Team Rockstar Makita Suzuki's Ryan Dungey and his Yoshimura-equipped Suzuki RM-Z450 were strong from the get go, with two solid practices that gave him the eighth gate pick for moto one. A great start put Dungey near the front, just behind teammate Metcalfe. He worked his Suzuki into second in lap two and made a charge for the lead, which he was able to grab in lap six. Dungey powered his RM-Z across the finish for the first 450 moto win of the year. In moto two, Dungey had another strong start, which put him in second place, and he was able to pass for the lead in lap six. Dungey fell back to second in lap eight and battled for the lead for the remaining laps but was unable to make the pass and finished second. His one-two moto finishes gave him a second-place overall for the day. Dungey is tied for the lead in the season points going into next weekend's event in Texas.
