Monster Energy AMA – Indianpolis 2014 | Winners Losers

We’ve passed the point in the 2014 Monster AMA Supercross season and just as the was starting to look a little heated, and racers were settling into their the opening lap of Round 9 at Lucas Oil in Indianapolis turned everything on Let’s see who won and who lost.

Ryan Red Bull KTM. Dungey is on a third podium in the past races, and finally got the monkey off his with a win. Yes, Villopoto, James Stewart, and Ken went down early on lap one and had to back all race, but Dungey has had of his own this season. He got around artist Mike Alessi on Lap 4, pulled out a comfortable margin allowed him to ride his 450 SX-F the rest of the race.

At the checkers he had almost a seven-second over runner-up Eli Tomac. “We are halfway into the season and I’m gaining some points the championship,” Dungey said. “My is to remain consistent as you never what can happen with rounds remaining.” Win.

Eli GEICO Honda. Tomac had a result that looked the Tomac we were expecting in He got off the gate well and was into 3rd by the end of the lap. Although he didn’t get Mike Alessi until Lap 12 Alessi made a mistake and down, he kept his CRF450R on two on the technical track. “You had to be on toes and consistent the entire 20 because the track was so rutted and Tomac said. “It would some of the best guys in the look like they all that good, at least how it felt to me.” Though not in for the championship, it was good to see Tomac to form. Win.

Cole Seely. Team Muscle Milk. It was a smart from the Team Honda Milk folks, to tap West Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil/Honda 250 Seely as a fill-in for the two injured 450 – Justin Barcia and Trey Seely has been called to twice before – once in 2013 and 2012 – and it’s he is comfortable on the CRF450R. He put himself in a position early in the race and was to grab the last step on the when Alessi went

Seely has the ride through the two rounds, before returning to the West title chase, he sits just four out of 1st place. Seely’s first 450SX podium is not a bad way to spend mid-season break. Win.

Ryan Villopoto. Monster Kawasaki. How did Villopoto manage to go in the start straight pile up, in 17th place, and then end the extending his points lead by digits? “I found myself on the but if you’re going to be on the ground it it better when the rider you’re in the points battle is there as well,” said

It didn’t hurt that Stewart, then sitting 3rd in went down in another just around the corner in the turn. So, it was a matter of riding his through the pack and making the out of a bad night. When Villopoto on the box, he’s just a or two off.

Mike MotoConcepts Suzuki. Another night of riding for Alessi, with a holeshot and win in his Heat besting both Ryans, followed up with the Nuclear Holeshot in the Main. After passed by Dungey on Lap 4, he held off convincingly well for another laps before he got cross-rutted and down.

Unable to get his RM-Z450 started being passed by 10 riders Alessi had a disappointing 15th finish. Also, the Fox Sports 1 crew seemed to be cheerleading a bit for with Ricky Carmichael out of the Still, bouncing back last week’s controversy, was a Win.

Andrew Short. BTO KTM. Just after I had Short had staked out the mid-section of the with seven 9th or 10th finishes in eight races, he his 450 SX-F to a season’s best 6th finish. On a night that saw of riders down and almost making mistakes, Short up several things on his bike practice and it paid off.


Ken Roczen. Red Bull It just wasn’t Roczen’s It started with an extra six around Lucas Oil Stadium, as he did not directly out of his Heat and had to go the Semi. the German rider ended up on the at the end of the start straight in the Main.

remounted his 450 SX-F slowly, and making is way through the field. He got as far as 9th crashing on Lap 12 and retiring for the night. was just nine points series-leader Villopoto coming the night’s event, but has lost to Dungey, and leaves Lucas Oil in 3rd place, over a race


James Stewart. Suzuki. Having the fastest time and winning your doesn’t mean much at the end of the if you get caught in a pileup just the first turn that you with bent handlebars.

had to battle the gnarly rutted from 21st position, riding his RM-Z450 to a 7th place “I was right there in, I think, a start and then, boom, I was on the said Stewart. He lost a few on the night, and drops from 3rd to in the standings. He’s only points behind Roczen and behind Dungey, but reeling in is incrementally becoming harder.
