The 2013 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, made its lone visit to Minnesota on Saturday for the ninth round of the season from Millville’s Spring Creek MX Park. With temperatures cooler than usual in the Midwest, the Red Bull Spring Creek National produced plenty of exciting race action for the 31st annual event.
After a five-year winning streak at Spring Creek, Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey missed the center of the podium on Saturday. However, a Moto 2 win in the 450 Class gave Dungey’s hometown fans a reason to cheer for the Minnesota native. In the end, it was Yoshimura Suzuki’s James Stewart who captured the overall win at the Red Bull Spring Creek National, his first of the 2013 season.
