Ken Roczen holds off Ryan Dungey in AMA Supercross in Texas

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Ken Roczen held off Ryan Dungey to win the Monster Energy AMA Supercross race Saturday night at AT&T Stadium for his second 450SX victory of the year and sixth overall.

Roczen, the Suzuki rider from Germany, led all 20 laps in the main event. He cut Dungey's points lead to 23 after seven races.

"It felt great to grab the holeshot tonight. I think we have more wins than we do holeshots," Roczen said. "Ryan was right on us the entire race, but we stayed tough and brought home the win."

Dungey has four victories this season. The Red Bull KTM factory rider has won or finished second in 18 straight races and reached the podium in 23 events in a row.

"At the end of the race we were pushing the pace," Dungey said. "I made a pass for the lead, but Ken got me back exactly where I passed him. To leave with good points and finish second is something to be proud of."

Husqvarna's Jason Anderson was third, followed by Honda's Cole Seely, Kawasaki's Eli Tomac and KTM duo of Marvin Musquin and Davi Millsaps.

Yamaha's Cooper Webb won the Western Regional 250SX to regain the season lead. He has four victories in the first seven races.

Honda's Christian Craig was second, followed by Husqvarna's Zach Osborne.

"I came out of the gate strong and tucked to the inside through the first turn," Webb said. "Throughout the race I was slowly able to gain time on Christian, eventually making a pass stick to claim the win."

Kawasaki's Joey Savatgy, the points leader entering the race after winning two of the last three events, fell early and finished 10th. He dropped to second in the standings, 11 points behind Webb.
