Ryan Dungey and Marvin Musquin both picked up their third consecutive Monster Energy AMA Supercross
wins of the season in Indianapolis, extending each of their point leads. Behind the KTM duo, Chad Reed and Eli Tomac had crashes, Cole Seely put on a impressive 2nd place charge, Trey Canard came from the back to grab third, and Josh Grant
continued to have an impressive east coast swing.
Indy proved to be the toughest track of the year! With crashes and flags everywhere... Kyle Peters
used a holeshot in his heat and sprinted early to ride his way to a 4th place finish putting him directly into the main. Mirroring Peters’ qualifying race success was Kyle Cunningham
who also grabbed a 4th place finish in his heat.
While Musquin took off for what was a pretty boring racing at the front, the excitement was provided by ONE Industries
teammates, Kyle Peters
and Kyle Cunningham
. And after finding each other at the beginning of the main, the two put on a charge together that saw Peters
grab another 7th place finish and Cunningham
grabbed a season best finish in 5th place!
continued his consistent ways by grabbing a 6th in his heat putting himself directly into the main. Starling
rode smart on the very beat up-technical track to snag a solid top 15 ride with a 14th. Starling hasn’t missed a main this season! Connor Elliott
finally got the good start he needed in the LCQ! Unfortunately, the race was red flagged shortly after the opening lap only to have a restart. Elliott
wasn't able to replica his first start and missed the main. After a couple routine heat races...the boys really came out swinging in the semis and LCQ!
Heath Harrison grabbed the holeshot and battle with Blake Baggett for a while until he and Kyle Partridge went at it with Phil Nicoletti. The two even spilt pass the JGR rider at one point to run 2-3! Partridge would hold onto 2nd and a trip to the main, but Harrison fell back to 6th and went to the LCQ where he just missed the main!
continued his impressive second half of the season with a wire-to-wire victory in the other semi and Nick Wey won the LCQ to join Grant and Partridge
in the main.
The main event was just as exciting for our guys, after a solid start, Josh Grant
rode near flawless to bring home his season best 7th place. The Two Two Motorsports
rider has seemingly found groove again landed himself in the top 10 for the majority of this recent east coast swing. Kyle Partridge
also grabbed a season best finish! The Rocky Mountain ATV/MC rider has impressed the industry all year long with his ability to make mains. The #199 has made eight mains for a 72.7% success
Once again Nick Wey
put in a smart ride under the radar for 14th. Wey is only getting better as what many are calling his last season rolls on. Maybe some of the biggest news of the night came for day qualifying… HRT Racing’s Vicki Golden
came within seven-hundredths of a second of qualifying for the night program.
will return next weekend to give it another try at Ford Field when the series heads to Detroit for Round 12.
