Ryan Dungey, on his Yoshimura-prepped Suzuki RM-Z450, went into Saturday's race determined to stay atop the leader board where he was tied for first place. His bike has been spot-on in the power department, and his results throughout the night proved that. Dungey took second in his heat race, and he was ready to put on a show in the main event. At the start of the race, Dungey set to work picking off riders and moving up in position. After making a few key passes, Dungey sat in second spot behind the leader. With a technical track that allowed very little passing, Dungey finished the race in second and earned enough points to stay tied for the overall lead in the series.
