The Rockstar Makita Suzuki ATV motocross team scored another double podium over the weekend at the Sunset Ridge Motocross Park in Walnut, Illinois. The team finished 2-3 overall, with defending back-to-back champion Dustin Wimmer taking second, and Josh Creamer taking third. This is the fourth time in as many rounds that both riders have been on the podium.
Dustin Wimmer took third in the first moto, and the win in the second moto. His performance earned him enough points to regain his status as the point leader for the AMA ATV MX series, just ahead of teammate and former point-leader Josh Creamer. Only five points separate the two teammates.
Creamer placed second in the first moto and felt strong going into the second moto. With a strong start, things looked promising until Creamer accidentally pulled his engine’s kill switch during the race, dropping him to finish fifth.
Thanks to the efforts of these two talented racers the Rockstar Makita Suzuki team has been on the top step at three of the four rounds so far this year. With racers like Dustin and Josh at the helm, the Rockstar Makita Suzuki team is well on its way to another phenomenal season.
The next round of the 2010 ATV Motocross Championship series takes place at the Steel City Raceway in Delmont, PA, on May 29-30.
