Red Bull KTM factory rider Ryan Dungey collected his second win of the season at the seventh round of the Monster Energy Supercross Series in Dallas on Feb. 15, leading from start to finish.
Dungey was running fourth early in his heat race before it was red-flagged. On the restart, he pulled the holeshot and went on to win the heat. That win gave him a great advantage for selecting gate pick in the main event.
He nailed the start once more when the gate dropped for the main event putting his KTM 450 SX-F to the front of the pack. Once out front, he checked out and never looked back on his way to taking the win. Dungey crossed the line to take the victory by four seconds ahead of the second place rider.
“I’m really excited to get another win,” stated Dungey. “It feels great to see the hard work pay off and I’m excited to increase the point lead on the championship. I’d also like to congratulate my teammate on his win. It’s always a good night when the team can sweep both races. I think it speaks a lot for our team and the bikes that we ride.”
Dungey’s win in Dallas increases his lead to 12 points in the championship standings heading to the next round. He will again represent the lead in the points with the red plate as the riders head to Atlanta next weekend.
