Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey won his second race of 2012 AMA Supercross Saturday evening in Georgia Dome, Atlanta.Besides being Dungey’s second win, it was also KTM’s second win in AMA Supercross history. But it wasn’t a runaway race for the Minnesota native. Dungey got out of the gate quickly, making it to second at turn one behind American Honda Muscle Milk’s Cole Seely.After reeling in Seely, Dungey made the pass stick on lap eight of 20. Dungey pulled away from the field, but then ran into lap traffic. This made for a great race during the final two laps between Dungey and the reigning AMA Supercross Champion Ryan Villopoto (Monster Energy Kawasaki).Dungey would hold off Villopoto’s charge, though, to take the win. Joining Dungey on the podium was Villopoto and JGRMX Yamaha’s James Stewart, respectively.Ryan Dungey (Red Bull KTM SX-F 450) says: “This was such a great way to end the week. After seven weeks I finally got to return to the east coast and train at home. It was great to just have some time to myself and my normal training routine.“I came into this race feeling confident and refreshed and it all paid off today. My team did an amazing job on my KTM and we had no issues today just a really great race. Thanks again to the Red Bull/KTM Team and my family for their constant support.”With his Atlanta SX win, Dungey moves back into second place, trailing Villopoto by 10 points. This Saturday the Supercross series heads to Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis for round nine of 17.Attached above is wallpaper highlighting the KTM rider’s efforts in Atlanta; for a race review, click here.Click motorcycle thumbnail to expand.
