Red Bud Track ‘n Trail
450 Moto 1 – the leader on the first lap, Andrew Short! Followed by Ben Townley. Townley moves quickly past Short and into the lead on the first lap. As they start the second lap, it’s Townley up front, Short second, Ryan Dungey third, Chad Reed fourth, and Josh Grant is fifth.
15 minutes into the race, on lap eight, with the top guys running lap times in the 2 minute 17 second range, it’s Townley leading, Short in second, followed by Ryan Dungey, Chad Reed, Brett Metcalfe, and Josh Grant.
On lap ten, Dungey has gone past Short. It’s Townley leading, Dungey up to second, then Short, Reedy is next, Brett Metcalfe, and Josh Grant running sixth. The top guys are running very close …
Townley is leading, but just barely over Dungey! And Reed is right behind the two of them now! The top three are very close! Townley and Dungey are battling each other, passing each other … and Reed has a close up view of the two of them!
Dungey and Townley are putting on one of the best races of the season … and you can throw Reed into the mix as well. As the last lap approaches, it can be any one of them taking the win …. but leader Ben Townley goes down with less than a lap to go! And Reed falls as well! Ryan Dungey takes the win in the most exciting race of the season so far! Chad Reed up for second, Andrew Short finishes third. Townley gets back up to fourth, Brett Metcalfe fifth, Josh Grant sixth. Then it’s Kyle Regal, Ryan Sipes, Nick Wey, Mike Alessi tenth.
250 Moto 1 – the first turn leader is Christophe Pourcel! And Pourcel is making it look easy. He is out front and leading … and is in complete control. Looks fast, and smooth.
On lap six, Pourcel smoothly out front, team-mate Tyla Rattray is second, Justin Barcia is third, Jake Weimer fourth, and Dean Wilson has moved up to fifth.
Not a lot of passing up front, but you have to admire Pourcel – he just does what’s needed … and wins. So, with about ten minutes left to go in this 30 minute plus two lap race, it’s Pourcel first, Rattray second, Barcia third, Weimer in fourth, Dean Wilson fifth. (Four of the top five are Pro Circuit racers)
Weimer and Tickle tangle and go down … Weimer won here last year, and was looking at regaining the form he had earlier in the season in winning the 250 West Supercross Championship. At the two lap to go mark, it’s Pourcel out front, Rattray is second, Barcia third, Wilson fourth.
At the finish, making it look easy … Christophe Pourcel with the win! Tyla Rattray takes second. Then it’s Dean Wilson third. Pro Circuit top three! Fourth is a good ride thru the pack for Trey Canard, then Justin Barcia fifth, Blake Wharton next, followed by Broc Tickle, D Durham, N Izzi, Davalos, Weimer, and Tomac 12th.
450 Moto 2 – it’s Suzuki’s Ryan Dungey with the holeshot! Running second is Andrew Short. And Short passes Dungey on the first lap to take over the lead!

On lap three, Dungey passes Short and moves into the lead. Townley passes as well. It’s Dungey, Townley, Short, fourth is Chad Reed … then Metcalfe, Mike Alessi, and Kyle Regal.
On lap seven, it’s Dungey still out front, followed by Townley, Chad Reed now third, then Short, Metcalfe, Regal, and Alessi.
On lap eight, Reed passes Townley and moves into second! Now it’s Dungey first, Reed second … Townley, Short, Metcalfe, Regal, Alessi, and Josh Grant eighth.
Dungey is cruising out front. Reed is alone in second. Then Townley, Metcalfe, Short, Regal, Grant, Alessi … there is about seven minutes left in this race.
And this race is over – Ryan Dungey has won this moto … the overall victory … and extends his series points lead as well!

450 winner Ryan Dungey said “I think the championship is what we’re going for overall in the end. There’s still a lot of racing left. I just need to be on top of my game every single moto. Today was really competitive. Chad Reed and Ben Townley were right there so I had to really dig deep. The fans are great out here. They’re what it’s all about at RedBud. They just make everything really enjoyable.”
250 MX winner Trey Canard said “This win has been 3 years coming. To be here and win is amazing, especially at RedBud in front of these fans. It’s just awesome. I didn’t want to have to make a hard pass on Dean Wilson for the win, but I really wanted it. These motocross races haven’t been easy for me in the past. I wanted to get it done and I wanted to get it done today.”
