Daytona is as brutal as they come and it’s for that very reason why the winners of the prestigious event are a who’s who of the sport. Last Saturday night, a pair of familiar faces with past success at the World Center of Racing stood atop the podium. With this big test now out of the way for the world’s best riders, the 2014 Monster Energy Supercross season now hits the home stretch and, unfortunately for the 450SX Class field, time is not on their side as they look to track down Ryan Villopoto.

Each week, The Holeshot will provide 22 takeaways – a full starting gate – from the most recent round of action.

It’s been a tough road thus far, but Ryan Dungey finally broke through for his first win of the season in Indy.

Who would have thought that the track conditions inside a domed stadium would be more difficult than one outside? Well, so far in three visits to domed stadiums the riders of Monster Energy Supercross have had to compete on arguably the three most difficult tracks of the season. Last weekend in Indy proved to the one of the toughest tests of many riders’ career and fittingly enough, the race produced wild moments and a shakeup in the championship.

Each week, The Holeshot will provide 22 takeaways – a full starting gate – from the most recent round of action.
