The air was electric in Atlanta as the main event gate dropped for Round 8 of the AMA Supercross series. Ryan Dungey, who went into the night tied for the series points lead, conducted the entire field of racers around the track for 20 laps and crossed the finish line first. The win gives the Rockstar Makita Suzuki rider some breathing room atop the standings.

Dungey, aboard his RM-Z450, put in consistent lap times throughout practice and his heat race. At the drop of the gate in the main event, Dungey shot out and got the holeshot and then began his race domination.

The win was Dungey’s third of the season, and he is now 20 points ahead of second place.

In the second race of the Eastern Regional Lites series, Austin Stroupe and his fuel-injected RM-Z250 put on a great show. Stroupe was in the chase the entire 15 laps, and he lead for a few laps before a mistake took him back a few positions.

Expect the Rockstar Makita Suzuki racers to be at the front of the pack in Round 9 of the AMA Supercross series, which takes place on Saturday, March 6, in Daytona Beach, Florida.
