In front of 58,552 fans at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis, Missouri, for the sixth time this season, Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey was victorious en route to winning the Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, race. Red Bull KTM’s Marvin Musquin won his fifth Eastern Regional 250SX-class race, leading all 15 laps of the main event. Tonight was the fifth time this season that the Red Bull KTM team swept both classes.

On the first lap, Autotrader.com/ Toyota/ Yamaha’s Weston Peick trailed Dungey in second, with Rockstar Energy/ Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Jason Anderson in third. GEICO Honda’s Eli Tomac, who won last week’s main event in Detroit, moved into third place, but Anderson answered back and repassed him to hold down the number-three position.

Near the halfway point of the race, Peick was passed by Anderson, then Tomac, and finally Team Honda HRC’s Cole Seely. Peick finished the race in fifth place, bouncing back from his 22nd-place finish last weekend.

On lap 14, Tomac passed Anderson for second place, and that’s where he would finish. Anderson finished in third, marking his second podium finish of the season.

That was a monkey off my back,” said Anderson. “I have been wanting to get back on the podium since the first race of the season. There are a lot of people behind me to help me get here, and I am going to come out swinging at the next race.”

Tomac now has seven podium finishes on the season and is second in the season points standings.

“I struggled off the start and didn’t make the fast passes early enough in the race,” admitted Tomac.

Dungey, who captured the second win in St. Louis of his career, has an 80-point lead over Tomac in the season standings.

“I tried to open a gap on Weston [Peick], but he kept me honest in the early stages,” said Dungey.

Yamalube/ Star Racing/ Yamaha’s Jeremy Martin picked up the SupercrossLive.com Holeshot Award to start the Eastern Regional 250SX main event, with Musquin in tow. Musquin moved around Martin in turn two, and the two traded places a few times on the opening lap before Musquin pulled away.

Musquin had established a 2.9-second lead by lap five. Earlier, on lap three, Monster Energy/ Pro Circuit/ Kawasaki’s Joey Savatgy established a sizable lead in third place.

Defending class champion Justin Bogle worked his way through the field up to fourth place and set out after Savatgy, but he was unable to cut into the deficit. Martin finished second and Savatgy finished third.

“To be on the podium is where I need to be, but I want to be a little higher,” said Savatgy of his third podium finish of the season. “I can’t wait to get on the gate in New Jersey.”

“We work hard during the week and come here prepared to race,” said Musquin. “I had a good pass early on, and we battled on the opening lap.”
