“The 2016 Monster Energy Supercross Series headed to Indianapolis, Indiana, for the 13th round of the season held at Lucas Oil Stadium. After heading to the West Coast for a round, we’re back on the East Coast grind in Indy, which is known for its soft dirt, and this year was no exception with one of the most rutted courses in recent memory. Lucas Oil Stadium is one of the best stadiums on the circuit, although I may be a little biased because Indy is my hometown. Feld finally decided to have open pits starting last year, and it’s quickly grown in popularity as I could hardly walk through the pits the entire day. I was blown away by how many fans braved the cool weather to see their favorite SX stars.  The course layout wasn’t super technical, but coupled with the gnarly ruts that formed throughout the day, almost everyone had some trouble at one point or another.  Ken Roczen had an amazing battle with Ryan Dungey until a small mistake in the deep ruts forced him to miss the finish line double as Dungey jumped it and never looked back.  Ohio native Aaron Plessinger has had great success in Indiana, first with the GNCCs and then winning the Ironman National last year, but in Indy he stepped it up even further with his first SX win in front of a lot of family and friends.  Plessinger and Malcolm Stewart are in the thick of the championship battle now after Jeremy Martin DNFed following a hard get off and now sits 28 points behind Stewar with four rounds remaining.  See you at the races!” —TWMX photographer Ryne Swanberg
