Before 49,082 fans at the inaugural Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, at Cowboys Stadium, Oakley’s Ryan Dungey, won his fourth AMA supercross class main event.

Nick Wey opened the AMA Supercross class main event by winning the Spike Holeshot. Oakley’s Dungey quickly passed Wey for the lead by the end of lap one. After the first lap Yamaha’s Josh Hill, and Honda Davi Millsaps, trailed Dungey in second and third place.

Millsaps made his way around Hill on lap four to secure second place as Dungey extended his lead out front. Millsaps’ Honda Racing teammate Trey Canard made the pass for third place on lap nine. Canard spent the rest of the race stalking Millsaps for the next 11 laps but was unable to make the pass. Dungey held on for the win, Millsaps finished second and Canard finished third.

“This was a big win for me tonight, but there are still a lot of races left to go,” said Dungey. “The track got really rough tonight, so that kept me on my toes. I am looking forward to going to Jacksonville next weekend.”
