Ryan Dungey would survive one of the trickiest tracks of the season to score his first Supercross victory of the year, making him the fifth different winner of the season.
Dungey would get a good start and then made an agressive pass on lap five to get by Mike Alessi, before spreading out his league and sailing to an easy victory, 9 seconds ahead of second.
"We needed that one for sure," Dungey commented after his 14th career victory. "The start – that’s all we needed. It took me a couple laps to settle in; the track was nasty tonight. The whoops almost got me enough time. I got by Alessi and I knew that I had nobody close behind me so I rode there for a bit, not forcing myself into a mistake."
Tomac, who got off the line second, would finish second for his best career 450 SX finish.
"I can’t thank my team enough," Tomac said. "I’ve been up and down – inconsistent trying to get comfortable on my bike and on the track. This was one of the toughest tracks of the year – really rutted. It was an awesome race."
Cole Seely would round out the podium, also scoring his best career finish to date as he filled in for the injured Trey Canard.
"It’s a huge opportunity that these guys gave me to ride the bike," Seely said. "Got to give it up to Trey for letting me ride my bike. It was a great night tonight. I’m pumped."
Three-time and defending champion Ryan Villopoto would come back to finish fourth after going down on the first lap; he currently leads Dungey by 23 points. Broc Tickle would round out the top five, followed by Andrew Short and James Stewart. Stewart got off to a bad start, as well, going down in the second turn.
Alessi, who got the holeshot, would go down on lap eight while running second behind Dungey. However, he wasn't the only rider to go down as Josh Grant flipped over the handle bars with two laps to go and rookie Ken Roczen ran into trouble as well. Roczen, who won last week and came into the night second in points, would go down on the first lap after contact with Weston Peick. Roczen would make his way back up to 11th, before going down once again and ending his night early.
"I crashed on the start," Roczen said. "I tried to catch back up and I think I went over the bars in the rhythm section over there. I’m hurting in the back a little bit; it’s a little hard to breath."
The night featured a small controversy in the Last Chance Qualifier when Enticknap would get ran off the course by Chisholm. Enticknap stayed up on his bike and returned to the course, though because of passing Chisholm off course, he was not allowed to transfer while Chisholm grabbed the final transfer spot.
In the Supercross Lites East division, Pro Circuit scored their third straight win as rookie Adam Ciancirulo grabbed his second career win in three races ahead of teammate and last week's winner Martin Davalos. Davlos got the early lead, though would go down after hitting a rut coming out of the corner. Davalos' mistake allowed Ciancirulo to slip by and Ciacirulo would minimize his mistakes on the way to victory.
The 450 Supercross and the 250 Supercross East Lite riders will now look towards next weekend's event at Daytona International Speedway, where they'll tackle a track designed by Ricky Carmichael.
