RACE REPORT: AMA Supercross St Louis

Eli Tomac - Monster Energy Kawasaki was hot during the opening at the Detroit Monster Energy Supercross.


Rocky Mountain ATV M/C KTM’s Dakota Alix pulled the holeshot, before being swallowed up by series-points leader Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Joey Savagty and Red Bull TLD KTM’s Jordan Smith.

Series contenders Zach Osborne and Adam Cianciarulo sat inside the top-5 early while Savagty pulled an early lead.

At the half way point of the final race, Savagty made a mistake whilst holding a 3-second lead launching off the side of the track, handing the lead to Jordan Smith. Zach Osborne made his way into third, ahead of Frenchman Dylan Ferrandis on his YZ250F and Geico Honda’s Christian Craig.
At the chequered flag, Red Bull KTM’s Jordan Smith would take his second win in a row after holding off a charging Savagty in an exciting last lap. Zach Osbourne would hold 3rd.

Smith now sits just 6 points behind Joey Savagty in the points race, with Osborne 12 points down on Savagty in third.

Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey burst into the lead as the gate dropped. An aggressive move by Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Eli Tomac relegated Dungey to second ahead of Red Bull KTM’s Marvin Musquin.

Five-minutes in, Tomac had extended his lead to 2.7 seconds over Ryan Dungey, Musquin in third, Rockstar Husqvarna rider Jason Anderson in fourth and Rocky Mountain ATV M/C KTM’s Davi Millsaps in fifth.
Dungey closed within 1.9 seconds of Tomac before he caught Chad Reed to put him a lap down. Dungey was unable able to clear Chad Reed for a number of laps. From that point, Tomac was gone. ET3 had stretched out a 9-second gap lapping up to 10th place by the chequered flag flew. Ryan Dungey would lead home Red Bull KTM team mate Marvin Musquin.
A visibly upset Dungey expressed his frustration after the main event had finished, gesturing towards the #22. Earlier in the heat, Chad Reed and Ryan Dungey fought hard and close for the lead, rubbing plastics and got aggressive. On the podium, Ryan brushed any comment about Chad. “It’s nonsense, I’m not going to waste my time talking about it.”
Rockstar Husqvarna’s Jason Anderson would finish fourth, while Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Josh Grant finished a season-best fifth.
