrapped up the season title in Houston.
"It was definitely a wild and hectic main event," Webb said. "I just tried to get up as fast as I could and charge."
Webb was referencing a massive first-lap crash which collected over half of the riders, including the 2015 champion. He quickly remounted and worked his way through the field before taking over the lead on Lap 7.
Justin Hill and Alex Martin joined Webb on the podium. The 250SX West riders will have a week off before racing in the West-East shootout in Las Vegas on May 2.
