Atlanta Dream: Who was due?
My bad. I said Josh Hill was due for a win; I meant RYAN DUNGEY (5), of course! Numba 5 got himself a big one, his third of the year, at just the right time and in just the right place: the Georgia Dome, the scene of his very first professional win at his very first professional supercross waaaaay back in 2007. It was a huge win for the Rockstar superstar, as he entered the race tied in championship points, but left with a 20 point lead. Dungey fully capitalized on rival Ryan Villopoto's (2) trip over the handlebars while running in second place late in the 450cc main event.
By the looks of this GuyB photo, supercross motorcycles never actually touch the ground, they just fly around the track.
