Eli Tomac’s season-ending injury a few weeks ago has left the door wide open for Ryan Dungey to win his third championship in the 450 Class. The Red Bull KTM rider has been victorious at the last two rounds and carries a 37-point lead into today’s High Point National.
RCH Suzuki’s Ken Roczen is by no means ready to concede the title though. The defending champion of the premier class, Roczen finally scored his first moto win of the season last week at Muddy Creek and is clearly improving after being hampered by a back injury at the start of the season. Despite the fact that Roczen only has just one moto win and no overall wins through four rounds, he has actually led five more laps than Dungey so far this year and should once again be in the mix up front.
In the 250 Class, the championship race has developed into a two-rider battle between Jeremy Martin and Marvin Musquin, as each rider has four moto wins apiece this season. Although they have yet to truly battle each other on the track, the two have constantly gone back and forth in the standings over the last few weeks.
Martin holds the red plate for the second week in a row, but his lead over Musquin is just six points. They were the two fastest riders in practice this morning, with Musquin edging his counterpart out by four-tenths of a second to earn the distinction of being the top qualifier.
