Amidst a large group of storm systems hammering Southern California, Rockstar Makita Suzuki\'s Ryan Dungey and Austin Stroupe are preparing for another big clash -- Anaheim 2.


The 2010 RM-Z450 Suzuki has proven to be the class of the field so far this season with holeshot after holeshot and Ryan’s fine breakout win in Phoneix. Dungey sits atop the points standings in the 2010 AMA/FIM Supercross Series but knows that it’s still very early in the season.


Dungey is the only 450-class rider to be on the podium at both events so far this season, something he wants to continue. The 2010 Suzuki RM-Z450 has proven to be fast and consistent. The Suzuki fuel injection makes the power useable, and has proven to have what it takes to get a holeshot. Just rewind to last week\'s double holeshots in the heat races plus the one-two first turn domination by Dungey and Stroupe in the main.


It will be interesting to see how much the weather plays into the track conditions this weekend. The track crew is doing a great job in keeping things dry -- covering each section of track as they complete it -- so, it could be anything from a perfect track to a mud race. However, the action on the yellow bikes will be the same rain or shine -- looking to win.


Ryan Dungey and Austin Stroupe will both be at Chaparrel Motorsports, 555 South H Street in San Bernardino, California on Wednesday evening, January 20th from 6-8 pm for an autograph signing session.
