Daytona Racer X Recap

March 9, 2014

Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto moved one step closer to history following a dominating performance at round 10 of Monster Energy Supercross at Daytona International Speedway. Heading into the event, the three-time and defending champion held a 23-point lead over Ryan Dungey in his quest to join Jeremy McGrath as the only riders to achieve four consecutive premier class titles. Villopoto tamed the notoriously rough Daytona circuit en route to an impressive win—his first since round 4 in Oakland—increasing his lead to 28 over Dungey. Villopto was a force under the lights, as he opened a sizable gap on the field early in the race. Meanwhile, Ryan Dungey, second in points entering the night, was left in a tight battle for podium position with Wilson, and eventually teammate Ken Roczen. Ryan Villopoto went unchallenged en route to his third victory of the season.
