This was Trey Canard’s dad’s signature trick back in the day.
Justin Brayton waves to the Detroit crowd.
Ryan Dungey is always a crowd favorite.
Aaron Plessinger charges to the front of the pack.

After having to watch his title hopes take a serious hit by missing Toronto due to Visa issues, Martin Davalos salvaged a 5th place. He now sits 5th in points.
With each passing week Marvin gets closer to his teammate and training partner, Ryan Dungey.
After the checkers flew, Jason Anderson thought he had finished second behind Ryan Dungey. It wasn’t until a short time afterward that he found out Ryan was docked two positions by the AMA due to jumping on a red cross flag. As a result, Anderson captured his second win of the season.
R.J. Hampshire made his way to 7th in the main.
Malcolm Stewart captured his first victory of the season and is now the points leader.
Trey Canard has not had the season he imagined, but he’s still inside the top ten in the standings.
Kenny Roczen is second in points. Ryan Dungey is 39 points ahead, and Jason Anderson is 14 points behind Roczen in third.

Cole Seely is currently 6th in points. His results have dropped off after the series headed East. Seely blew over a berm on the opening lap of the main in Detroit and had to come from way behind. He managed 11th.
Marvin Musquin clicks his heals after winning the 45o semi. Marvin wasn’t so jovial in the main. He crashed with two laps to go and Jason Anderson shot by for second…or so everyone thought. Instead Anderson was gifted the win due to Dungey’s blunder, while Musquin was oh-so-close (yet again) to winning his first 450 Supercross. In due time.
