Round 10 of Monster Energy Supercross from Indianapolis was played out on a super technical track that was very unforgiving in many places. Ryan Villopoto walked away with his third straight win, while on the other side of the table Ryan Sipes was picking up his first. After a long and treacherous Daytona course, things returned to normal in Indy with lap times back under the one-minute mark. Let's comb through the lap charts, brought to you by Motion Pro, to see how it all broke down.

James Stewart was mistake prone early in Indy, but he laid the wood down after a few early bobbles. The San Manuel Yamaha rider set the fastest lap of the night with a 48.295. While Stewart was visibly frustrated with his results in Indy, at least he can take solace in being the King of the Lap Charts.

There was no gift giving in Indy for Ryan Villopoto. The series points leader took the bull by the horns early and never let up en route to his third straight win. RV2 also set the second fastest lap of the night with a 48.433.

Earlier in the day Cole Seely told us that he had about three weeks to get adjusted to the 450. Well, I guess three weeks was all the kid needed because he tamed a very difficult track in Indy en route to a ninth-place finish. Coincidentally, he also set the ninth fastest lap of the night. Pretty solid for his first dance in the big show.

Justin Barcia was on fire at Indy setting the fastest lap of the night with a 49.519. Another interesting fact is that he also set the best average lap mark with a 50.746, yet he came up just shy of capturing victory.

Speaking of Ryan Sipes, after a long, tough journey, the likable kid from Kentucky finally reached the pinnacle of Supercross by grabbing his first career SX victory. He also set the second fastest lap of the night with a 49.557 aboard his DNA Shred Stix Yamaha.

Mistakes continue to pile up for Nico Izzi. The Michigan native has had a rough go of it this season, but has continuously shown top speed in practice and the main, but can't seem to keep the mistakes under wraps long enough for a top finish. But if this kid can figure out how to capitalize on his speed, watch out because he could he a top-five threat soon.
