Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Supercross team, fresh off a spectacular second-place performance by Ryan Dungey at Anaheim 1, is busy preparing for the upcoming Phoenix round of race action that takes place on January 16th at Chase Field.

Team Manager Roger DeCoster feels particularly positive about the Ryan Dungey’s chances after his Anaheim performance. Dungey led for 17 laps of the Anaheim 1 race, and made a charge at the end of the race to almost overtake first place.

Both Dungey and teammate Austin Stroupe pulled massive holeshots aboard their fuel-injected RM-Z450 Suzukis at the season opener in Anaheim. On his first go-round on a 450, Stroupe grabbed the holeshot in his qualifier and finished a strong fourth to make it to the main event. Dungey got the holeshot in the main event, and kept the lead for most of the race putting himself well ahead of his competitors. Heading into Phoenix, the team is busy practicing and testing to make the already-great RM-Z450 even better.

As the riders prepare for the second race of the season, Dungey is analytical in his approach. Dungey is second in overall points for the season so far, and he wants to continue to collect points.

Teammate Austin Stroupe is also excited about round 2. Stroupe is slated to contest the Eastern Regional AMA Supercross Lites class on the RM-Z250 but is racing the first few West Coast 450-class events in place of teammate Matt Moss, who will return to the series in a few weeks.

Look for the Rockstar Makita Suzuki team in Phoenix this weekend to continue racking up points and putting on an amazing display of racing talent.
