MILLVILLE, Minn. -- On Saturday, Ryan Dungey won his fifth consecutive victory of the summer at the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship at Spring Creek.
Dungey, who's from Belle Plaine, Minn., swept both 450 Class races on Saturday, the seventh stop of the season.
"I enjoy coming back [to Spring Creek]. I spent a lot of time riding here as kid," said Dungey. "To get a win was great, not just for me but the team as well, especially since everyone was here to watch. I approach every race the same as the one before, regardless of points."
Dungey increased his lead in the 450 Class overall season standings to 80 points over Mike Alessi, who took second. Jake Weimer got third at Spring Creek.
Added Dungey, "There's a lot of racing left and you have to be ready for each race itself. We just come in and hope to accomplish what we want to accomplish, always looking to improve."
In the 250 Class, Eli Tomac beat out Justin Barcia and Blake Baggett for the top spot. This is Tomac's third win of the season.
"That first moto was a barn burner, we all just went at it," Tomac said. "I needed some better starts and I got those this weekend. Blake and I were going at it [in the second moto], but he made a mistake. I was kind of lucky he fell where he did. I just took it from there."
The 2012 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship continues July 21, with round 8 at Washougal MX Park in Washougal, Wash., and the Peterson CAT Washougal National.
