MX Sports Pro Racing, organizers of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, along with its partners at Alli Sports, a division of the NBC Sports Group, wish to congratulate Ryan Dungey and Red Bull KTM on their historic efforts in securing the 2015 Monster Energy Supercross 450SX Class Championship. Dungey clinched the championship with three races remaining this past Saturday inside NRG Stadium, in Houston, by virtue of a runner-up finish. It marks Dungey’s second career Monster Energy Supercross title and the first premier class title for KTM in the sport’s 42-year history. 

“Ryan [Dungey] has always been a hard worker, a great rider and a class act,” said Davey Coombs, President of MX Sports Pro Racing. “We’ve been fortunate enough to know Ryan and his family since his days of racing mini-bikes at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch [at the Rocky Mountain ATV/MC AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship] and have enjoyed watching him rise to the pinnacle of our sport over the last decade. He and his entire family, as well as the entire Red Bull KTM team, have worked long and hard over many years to become the champions they are.”

Dungey, who hails from Belle Plaine, Minnesota, previously won a Monster Energy Supercross 250SX Class West Region title in 2009 and the 450SX Class title in 2010, becoming the second rookie in history to do so. He also has a trio of Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championships to his credit, his first coming in 2009 in the 250 Class, followed by two additional titles in 2010 and 2012 in the 450 Class. He’ll look to become the sixth rider in Pro Motocross history to win a third 450 Class title this summer, the first since Ricky Carmichael did so in 2002.

MX Sports Pro Racing and NBC Sports would also like to congratulate Cooper Webb, his family and Yamalube/Star Racing Yamaha on clinching the 2015 West Region 250SX Class Championship as well in Houston, with one race remaining in West Region season. Webb wrapped up the title last Saturday night with his fifth main event win in seven races this season. It marks the first career professional title for Webb, who will enter his third season of 250 Class competition this summer, as well as the first supercross title for Star Racing, which broke through for its first Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship last season with Jeremy Martin. Webb’s achievement is also signifies the first supercross title for Yamaha since 2008.

“Cooper [Webb] and his family also came up through the ranks at Loretta Lynn’s, and we’ve known since his mini-bike days that he would someday succeed at the sport’s highest levels,” said Coombs of Webb, who hails from Morehead City, North Carolina. “He has grown into an extremely versatile athlete and, like Dungey, we wouldn’t be surprised if he earned a second 2015 championship by the time the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross season ends in August.” 

Webb finished third in the final 250 Class standings a season ago, breaking through for his first career professional win at his hometown race at Muddy Creek last June.

The Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship begins on May 16 with the GoPro Hangtown Motocross Classic near Sacramento, California. Tickets for the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship are available at
