Red Bull KTM SX Race Recap & Results – Atlanta

Dungey was placed in 450SX heat number one where he earned a fifth place start. Dungey caught Mike Alessi and made a pass for fourth on the fifth lap of the race. On the final lap Dungey suffered a small crash and lost a few positions. He recovered in seventh position which is where he finished earning a transfer spot to the main event.

When the gate dropped for the main event, Dungey jumped out to a top ten start. He was sitting in seventh after the first few corners. On the sixth lap of the race he made a pass to take over sixth position. He quickly reeled in the fifth place ride of Trey Canard and the two battled for that spot for the remainder of the race. Unfortunately, Dungey was unable to make the pass and had to settle for sixth place.

“Unfortunately, I didn’t get the best start and I wasn’t able to put myself in the best position for the overall tonight. I am definitely disappointed in my result but the five guys ahead of me rode really well tonight. I know what to work on and will come back stronger for St. Louis,” stated Dungey.

Red Bull KTM Team Manager Roger DeCoster, commented, “It wasn’t a great night for Ryan. He rode well but the top riders are making no mistakes and we need to work on improving his starts to put him in a better position to fight for the overall.”
