Red Bull KTM’s Marvin Musquin earned his second victory of the season on Saturday at round 14 of the AMA Supercross Championship in Seattle, Washington.
Musquin had a flawless day of racing as he claimed the heat race victory before going on to lead all 20 laps of the 450SX Main Event.
His teammate, Ryan Dungey, finished just off the podium in fourth place after a first-turn crash forced him to have to pick his way through a majority of the field.
Musquin: “My start wasn’t the best, I was really close to going down in the first corner but I was able to get out clean and get into the lead in the first lap, which was awesome.
I tried to push as hard as I could but not too much because it was easy to make mistakes – the track was technical and had some rocks. It means a lot to get this (win), my first victory in Dallas I was missing my mechanic Frankie so today I’m really proud and happy.”
Dungey continued to climb his way through the pack, where he finished fourth place for the night.
Dungey: “Obviously going down in the first turn wasn’t ideal but from that point forward we just tried to pick as many riders off as we could and try to gain as many championship points as we could and not make any big mistakes.
Overall it was a good night – we salvaged what we could. I felt great, the bike felt awesome and everything was all lined up – we just had a little mishap in the first turn, but that’s just the way it goes.”
Dungey heads into the final three rounds tied with Eli Tomac in the 450SX championship standings.
