The opening round of the 12-race 2014 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Series began Saturday at Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, Calif., which returned to the schedule after a four-year hiatus.

And before more than 27,000 MX fans, riders from Minnesota took wins in their perspective classes – Ryan Dungey in 450, and Jeremy Martin in 250.

In Moto 1, Dungey rounded the first corner in fourth behind Red Bull KTM teammate Ken Roczen. Both KTM SX-F 450 pilots passed Yamaha’s Phil Nicoletti, and began chasing Josh Grant, also on a Yamaha. But the riders wouldn’t be able to catch Grant, who took the win. Roczen would finish second and Dungey third.

Roczen took the holeshot in the second moto, with Dungey in tow. The two immediately pulled away from the grid, and with four laps remaining, things got intense. Dungey put the pressure on Roczen, and would make his passing move with three corners to go, taking the checkered flag ahead of Roczen. Taking third was Honda’s Trey Canard.

Dungey took the overall win with a 3-1 finish, ahead of Roczen (2-2) and Canard (7-3).

“The track was really tough today,” says Dungey. “The crew did a great job prepping it but it definitely got to be one-lined in the second moto. It was hard to make a pass and that is why it took so long for me to challenge for the lead. I’m really happy with my result today and hope to carry this momentum to Hangtown.”

In the 250 Class, Yamalube/Star Racing/Yamaha’s Jeremy Martin took his first career victory with a 1-1 sweep. Joining him on the overall podium was teammate Cooper Webb (2-2) and Honda’s Cole Seely (4-4).

The 2014 Motocross Series now heads to Rancho Cordova May 31 for the Hangtown Motocross Classic.
