Dungey, Martin fastest in practice at Muddy Creek

By Shawn Smith, ProMotocross.com


Ryan Dungey was the Bud Light Fastest Qualifier in the 450 Class, which shouldn't come as much of a surprise. One of the most impressive efforts, though, came from RCH Suzuki's Broc Tickle. One week after his best race of the season (5-5 moto finishes, fourth overall at Thunder Valley), Tickle had the fastest lap time in the first practice session of the morning and ended up fourth overall in qualifying. Will he carry momentum into today's motos for another strong outing?

JGR's Phil Nicoletti qualified tenth but had a hard crash during the second practice session. Although he walked off under his own power, Nicoletti opted to ride away in a cart. You can find the video of the crash below.

Making his season debut this weekend, Ryan Sipes qualified 16th.

In the 250 Class, points leader Jeremy Martin set the fastest lap in both sessions.
