ATLANTA (AP) - Ryan Dungey raced to his fifth 450SX victory of the season, winning the Monster Energy AMA Supercross race Saturday night at the Georgia Dome.

Dungey of Red Bull KTM took the checkered flag by just over 4 seconds ahead of teammate Marvin Musquin, with Chad Reed of Monster Energy/360fly/Chaparral/Yamaha Factory Racing finishing third.

It was Dungey’s fifth win in eight races and his third at the Georgia Dome. It was also KTM’s first 1-2 finish with Dungey and Musquin, and was the manufacturer’s first since the opening race of the 2014 season.

Dungey extended his lead in the 450SX Class standings to 33 points over RCH Soaring Eagle/Jimmy Johns/Suzuki Factory Racing’s Ken Roczen, who had won two of the last three races.

In the opening race of the Eastern Regional 250SX Class Championship, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Martin Davalos earned his first win since the 2013 season.
