Ryan Dungey of Belle Plaine, Minn., won the 20-lap 450SX race in front of 48,846 fans on Saturday night at the Metrodome. He beat Ryan Villopoto for his second victory of the season in AMA Supercross’ return to Minneapolis after five years.

Dungey, a Red Bull KTM rider, took the lead from Villopoto on the 16th lap and ended Villopoto’s winning streak at five.

“Man, what a ride,” Dungey said. “Ryan and I put on a hard charge and he kept me honest the whole way. It’s been a while since I’ve been on top of box, but, man, in front of all these fans it was amazing.

“We could hear them out there. It was pretty loud, and I’ve never felt anything like it. This is amazing to win in front of the home crowd, and I never could have dreamed something like this.”

Wil Hahn finished second in the 250SX race but still remained in first in the East championship chase going into the final race in Las Vegas. He has a five-point lead over Frenchman Marvin Musquin who got his fourth victory Saturday.
