Dungey claims first AMA Motocross title
DELMONT, Pa. -- Ryan Dungey wrapped up his first AMA Pro Motocross Championship season title Saturday, finishing second in both 250 Class motos in the American Motocross Festival at Steel City Raceway.
Dungey, the Rockstar/Makita/Suzuki rider from Belle Plaine, Minn., finished nine points ahead of France's Christophe Pourcel, the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki star who swept the motos Saturday. Dungey also won the AMA Supercross title this season.
Tommy Hahn, the Canidae/Motosport/Kawasaki rider from Decatur, Texas, became the seventh first-time winner of the season in the 450 Class, winning his first career moto en route to the victory.
In the WMX Class season finale, Honda Red Bull Racing's Ashley Fiolek, from St. Augustine, Fla., won her second straight title despite missing the final moto of the day. GEICO Powersports Honda's Jessica Patterson, from Tallahassee, Fla., won her third race in a row to finish second.
