East Rutherford, New Jersey – Red Bull KTM factory rider and 2015 450 Supercross World Champion, Ryan Dungey wrapped up his race with a solid second place in the main event of the penultimate round of the Monster Energy Supercross Series, an FIM Championship.

Ryan Dungey
Ryan Dungey was the second fastest qualifier in the morning practice sessions and was placed in the first 450SX heat, where he had a great jump off the line and came around the first corner in third place. Halfway into the first lap he had moved into the lead where he stayed for the remainder of the race. Dungey's heat win gave him the top transfer spot into the main event.

Dungey had a mediocre start aboard his KTM 450 SX-F Factory Edition at the gate drop of the main event and was in eighth position coming around the first corner. But he advanced into the top five after just three laps and began to apply pressure. With five laps to go Dungey was able to close in on the second place ride of Cole Seely. He made the pass stick, moved into runner-up position and carried it to the flag.

“The track was a little rough today and it was hard to make passes in the main event,” stated Dungey. “All in all, it was a really great day of racing. I’m happy to be on the podium and looking forward to the final round in Las Vegas.”

“We are very proud of both of our champions,” stated Roger De Coster Red Bull KTM Team Manager. “To claim both championships in the same season is a remarkable feat. We will celebrate these wins and continue to move forward toward our next goal in the outdoor series.”

Next Event: Las Vegas, NV – May 2, 2015
