ROCKSTAR MAKITA SUZUKI'S DUNGEY CLOSES THE 2010 AMA/FIM SX CHAMPIONSHIP LIKE A CHAMPION

  • Ryan Dungey got his sixth win at the AMA/FIM Supercross finale in Las Vegas.
  • Dungey grabbed the holeshot and led every one of the 20 laps in the main event.
  • The RM-Z450 was tuned perfectly for the track conditions, and Dungey had the fastest lap times in both the qualifier and the main event.

On Saturday night Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Ryan Dungey led every one of the 20 laps at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada, making this his sixth win of the season. Dungey was crowned the champion of the series in Seattle, but after two tough mud races, the rookie was ready to prove that he earned his championship the old fashioned way – by being the fastest guy on the track.

Dungey set the fastest time in practice, and proceeded to go even faster once the gate dropped for the main event. He grabbed the holeshot and never looked back, leading every lap to a decisive victory in front of a packed stadium. Dungey capped his 2010 AMA/FIM Supercross Championship with a phenomenal night of racing, and he’s now focusing on getting himself and his fuel-injected RM-Z450 ready for the Outdoor National series that starts in two weeks.

Dungey came up through the Suzuki Amateur program and won the 2009 Lites Motocross title and Western Regional Lites Supercross title, as well as winning the Motocross des Nations. With his 2010 AMA/FIM Supercross Championship, the 20-year-old Dungey is the youngest champion ever and also only the second rookie ever to claim the title.

The Outdoor National Series begins on May 22 at Hangtown, and Dungey and his RM-Z450 plan to continue racing and winning.
