Andrew Short put his BTO Sports.com KTM across the SupercrossLive.com Holeshot Award line before Dungey and Team Honda HRC’s Cole Seely to start the 450SX main event. Discount Tire/ TwoTwo Motorsports’ Chad Reed, who captured his first win of the season at the first race in Atlanta, crashed in turn two and remounted in last place.

Dungey moved into the lead on lap one, as Seely took over second place. Tomac, who came into this evening in third place, crashed on lap one and lost several valuable positions.

On lap two, Autotrader.com/ Toyota/ Yamaha’s Weston Peick passed Short for third place.

Team HRC’s Trey Canard charged through the field, eventually passing Peick for third place on lap 10. Canard held on for third place, his seventh podium finish of the season.

Seely earned a season-best second-place finish and moved into fourth place in the season points standings, up from seventh place.

“I thought I would have something for Ryan [Dungey] tonight, but I dropped back a bit,” said Seely. “But I will take a second place.”

The 450SX-class podium was comprised of (from left to right) runner-up Cole Seely, winner Ryan Dungey third-place finisher and Trey Canard.

With a 45-point lead in the season standings, Dungey has five wins on the year and is the fifth rider in history to win back-to-back races in Indianapolis. Of the 23 races held in Indianapolis, the winner of the race has gone on to win the 450SX-class Championship 17 times.

“This is a week-by-week battle,” said Dungey. “I knew how important the start was, and Andrew [Short] was up front early on, so I knew I had to get around him. It was a tough track. On the last lap, I took it nice and easy.”

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Martin Davalos quickly moved around Bogle to take over the lead. Musquin followed closely in second place on the opening lap and passed Davalos on the next lap for the lead – and that’s where he would stay.
