Red Bull Tennessee National Statistical Report

June 5, 2015 4:00pm | by:
  • Saturday's race will mark the third time the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship has visited Muddy Creek Raceway. The first stop was on June 1, 2013.
  • The round is the only southeast region stop of the championship.
  • The Third Annual Red Bull Tennessee National marks the championship's network television debut this season on NBC, with live second moto coverage of the 450 Class.
  • KTM is the only manufacturer to win in the 450 Class since the inaugural event in 2013.
  • Both Ken Roczen and Ryan Dungey will be lining up for the 450 Class on Saturday to try and become the first two-time winner at Muddy Creek.
  • Last year's 250 Class winner Cooper Webb, from Newport, North Carolina, has been sidelined with injury, so Frenchman Marvin Musquin is the only eligible 250 Class rider that can try and claim two victories at Muddy Creek.
  • Although the Pro Motocross Championship didn't make its first trip to Muddy Creek until 2013, the track has been hosting amateur motocross events since 1986.
  • In both classes, no rider has swept the motos for the overall win. Moto winners include Roczen, Dungey, and Ryan Villopoto in the 450 Class and Blake Baggett, Webb, Eli Tomac, and Roczen in the 250 Class.
  • Ken Roczen is the only rider to win motos in both the 450 and 250 Classes.
  • Eli Tomac, who had won five of the first six motos this season, will be sitting out the remainder of the season due to injuries sustained at Round 3 in Colorado.
  • Tomac had led 80 percent of the laps run in 2015 prior to his season-ending crash.
  • With Tomac's DNF in the second moto at Thunder Valley, Dungey and Baggett are now the only two riders in the 450 Class to finish inside the top 10 in every moto this season.
  • Jeremy Martin is the only 250 Class rider to finish inside the top 10 in each moto, overcoming a pair of starts outside the top 20 at Glen Helen.
  • Martin became the first rider in 2015 to sweep both Motosport.com Holeshot Awards on a single day.
  • Martin and Musquin are both tied with three moto wins apiece entering the fourth round.
  • Martin and Musquin have combined to lead 86 percent of the laps run in the 250 Class.
  • Christian Craig earned the Bud Light Fastest Qualifier in his first ever 250 Class start and narrowly missed out on the overall podium in fifth. It was his first race since July 26, 2014 when he finished 10th at Washougal in the 450 Class.
  • Heading into Thunder Valley, both the 450 Class and 250 Class standings featured a 19-point gap from first to second. Both of those deficits were erased and now three points or less separate each respective championship with a new points leader.
  • Five of the six participating manufacturers are represented in both the 450 and 250 Class standings. 450 Class - KTM, Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha and Husqvarna; 250 Class - Yamaha, KTM, Kawasaki, Husqvarna, Honda.
