For the second-straight week, the Eastern Regional 250SX class has seen a first-time winner. It was supercross rookie Adam Cianciarulo with the win at the East opener in Texas last week, but this week it was 250SX veteran and fellow Monster Energy/Pro Circuit Kawasaki teammate Martin Davalos grabbing the W. He has won plenty of heat races and led many main event laps through the duration of his nine-year 250SX career, but has always been shy of winning a main event until tonight. His family had even traveled to America from Ecuador to watch this particular race, making his win that much more special.
450SX rookie Ken Roczen took his second career win tonight in the Georgia Dome. The former 250SX champion got a top-five start in the main event and capitalized on a mistake made by race leader Ryan Villopoto. Ryan Dungey wasn’t far off of the two riders’ mark, so any additional mistakes may have altered the outcome of the race. However, Roczen stayed consistent on the challenging track once he took command of the lead.
