The 2013 Pro Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, made its lone visit to Minnesota on Saturday for the ninth round of the season from Millville’s MX Park. With temperatures cooler than usual in the Midwest, the Red Bull National produced plenty of exciting race action for the 31st annual event.

After a five-year winning streak at Spring Creek, Red Bull KTM’s missed the center of the podium on Saturday. However, a Moto 2 win in the 450 Class gave Dungey’s hometown fans a reason to cheer for the Minnesota native. In the end, it was Yoshimura Suzuki’s who captured the overall win at the Red Bull Spring Creek National, his first of the 2013 season.

Danny Thompson, son of late motorsports innovator and entrepreneur , has launched a Kickstarter fundraising campaign to return his father’s 1968 , Challenger II, to the salt course at Bonneville with the intention of breaking the piston-driven world land speed record. Accomplishing that feat requires a speed of at least 450 mph, something Danny believes is possible with upgrades and improvements he and his team have been making to the original vehicle over the past two years.

“My dad was the first American to go over 400mph in a car, but he didn’t get the record. We’re going to fix that. The Challenger II had the potential in 1968, and it has the potential today.” – Danny Thompson
