After wrapping up the 450 Motocross Championship at the previous round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship Red Bull KTM Factory rider, Ryan Dungey, won his ninth straight overall victory at the eleventh round of the series at Steel City Raceway.

At the start of the first moto, Ryan Dungey rocketed his KTM 450 SX-F off the line to grab the holeshot. Dungey quickly pulled away from the rest of the field. He went on to lead every lap of the race to take the first moto win by over 30 seconds on the 2nd place ride.

In the second moto, Dungey started inside the top five and crossed the first lap in 4th position. Dungey made a pass on Jake Weimer for 3rd place on lap two and then began to set his focus on the 2nd place ride of Josh Grant. By the end of the fourth lap, he passed Grant and began to close on the lead ride of Mike Alessi. Just past the halfway point, Dungey closed the gap on Alessi and made a nice pass to take over the lead. Dungey led the remaining laps to take the moto win and the overall for the day.

Dungey’s 1-1 moto finishes earned him his ninth overall victory of the season. “It feels great to come out here and win both motos today,” remarked Dungey. “I had to work hard to make the pass for the lead in the second moto and take the win. I had a lot of fun here and appreciate all of the fans that cheered me on today. I am looking forward to the final round at Lake Elsinore next weekend.”
