... podium second for Dungey  

 
 US Supercross Round 16 at the Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford NJ



Red Bull KTM Factory rider Marvin Musquin was crowned the 2015 East 250 Supercross Champion after taking the victory at the final round of the series held at Metlife Stadium, East Rutherford NJ.


The French rider has had a great season, registering six wins and two podium seconds in the eight rounds on his way to the title. Musquin’s win marks another step forward for the Red Bull KTM Factory team, because teammate Ryan Dungey, already declared 450-class champion in Round 14 of the championship, finished in second place to claim his fifteenth straight podium position the season.


Musquin was placed in the second 250 Supercross heat where he got a great jump out of the gate and headed into the first corner in third place.  But he then went down in a mass collision as riders collided while attacking the first corner. He then quickly scrambled back into the action and began to pick off riders. By the second lap he had moved into a qualifying position at ninth place then passed another four riders to cross the line in fourth place.


When the gate dropped for the main event, Musquin was second at the first corner and then for the first half of the race, concentrated on closing in on the lead rider. He made his move into the front of the pack with a few laps to go, then went on to win the race. Musquin threw his signature heel-clicker as he crossed the line to celebrate his first career 250 Supercross Championship title.


"It feels so amazing to get this title,” remarked Musquin. “To get the win at the final race makes it that much better. My bike was great today as it has been all season. I want to thank my team and my family for all of their help in allowing me to accomplish this goal.” Musquin rides the KTM250 SX-F.



450-class


Red Bull KTM Factory rider and the 2015 450 Supercross Champion, Ryan Dungey wrapped up his race with a solid second place in the main event of the penultimate round of the competition.


He was the second fastest qualifier in the morning practice sessions and was placed in the first 450 heat, where he had a great jump off the line and came around the first corner in third place. Halfway into the first lap he had moved into the lead where he stayed for the remainder of the race. Dungey's heat win gave him the top transfer spot into the main event.


Dungey had a mediocre start at the gate drop of the main event and was in eighth position coming around the first corner. But he advanced into the top five after just three laps and began to apply pressure. With five laps to go Dungey was able to close in on the second place ride of Cole Seely. He made the pass stick, moved into runner-up position and carried it to the flag.


“The track was a little rough today and it was hard to make passes in the main event,” stated Dungey. “All in all, it was a really great day of racing. I’m happy to be on the podium and looking forward to the final round in Las Vegas.” Dungey rides the KTM 450 SX-F.


“We are very proud of both of our champions,” stated Roger De Coster Red Bull KTM Team Manager. “To claim both championships in the same season is a remarkable feat. We will celebrate these wins and continue to move forward toward our next goal in the outdoor series.”
