Red Bull KTM Factory rider Ryan Dungey continued his charge in the tenth round of the 2015 US Supercross Championship, picking up his first-ever Daytona Supercross victory to extend the championship lead by 40 points. Teammate Marvin Musquin was the winner in the fourth round of the 250-class East Coast series to hold onto the red plate. Musquin has now had three victories and one second-place podium.

Dungey was placed in the second heat race where he grabbed the holeshot and led every lap to take an easy win and have first gate pick for the main event. He was third at the start of the main, with BTO Sports/KTM rider Andrew Short the winner of the holeshot. Dungey quickly began to pressure the second place ride of Cole Seely. After battling in the early laps they engaged in an aggressive move on the fifth lap when they went into the same line around the corner. They banged bars through the berm and while Dungey stayed upright, Seely fell in the turn and Dungey advanced to second.

He then quickly moved onto to the rear wheel of Short and pressured for the lead. As they crossed the finish line after the eighth lap, Dungey came in quickly on Short and passed him on the outside around the next corner to take over the lead. Once out front, Dungey concentrated on stretching his lead and by the halfway point he had already accrued a 10-second lead.

Dungey then put down the hammer on his KTM 450 SX-F Factory Edition and clicked off flawless laps to collect his first career win at Daytona. Together with Musquin’s win in the 250-class, Dungey made it another Red Bull KTM podium sweep.

“It feels good to get my first-ever Daytona win,” stated Dungey. “The bigger picture is obviously focusing on the championship, but to get the win feels even better. We had to do a lot changes to the bike prior to this race since it is different than normal Supercross racing and all of the changes were for the good. My bike worked great and I am happy to take this win.”

Musquin Wins Daytona Supercross
Red Bull KTM Factory rider Marvin Musquin was happy to fulfill a boyhood dream by winning at Daytona in the East 250 Supercross class and was the man to watch all day as he put down fast times in each practice session.

He was then placed in the first heat race where he took the holeshot on his KTM 250 SX-F Factory Edition and led the entire race. His victory by three seconds gave him top gate pick in the main event where he pulled another massive holeshot and led the riders around the first lap. He continued to put time on the field each lap as he rode a mistake-free race. By the halfway point he was eight seconds in front and lapped up to thirteenth place to cross the line for his third win of the season, marking the occasion with his signature heel-clicker across the finish.

“When I was younger, winning Daytona in the US was a dream of mine,” stated Musquin. “To win today for the second time in my career makes me so happy. This track was so much fun and I’m having a good time battling for this championship. My fitness is good and I’m not tired after putting in a hard fifteen laps and that feels good.”
