Budds Creek 450  Moto 1 Report

Budds Creek 450 Moto 1 Report

June 16, 2012 2:55pm

In 2010 Ryan Dungey won a remarkable 10 out of 12 overalls, and went unchallenged en route to his first 450 outdoor title. As the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship headed east down I-70 to Mechanicsville, Maryland, home of Budds Creek, and round five of the championship, the 2012 season is quickly looking like a mirror image of ’10.

Since James Stewart injured his wrist at Thunder Valley, Ryan Dungey has been on a tear going 1-1-1-1. But none of his victories looked as effortless as his moto one win at Budds Creek.

Justin Brayton, who up to this point in the season has been a major disappointment, grabbed the holeshot but in an instant was swallowed up by Dungey. From there it was all Ryan Dungey as he made it look way too easy en route to his fifth straight moto win.

Behind Dungey, Broc Tickle’s surprising run in the 450 class continued at Budds Creek. Tickle fought his way around Mike Alessi early to take over third and then set his sights on Brayton. A determined Tickle quickly made his way around Brayton and settled in from there—picking up a 450 career-best second place finish.

Brayton continued to drop anchor as he was quickly gobbled up by a charging Mike Alessi and Jake Weimer. After a barrage of quick hits from the likes of Tickle, Alessi and Weimer, Brayton was able to regain his composure and finish fifth in moto one. Andrew Short, Ryan Sipes, Brett Metcalfe, Davi Millsaps and Josh Grant would round out the top ten.
