AMAMX: 2015 Pro Motocross Championship Statistical Report

Ryan Dungey race action shot

Motocross Media Press Release:

Over half of the 2015 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship is in the books and this weekend the series observes its second of three breaks in competition during the 12-round season. Only two races have commenced since the last break, but they've been eventful with the rain-drenched round at Budds Creek MX Park and the unpredictable, highly competitive racing in both classes at RedBud MX last weekend.

The championship will resume for the eighth round of competition next Saturday, July 18, with the annual visit to Minnesota's Spring Creek MX Park and the La Crescent Wine & Spirit Spring Creek National in Millville.

450 Class:

After waiting one week short of six years between overall victories, Joe Gibbs Racing's Autotrader.com/Toyota/Yamaha effort now has back-to-back wins with Justin Barcia. All three of its riders - Barcia, Weston Peick and Phil Nicoletti - all continue to hold spots inside the top 10 in points as well, each boasting at least one moto podium finish.

The 450 Class has four different winners through its first seven rounds - Eli Tomac, Ryan Dungey, Ken Roczen and Justin Barcia. Of this group only Roczen, the defending series champion, has yet to earn multiple wins.

Tomac, Dungey and Barcia each sit tied for the class lead in wins with two apiece.

Dungey is still the only rider in the 450 Class to earn every championship point for his brand in the manufacturer standings.

Dungey has finished on the podium in 12 of 14 motos this season and has just one finish outside the top 10.

Despite having twice as many Motosport.com Holeshot Awards as anyone else in the class with six, Barcia still has a higher starting average (5.2) than leader Dungey (4.3). At RedBud Barcia became the first rider this season to sweep the holeshots in both motos.

Injuries have forced all three Factory Honda riders - Cole Seely, Trey Canard and Eli Tomac - to the sidelines. Fill-in rider Freddie Noren has performed well in their absence, earning his career-best finish at RedBud in seventh overall, one day before his wedding. He is now the highest standing Honda rider in the 450 Class championship in 10th.

Despite having five overall wins between them, Red Bull KTM teammates Ryan Dungey and Marvin Musquin have yet to win on the same day in 2015. They swept victories during the winter FIM/AMA Supercross season on six different occasions.

Five of the six competing manufacturers are represented inside the top 10 in the 450 Class standings. Kawasaki's highest standing rider, Wil Hahn, currently sits 14th.

Hahn has earned back-to-back Battery Tender Ricky Carmichael Hard Charger Awards.

Despite not having raced for seven motos, Eli Tomac still has the most laps led in the 450 Class.

Jeremy Martin Race Action Shot

250 Class:

Jeremy Martin is the only rider in the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship to finish inside the top 10 in every moto this season.

The 250 Class points lead has switched hands between Martin and Marvin Musquin on four different occasions. Neither rider has carried the red number plate for more than two consecutive rounds.

Martin and Musquin have led over 70% of the laps run in 2015, and have won all but one moto thus far.

Both Martin and Musquin have two 1-1 sweeps to their credit this season.

All but one manufacturer, Suzuki, is represented inside the top 10 of the 250 Class standings. Suzuki has just one championship point to its credit thus far in 2015.

With Christian Craig's first ever moto podium finish at RedBud, a total of 12 different riders have now earned a podium finish in 2015.

Craig has the highest single moto finish of any Honda rider this season. He sits just 15 points outside the top 10 in the 250 Class standings, despite only racing five rounds this summer.

The Martin brothers - Alex and Jeremy - and Matt Bisceglia have passed more riders per moto in 2015 than any other Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship competitors.
