Ryan Villopoto won the Monster Energy AMA Supercross race in Toronto on Saturday night and inched closer to the lead in the Supercross standings.
Villopoto won his fifth race of the season and his fourth in the past five races. He won the race in Daytona, Fla., last week. He also won at Angel Stadium on Feb. 13 and in Indianapolis the following week.
With the win at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Villopoto trails Ryan Dungey, the leader in the Supercross standings, by 17 points after the 10th race of the 17-race AMA Supercross schedule.
“I really wouldn’t be in this position without all of my team and everyone involved,” said Villopoto. “The last couple weeks we’ve been on it and it’s what we need to do. (The racing is) close and it’s been tough. I need to make up ground and I got to make those passes quick. I (also) need to keep getting good starts.”
Dungey finished second in the Toronto race, followed by Trey Canard in third.
Josh Hill, a rider from Murietta, is third in the Supercross standings. He finished in sixth in the race in Toronto.
The AMA Supercross Series will be at the new Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on Saturday night.
