2012 Ryan Dungey Wallpaper

Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey has been unstoppable during his first year aboard the SX-F in the 2012 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing.

The Minnesota native has won nine out of 11 rounds so far this year, his latest feat arriving at Steel City Raceway in Delmont, Pa., last Saturday. Two weeks before Steel City, Dungey secured the AMA MX title at Unadilla.

And Dungey dominated Steel City with a sweep of both motos. In moto 1, Dungey grabbed the holeshot aboard the KTM SX-F 450, and went on to lead every lap. He would take the win by over 30 seconds ahead of Honda’s Andrew Short and Motoconcepts Suzuki’s Mike Alessi.

The second moto was much different, though. Dungey crossed the line in fourth after the first lap, and worked his way pass Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Jake Weimer on the second lap. Two laps later, Dungey passed Jeff Ward Racing Kawasaki’s Josh Grant.

Dungey then began chasing down the leader, Alessi. The two battled, and although Dungey suffered a slight bobble, he finally passed Alessi on the 10th lap. Dungey then lead the remaining four laps to take the Moto 2 win at Steel City.

Joining Dungey on the overall podium was Alessi (3-2) and Grant (4-4).

Ryan Dungey (Red Bull KTM SX-F 450) says: “It feels great to come out here and win both motos today. I had to work hard to make the pass for the lead in the second moto and take the win. I had a lot of fun here and appreciate all of the fans that cheered me on today. I am looking forward to the final round at Lake Elsinore next weekend.”
