- Jordan Smith wins 250SX East Class

KTM riders made an impressive showing on Saturday for Round 12 of the AMA Supercross Championship in Detroit, Michigan.

TLD Red Bull KTM’s Jordon Smith captured his first-career victory in the 250SX East division, while KTM-mounted riders captured four of the top-five positions in the 450SX class with Red Bull KTM Factory Racing teammates Marvin Musquin and Ryan Dungey at the helm in 2nd and 3rd place respectively.

With only two Main Event wins behind him this season, Ryan Dungey came into Round 12 looking for a big victory in the Motor City. The three-time AMA Supercross Champion began the day well as he qualified 3rd overall just ahead of his teammate Marvin Musquin in the morning’s timed qualifying sessions.

Both riders had a smooth transition into the Main Event – with Dungey capturing the 450SX Heat 2 victory and Musquin finishing 3rd in 450SX Heat 1.

 Trey Canard, however, finished 6th in Heat 2 where he was forced to line up in 450SX Semi 1. Canard battled with David Millsaps throughout the six-lap race, where it was ultimately Millsaps on top and Canard in 2nd place.

Main Event

It was Musquin who shot off the line in the 450SX Main Event to capture the holeshot aboard his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION. Musquin led the first three laps of the race until Eli Tomac made his way into the lead on lap four. Dungey began the race just inside the top ten, where he was forced to work his way through the pack early on.

Dungey was able to make his way up to 4th by the halfway point and from there he set his sights on a podium position. Musquin held tough to ultimately capture 2nd overall for the night to earn his seventh podium finish of the season.

Musquin: “Today was a really tough day, honestly I don’t really like this track in Detroit. It was so hard and slick, not my favorite conditions. It was a good thing I pulled the holeshot, that really saved my main event.

I was not the fastest today, Tomac pulled away and I was able to keep 2nd place but it doesn’t feel like a 2nd place tonight. It was a long main but we still made it happen. Once again Red Bull KTM has two bikes on the podium but it’s not the center so it’s a little frustrating but we’ll keep pushing to make it happen.”

Dungey went on to finish 3rd overall for the night, where he continues to hold the championship points lead with five rounds of racing left this season.

Dungey: “I think the hardest thing is where we were at in the first lap of the race in the last few races. Eli gets out front and takes off and I have nothing for him but I put in a hard charge for 3rd and that was good. We just have to put ourselves in a better position and work through it together. We have five races left, but we need to turn it up.”

Blake Baggett continues an impressive streak of top finishes as he made a late-in-the-race pass on his teammate Millsaps to capture 4th place, while Millsaps finished 5th after running inside the top three for a majority of the race.

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Trey Canard finished 11th place in just his second race back from injury.

Canard: “It was a good building race for me. Although my finish was not great we made great progress this week and I will continue to keep my eyes forward.”
