Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Stat Report: Unadilla

Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing
Series Statistical Report


Red Bull Unadilla National
Unadilla - New Berlin, N.Y. - August 18

Unadilla was a part of the inaugural Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship in 1972.

Unadilla has some of the most uniquely-named obstacles in the country like the Gravity Cavity, the Wall, and the Skyshot.

With over 40 years of hosting world-class motocross racing, Unadilla is one of the sport's most historic venues and was recognized as such when it hosted a "Retro National" during the 2009 season.

A total of 11 different winners have stood atop the Unadilla podium across the 450 and 250 Classes over the last six seasons - six in the 450 Class and five in the 250 Class.

For the last four seasons, the rider to win at Unadilla in the 450 Class has also gone on to win the championship. This has happened in three of the last four seasons in the 250 Class.

Unadilla has been good to international riders recently in the 250 Class, with foreign-born competitors winning in three of the last five seasons.

Ryan Dungey is enjoying a seven-round overall winning streak, winning 12 of the last 14 motos.

If Dungey gains 15 points on Mike Alessi on Saturday, he will claim his second 450 Class title in three seasons.

Dungey has won 36 of the 66 motos he's entered in his 450 Class career (54%), claiming the overall in 21 of 33 races (63%). He already sits alone in fourth on the all-time wins list, just one victory away from tying Rick Johnson for third all time.

Comparatively, through his first 33 career 450 Class races, Ricky Carmichael captured 25 overall victories.

Carmichael also earned 1,475 career points through the first 33 races of his 450 Class career, while Dungey has amassed 1,487 over that same span.

Dungey is the only rider in the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship to finish on the podium in every moto. His worst result was third in the first moto of the season.

Mike Alessi has finished on the overall podium in seven of the nine rounds and currently sits second on the championship as a privateer. He also has one moto win.

Blake Baggett has the most wins in the 250 Class with four. However, he sits fourth in laps led. Justin Barcia has led the most laps, and has two overall wins.

Since Washougal in 2009, all overall victories in the 250 Class have been won by either Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki or GEICO Honda, creating the sport's most prominent team rivalry. Kawasaki has prevailed 25 times, compared to Honda's 12 victories. This season, Honda has five victories while Kawasaki has four.

Pro Circuit has produced five different winners in that span, compared to three for Factory Connection.

Jake Weimer leads all competitors in passing an average of 5.6 riders a moto. Eli Tomac and Wil Hahn aren't far behind, leading the 250 Class with 5.0 passes per moto each.
