The third round of the 2012 AMA Pro Motocross Championship was played last Saturday night at the renowned Lakewood race track of Thunder Valley National, Denver, Colorado. It was an extravagant affair which was completely sold out. The stadium ran full houses and the atmosphere therein was completely electric. There was some amazing display of racing talents on that particular eve. It was a night to celebrate for the Red Bull KTM racing team and the GEICO Honda racing team as they were able to clinch victory in the 450cc and the 250cc Class matches respectively. Ryan Dungey of team Red Bull KTM won the 450cc Class match while Justin Barcia of team GEICO Honda registered a win in the 250cc Class match.
With a convincing win in the 450cc Class match, Ryan Dungey has now climbed up to the top of the 2012 Motocross standings leaving behind Jake Weimer and James Stewart. Dungey now has 136 points under his belt while Weimer has 101 points and Stewart 100 points. Jake Weimer too had an impressive run in the event and finished at an overall second position. This helped him to crawl up to the second spot in the points table.
In the 450cc Class event, Ryan Dungey displayed and amazing performance on the race track. In the moto-I race, he went of the off to an amazing start and gained good speed too.
