The second half of the 2010 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship began on Saturday from one of the series’ most renowned facilities for the 28th  running of the Rockstar Energy Spring Creek National at Spring Creek Motocross Park. Thousands of enthusiastic great plains motocross fans packed the hillsides as local hero Ryan Dungey put his Rockstar/Makita Suzuki atop the 450 Class podium for the sixth straight race. Geico Powersports Honda’s Trey Canard captured the win in the 250 Class.

THE 450 CLASS

Much like the last five rounds, Dungey appeared to be rather comfortable running out front of the 450 class despite being a rookie in the elite division. He capitalized on a great start in moto one to take the lead on the eighth lap from Honda Red Bull Racing’s Kevin Windham and cruised to the win. In moto two, Dungey worked from just outside the top five off the holeshot to overtake Honda Red Bull Racing’s Andrew Short on the third lap to go on and win by over 39 seconds and sweep the day’s motos.

“To put the bike in a good spot off the start is really important,” said Dungey, who won at Spring Creek for the third consecutive season dating back to his time in the 250 class. “I got a great start in the first moto and a not so great start in the second moto, so I had to put in some consistent laps. I grew up riding at Spring Creek and I’ve definitely rode a lot here, but I haven’t really ridden it since I turned pro. I have only come here to race. The layout has changed every year, so I kind of look at it just like any other race. I got to know a lot of great people here so to come back and see them was great.”

In the 450 class, Andrew Short posted a pair of solid moto results to finish second overall (3-3) while Merge Racing Honda’s Kyle Regal tied a career-best finish in third (8-2). Defending class champion Chad Reed, of Australia, failed to finish the first moto and was scratched from moto two with an apparent neck injury. Dungey now holds an 89-point advantage heading over Short into next weekend’s eighth round from Washougal, Washington. He boasts the best average finish in the class at 2.2 and has led the most laps with 100.

THE 250 CLASS

After breaking through for his first career Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship victory at the previous round, Canard kept the momentum going with another strong effort. The third-year rider became just the second multiple-time winner in the 250 Class for 2010 while also becoming the second rider to win more than one moto this season with his 2-1 moto scores. “My comfort level and belief in myself went up,” said Canard, who raced to the Moto TWO win under heavy rain. “I came in more self relieved. When you come in like that you’re less nervous and it all comes easier. The effort I put in today was good for me. I’m just excited about what’s going on and I hope to keep the momentum going.”

250 class rookie and Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki rider Dean Wilson grabbed the runner-up spot (6-2) with his teammate Tyla Rattray rounding out the podium in third (4-4). Their teammate and current points leader Christophe Pourcel finished off the podium for the first time in 2010 in fifth (1-10). Pourcel’s advantage over Wilson in the championship standings sits at 32 points. The Frenchman also leads the class in laps led with 99 and an average finish of 2.9.
