“It was a fun race, and we all raced clean,” said Dungey. “I was able to see what lines were working out there, so I learned through the race. I tried to be patient out there tonight. Racing 20 laps is a long time, so you have to be smart.”

2nd: Josh Hill Speaks…

“On lap 12, I started to get tired and had to settle for second,” said Hill. “That was a great race up at the front of the pack, and I was enjoying the competition. The goal is to keep getting better each week.”

3rd: James Stewart Speaks…

“Ryan and Josh were riding awesome tonight, and I am happy to come out of here with a decent finish,” said Stewart. “I try my best, and that is all I can do. I always give it 100%.”

Weimer didn’t take long to establish the lead as he moved passed his teammate Josh Hansen, who won the Spike Holeshot Award, after turn two. Hansen, of Elbert, Colo., was passed on lap three by Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil/Honda’s Wil Hahn, of Decatur, Texas. Late in the race GEICO Powersports Honda’s Trey Canard passed Hansen late in the race to secure third place.

Hahn held on for second place, which was his best finish of the 2010 season. Weimer now leads the Western Regional AMA Supercross Lites class points race with a 19-point lead over Canard.

1st Lites: Jake Weimer Speaks…
