Motocross Results

Round two of the 2010 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship commenced from Freestone Raceway in Wortham, Texas on Saturday with the Flagstar Bank Freestone National.

Rockstar/Makita Suzuki’s Ryan Dungey, of Belle Plaine, Minn., captured the 450 Class victory to earn his first career win at the top level of the sport.

After a tough opening round, Dungey returned stronger than ever in Texas and proved he is a title contender in the premier class.

After grabbing good starts in each moto, he worked his way into the lead in the early stages and never look back, posting perfect 1-1 moto scores en route to the overall.

Ryan Dungey says: "It feels good to come back strong and get a win," said Dungey. "We had a tough weekend at the opening round but we went back and worked hard to get better and were able to get a win. I want to be at the front of the pack and challenge for wins and the championship so it feels good to get that first one out of the way."

Defending 450 Class champion and first round winner Chad Reed, of Australia, endured a pair of tough starts aboard his Monster Energy Kawasaki, but showed an impressive resiliency by working his way through the field, finishing second and third to grab the runner-up spot overall.

Merge Racing Honda’s Kyle Regal, of Kemp, Texas, grabbed a career-best third overall (5-3) in front of his hometown fans.

Despite a first turn crash in the final 250 Class moto of the day, Pourcel battled his way to the front portion of the field to finish fifth and in the end, salvaged the overall victory by virtue of a first moto win to take the early-season points lead.

Christophe Pourcel says:"I was surprised to get the overall," said Pourcel. "I fell in the second moto and just rode as good as I could to get a good finish. It’s good for the championship and I will go to High Point next weekend and try to win again."

Pourcel led the way to a Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki and international sweep of the podium as Tyla Rattray, of South Africa, tied a career-best second overall and rookie Dean Wilson, of Canada, captured the best career finish of his young career in third.

The Women’s Motocross Championship hosted its second round of the 2010 season as well with opening round winner Jessica Patterson remaining undefeated on the season, sweeping both motos on her way to the win for DNA Shred Stix/Star Racing Yamaha.

The Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship continues next weekend from Mt. Morris, Pa., for round three and the Rockstar Energy High Point National from High Point Raceway on June 12.
