Dungey Takes First Career Monster Energy Supercross Win and Points Lead at Wild Night in Phoenix; Weimer Works Through Tough Competition to Win Supercross Lites

PHOENIX, Ariz. (January 16, 2010) – After an epic head one week prior, cycle two of the 2010 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, a FIM World Championship, season didn’t baffle as Rockstar/Makita/Suzuki’s Ryan Dungey, of Belle Plaine, Minn., won his first vocation AMA Supercross class triumph on the way to taking the focuses lead. Creature Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Jake Weimer, of Rupert, Idaho, caught his second in a row AMA Supercross Lites Western Regional triumph.

The night started significantly when focuses pioneer James Stewart, of Haines City, Fla., was associated with an unnerving accident amid his warmth race. The San Manuel Yamaha rider defeated evident torment to contend in the last shot qualifier where he took the win and met all requirements for the headliner. As the doors dropped, Dungey dashed to his second in a row SPIKE Holeshot Award, with Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto, of Poulsbo, Wash., and colleague Austin Stroupe, of Lincolnton, N.C., following, and never thought back driving every one of the 20 laps of the headliner.

“I’m simply pumped on the pleasant execution (today around evening time),” said Dungey. “This is a major advance in my vocation. I owe a great deal of gratitude to every one of the general population supporting me. I’m happy to get this off the beaten path and I’ll always remember it. It’s right on time in the season and a week ago was extreme. James was on it and I trust he’s alright. It’s only awesome to turn out with a win here in cycle two.”

Stewart got himself covered in the back of the field close by equal Chad Reed, of Tampa, Fla., and the pair tailed each other all through the early piece of the race until the point that Reed endeavored to pass the authoritative champion on lap five, causing an impact and consequent fall for the two riders. Reed neglected to complete for the second week consecutively while Stewart soldiered home in fifteenth. Villopoto rode to a strong sprinter up complete while San Manuel Yamaha’s Josh Hill, of Yoncalla, Ore., arrived in third.

As the AMA Supercross Lites class impacted out of the entryways, Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Josh Hansen, of Elbert, Colo., got the SPIKE Holeshot Award with GEICO Powersports Honda partners Blake Wharton, of Pilot Point, Texas, and Trey Canard, of Shawnee, Okla., following in second and third, separately. As the field entered the segment before the main triple, Hansen lost control of his bicycle and endured a hard crash. Wharton expected the lead and would hold it until lap 12 when Rockstar Energy Suzuki/Canidae’s Ryan Morais, of Murrieta, Calif., influenced the go with Weimer to not far behind. The following lap, Weimer made the go for the win.

“I battled a bit for reasons unknown,” said Weimer. “I got my first win (in Phoenix) and I adore it here, however I generally battle in the sand (segment) each year. I committed a few errors before all else and never thought I’d be up here. This is somewhat of an amazement yet it’s awesome.”

Morais completed only behind in second while Wharton hung on for third.

Dungey at present holds a nine-point advantage over Villopoto in the AMA Supercross standings while Weimer drives Morais by eight focuses in the AMA Supercross Lites Western Regional standings.
