Villopoto wins AMA Supercross race in Anaheim; Hill and Dungey tied for lead in standings

Ryan Villopoto won his second Monster Energy AMA Supercross race of the season. Josh Hill finished second for the fourth week in a row.
Round 6 of the AMA Supercross season at Angel Stadium on Saturday night ended with Hill and Ryan Dungey tied for first in the standings and Villopoto sitting in third, three points behind the leaders.
Villopoto led from start to finish and built a nearly six-second at one point in the race. His win pulled him well within striking distance of the lead in the AMA Supercross standings.
“It’s a good spot to be in going back East,” Villopoto said. “I can’t ask for anything more.”
Hill has five podium finishes in six races. His runner-up finish coupled with Dungey’s fourth-place finish, put the two riders tied for first in the AMA Supercross standings.
“I’m happy,” Hill said. “I’ve been on the box every week but one.”
After starting the season with three straight podium finishes, Dungey has not finished on the podium in his last three races.
Hill’s second-place finish at Angel Stadium might have been the most challenging.
“I didn’t ride good all day,” Hill said. “I’m happy with second. I’m just pumped to be up here.”
Kevin Windham finished third, followed by Dungey and Davi Millsaps in fifth.
