TORONTO (AP) - Suzuki’s Ken Roczen won the Monster Energy AMA Supercross race at Rogers Centre on Saturday night for his third 450SX victory of the year.

“It was an awesome race. The conditions were tough and my bike worked flawlessly,” Roczen said. “This is my first win in Toronto, so let’s see if we can keep the ball rolling heading into Detroit next weekend.”

KTM’s Marvin Musquin was second, and teammate Ryan Dungey was third to break a tie with Chad Reed for the series record for consecutive podium finishes with 26.

“I had some time to make up on Kenny, but washed the front end while trying to make a push,” Dungey said. “From there, I did the best that I could and was able to come away with a podium.”

Dungey leads the season standings, 34 points ahead of Roczen.

KTM’s Justin Hill won the Eastern Regional 250SX race.

“This is a big deal for me. It’s been a while since I last won,” Hill said. “It was a very difficult track and I was lucky to get through the start clean and bring it home.”

Yamaha rider Jeremy Martin overcame a first-lap fall to finish second and take the season lead, two points ahead of Hill.

“The laps and hard work during the week paid off tonight,” Martin said. “We were able to move forward after the crash, which helped us leave with the red plate.”
