The East Coast is calling, and the Rockstar Makita Suzuki team is ready to answer it with some serious racing. As the track at Indianapolis’ Lucas Oil Stadium takes shape, the team is prepping for the 7th round of racing in the Supercross class for Ryan Dungey and the first race of the Eastern Regionals Lites class for Austin Stroupe. The race will also mark the debut of the all-new, fuel-injected 2010 RM-Z250 in competition.


Stroupe has been testing his 2010 RM-Z250 in California for weeks and can’t wait to get the bike on the track for its first race. Earlier this season, Stroupe filled in for injured teammate Matt Moss on the RM-Z450 in the Supercross class, where he got impressive starts and even pulled a holeshot in Round 3 at Anaheim. Last year, Stroupe, a North Carolina native, finished second overall in the Eastern Regional Lites class and will definitely be a contender for the championship this year.


Ryan Dungey is ready for the action in the Supercross class to move east. Dungey is currently tied for first place in overall points and hopes to stretch his lead on Saturday.


With the race-tuned 2010 RM-Z450 and RM-Z250, the Rockstar Makita Suzuki team has the right tools to win.


Matt Moss, who’s slated to race the #712 RM-Z450 for Rockstar Makita Suzuki is still recovering from a wrist injury he sustained while racing in the Australian Supercross series in December. Moss hopes to be back on the track soon, but no date for his return to racing has been set.


Look for the racing action to take place on Saturday, February 20, at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. For updates on race day, be sure to find the Makita Scoop on Twitter and Facebook.
