The Florida-based rider got off to a great start in the first race, slipping past Andrew Short on the second lap and then snapping at the heels of frontrunner Mike Alessi. Dungey eventually took the lead at the half-way mark and finished 20 seconds before his nearest rival.

Things got even better for Dungey in the second moto of the day. Alessi overtook him in the closing stages of the first lap, but Dungey was happy to play the waiting game and sat right behind Alessi until bursting through on the fifth lap. From there on in, Dungey built an unassailable lead that saw him finishing 22 seconds ahead of the second placed rider.
