KTM Qualifies First in the Mini-Apple

Practice has concluded inside the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome with Ryan Dungey taking the top spot in the 450 class. It didn't come easy for the Red Bull KTM rider as he had to fight tooth and nail all the way to the end of the qualifying session with Ryan Villopoto and James Stewart. With all three riders posting times in the 49-second margin, expect to see some tight racing once the gate drops.

In the 250 class, Marvin Musquin took the top spot with a 50.031 lap time, which narrowly edged out Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Tyler Bowers and GEICO Honda's Wil Hahn. The Arenacross champ has been hard at work since Houston, and looks as if he could be the wrench in the gears of the two title contenders.

Will KTM grab their first win in Minneapolis tonight? Only time will tell...

Tonight’s race will NOT be live, so be sure to tune into CBS at 12pm Eastern Time for the 450 race, and 2pm Eastern Time on Fuel TV for both the 250 and 450 race. As always, follow @twmxdotcom on Twitter for live race updates.
