Although he dropped a place in the 2011 AMA Supercross point standings after finishing fifth at Qwest Stadium, Seattle, Ryan Dungey is only seven points behind the series leader, Ryan Villopoto (Monster Energy Kawasaki).

And with two races remaining and 50 points up for grabs, Dungey has a chance to keep his AMA Supercross title.

As for Saturday night’s Supercross event, it occurred on a very technical track due to ruts formed by typical Seattle rains. Dungey was quick aboard the Rockstar Makita Suzuki RMZ450, but didn’t have much luck.

During his heat, he grabbed the holeshot, but would finish third. In the Supercross main, Dungey had a decent start in sixth, but fell down, which placed him in 14th by the end of the first lap.

In typical reigning Supercross champion style, Dungey made it up to fifth by halfway through the 20-lap race. Another bobble on the whoops on lap 11 would drop him to sixth, but he regained the fifth-place finish by the checkered flag.

Ryan Dungey (Rockstar Makita Suzuki RMZ450) says: “All in all, it was a pretty good night. I got off to a good start in my heat and ended up finishing third. My Rockstar Makita Suzuki team did a good job all day adapting the bike to the conditions.

“We made a few changes to my Suzuki before the Main; nothing too crazy – just a few suspension adjustments to adapt to the ruts. The track was really gnarly tonight. It ‘kinda wanted to just come up and bite you, especially by the end of the 20 laps. I got off to a decent start, but I fell down in the first lap and I think I was near last.

“But at that point, I just put my head down and tried to pick off as many guys as I could and was able to move up and finish fifth. Everyone did a great job today. My RM-Z450 ran great and my team adapted it well to this track. Going forward, we have a two-week break and then we’ll get into Salt Lake and will be ready to give it a hard push for the last two rounds.”
