Red Bull/KTM Factory riders Ryan Dungey and Ken Roczen delivered another successful result at the Budds Creek MX Nationals on Saturday with Dungey extending his winning streak to three in a row and the German teenager scoring his career best at second in the 250 class.
Dungey’s 1-1 result also surged him even higher in the overall points and he now has a 54-point lead in the competition. Roczen, who is currently fourth in the 250 class overall standings shares equal points with third placed Eli Tomac and is only nine points shy of second.
Dungey sent an early signal to the opposition when he laid down a qualifying time in the morning practice sessions that was two second faster than his closest opponent. Dungey carried that momentum into the first moto where he got off to a great start, took an early lead and then led every lap to win by 43 seconds. “I felt very comfortable on this track and was able to pull away early and just focus on my own race,” commented Dungey after the first moto.
