ROCKSTAR MAKITA SUZUKI'S REED ON THE PODIUM FOR FINAL SUPERCROSS OF SEASON IN LAS VEGAS

Rockstar Makita Suzuki's Dungey brings home second in SX Lites

Rockstar Makita Suzuki Factory Racing finished up the 2009 AMA Supercross season with two podium finishes at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas on Saturday night – one in the Supercross class and one in Supercross LItes. In the former, two-time AMA Supercross Champion Chad Reed rode an impressive and aggressive race and finished up in second place in Las Vegas and also overall in the series. Reed celebrated an amazingly consistent year, capturing a podium finish at every race but one this season. Rockstar Makita Suzuki teammate Mike Alessi continued to dominate the starts on his RM-Z450 and again got the holeshot in the main event. Alessi went on to finish sixth in Las Vegas.
 
In the Supercross Lites class, Rockstar Makita Suzuki teammate and newly crowned 2009 AMA Supercross Lites West Coast Champion Ryan Dungey had a good night, winning his heat race and then finishing up in second place in Las Vegas’ East/West Shoot-Out.
 
Rockstar Makita Suzuki Factory Racing will race next at the season-opening round of AMA Motocross at Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, California, on Saturday, May 23, 2009.
