Ryan Dungey Race Action Shot

KTM USA Press Release:

Red Bull KTM Factory riders captured two of the three podium positions on Saturday for round nine of the AMA 450SX Championship at Daytona International Speedway. Current points leader Ryan Dungey captured second overall, while his teammate Marvin Musquin rounded out the podium in third place.

Dungey and Musquin qualified third and fourth place respectively on a uniquely tough Daytona Supercross track. Musquin lined up in 450SX Heat 1, where he got off to a great start aboard his KTM 450 SX-F Factory Edition. Musquin quickly made a pass on fellow Frenchmen Christophe Pourcel to take over the lead, where he went on to capture the heat race win.

In 450SX Heat 2, Dungey grabbed a third place start and quickly moved into the second place position. However, Dungey wasn’t able to make the move on Tomac for the lead, ultimately finishing second in his heat.

Ryan Dungey Podium Shot

In the 450SX Main Event, both Red Bull KTM Factory riders got off to a great start but it was Dungey who claimed the official holeshot. With Musquin and Dungey close in tow, Eli Tomac commanded the lead on the opening lap.

Dungey maintained a close second place position throughout the 20-lap Main Event but wasn’t able to make a pass on the leader. In the end, Dungey finished only two seconds back to claim his ninth consecutive podium finish with second overall. The defending 450SX Champion gained valuable points in the championship chase, where he will maintain the lead heading into round ten.

“Daytona is always a nasty one,” commented Dungey. “But it’s good to be on the podium and pick up some valuable points in the overall championship.”

Musquin settled into third behind his teammate Dungey, where he kept a solid pace throughout the Main Event. Musquin’s great performance earned him a third-career 450SX podium finish and a boost into seventh place in his rookie championship season.

“To be second and third tonight it a good result for the team,” Musquin said. “To be third tonight is big for me and I’m happy to be up on the podium again.”
