As the end of the racing season draws near, team Rockstar Makita Suzuki has taken the lead in the overall championship points standings in U.S. Road Racing, Motocross, the GNCC and AMA ATV Motocross racing!
In road racing, the awesome power of the Suzuki GSX-R leads the way. Six-time AMA Superbike Champion Mat Mladin and the Rockstar Makita Suzuki GSX-R1000 hold sway in the AMA Superbike class by more than 100 points. So far this year, the formidable duo of Mladin and his GSX-R1000 have celebrated 10 victories and seven out of eight pole positions!
In AMA Motocross, Chad Reed rules the premier class on his fuel-injected Rockstar Makita Suzuki RMZ450. The two-time AMA Supercross Champion Reed leads the 450 class points chase and has been the picture of consistency this year with eight out of 10 podium finishes – three of which were overall wins.
In the 250 class, Rockstar Makita Suzuki teammate Ryan Dungey recently picked up another victory and is now tied for the overall championship lead. This year, Dungey and the agile-handling RM-Z50 have won four races and been on the podium a total of six times!
As if the Suzuki RM-Z450’s performance wasn’t impressive enough, in the GNCC, off-road racers Joshua Strang and Charles Mullins have raced their FMF Makita Suzuki RM-Z450s to second- and third-places overall, respectively, and have five 2009 victories between them.
In the two ATV racing series, the powerful and smooth-running Rockstar Makita Suzuki QuadRacer R450s, like their two-wheeled counterparts, lead the way. In the AMA ATV Motocross Championship, defending champion Dustin Wimmer is at the top of the series standings after picking up five victories this year. Similarly, in the GNCC XC1 Pro ATV class, Chris Borich has racked up six wins and commands the title chase.
