Red Bull KTM SX Race Recap & Results – San Diego

San Diego, CA – Red Bull KTM Factory rider Ryan Dungey finished 3rd at round six of the Monster Energy Supercross Series, an FIM World Championship held a Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego tonight.

Dungey qualified sixth fastest from the days practice sessions to earn a spot in heat race number one. When the gate dropped for the heat Dungey rounded the opening turn in 8th and went on to work his way back into the top five, moving up to 4th place before the completion of the race.

He had a decent gate pick for the main event and elected to start from the third gate to the left of the start box. Launching from the start line Dungey was positioned in about sixth place by the end of the opening lap. Shuffling a few spots during the race, he successfully got around Justin Brayton to move into podium contention with six laps to go. Dungey’s third place result is good enough to retain second overall in the championship points with 113.

“I’m actually pretty happy with my ride tonight,” said Dungey. “It was a tough track to pass on and as I didn’t get a great start, I think I rode pretty strong to come through the pack and finish on the box. It would definitely make my life a little easier if I could keep getting a start like I did last week! But that’s just something I have to work on”.

Next Event: February 16, 2013 – Arlington, TX
