Villopoto Crashes In Lastest Supercross Race

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Ryan Dungey raced to his fifth Monster Energy AMA Supercross victory of the season Saturday night, overcoming an early wreck to hold off Kevin Windham in front of 59,882 fans at the Edward Jones Dome.
On lap nine, while trying to pass Dungey, Ryan Villopoto caused the two of them to crash. When they remounted, Villopoto moved into the lead and Dungey restarted third. After recapturing second place, Dungey set chase on Villopoto, but on lap 11, Villopoto had a hard crash and was unable to return to the race.
“It got really hectic out there tonight,” said Dungey, the Rockstar/Makita/Suzuki rider from Belle Plaine, Minn. “I had a great start so that was a huge help. We worked really hard this week to come out here in St. Louis prepared. It’s unfortunate that Ryan crashed. I hope he’s OK.”
Dungey leads the standings, 36 points head of Villopoto.
Geico Powersports/Honda’s Justin Barcia, from Ochlocknee, Ga., won the final race of the Eastern Regional AMA Supercross Lites season. Barcia finished second in the standings, 13 points behind Christophe Pourcel, the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki rider from Groveland, Fla.
