NEW BERLIN, N.Y. -- Ryan Villopoto raced to his sixth Lucas Oil Pro Motocross victory of the season Saturday, sweeping the 450 class motos in the Unadilla Nationals.

Villopoto, the Monster Energy Kawasaki star from Poulsbo, Wash., extended his series lead to 44 points over Ryan Dungey.

"The highlight of the day was definitely getting two holeshots and to be able to get two clean starts out front," Villopoto said. "I really enjoyed the track. It has a lot of line choices and it's honestly becoming one of my favorite tracks because you can go fast and take completely different lines than other people."

Justin Barcia was second overall, finishing fourth in the first moto and second in the second.

Points leader Eli Tomac, the GEICO Honda rider from Cortez, Colo., swept the 250 motos for his fifth victory of the season.
