LAS VEGAS, Nevada – Red Bull KTM factory rider Ryan Dungey took an impressive win at the season finale of the Monster Energy Supercross Series, an FIM World Championship, held at Sam Boyd Stadium.
Ryan Dungey was placed in the second 450 Supercross heat where he launched off the line to a great start. He moved quickly into the lead and went on to lead every lap of the heat race to take an easy win and top transfer spot to the main event.
Dungey repeated his remarkable start at the gate drop of the 450SX class main event and was in the lead by the end of the second long straightaway on his KTM 450 SX-F Factory Edition. Although Dungey was pressured early on by Eli Tomac, he never lost the lead and after the first five laps was able to put a gap on Tomac and the rest of the field. He went on to pull a significant lead out front to take another win in his impressive championship winning season.
“This is exactly how you want to end the season,” stated Dungey. “I’m very excited to get this win and use this confidence to head into the outdoor season in two weeks.”
