Something special was in the air in New York this weekend. Great weather, strong attendance, excellent racing, and returning stars made for an action packed event. While Ryan Dungey extended his points lead even further, much of the focus was on the potential battle that he and James Stewart might have. The much anticipated fight never materialized, as Dungey checked out in the first moto and although Stewart was able to climb to second, he was never able to mount a serious threat. In the second outing, Dungey and Clemente Desalle stole the show, while Stewart had a mediocre start and eventually pulled out due to fatigue and the related safety concerns that brings. The 250 Class served up some fantastic battles as always. Although Christophe Pourcel holds the points lead, his first moto DNF and Trey Canard’s fourth win in a row now have him leading by a mere 16 points. The series has another weekend off before riders take to the sand at the infamous Motocross 338 in Southwick, Mass.
