BLOUNTVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Ryan Dungey won the Tennessee National on Saturday at Muddy Creek Raceway for his second straight Lucas Oil Pro Motocross victory.

Dungey won the first 450 Class moto and finished second in the second. The Red Bull KTM rider from Belle Plaine, Minnesota, also won the inaugural Tennessee event in 2013.

RCH Soaring Eagle Suzuki’s Ken Roczen was second overall. He won the second moto after finishing third in the first.

Dungey increased his lead in the season standings to 37 points over Roczen after four events.

“We put in two hard motos today and that’s what counts,” Dungey said. “We’ve got to keep pushing. There’s a lot of racing left and we need to give each moto our all.”

Dungey won the Thunder Valley National last week in Colorado after Eli Tomac crashed with the lead in the second moto. Tomac, the winner of the first two events of the year, will miss the rest of the season because of shoulder injuries.

Yamalube/Star Racing Yamaha’s Jeremy Martin raced to his third 250 Class victory in the first four events. The defending series champion was second in the first moto and won the second.

Red Bull KTM’s Marvin Musquin was second, winning the first moto and finishing fourth in the second.

Martin has a six-point lead over Musquin in the standings.
