ROCKSTAR MAKITA SUZUKI ON INDIANAPOLIS PODIUM IN BOTH LITES AND SUPERCROSS

The Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis was the site of round seven of the AMA/FIM Supercross Series and the first round of the Eastern Regional Lites Division. The outside weather was frigid, but under the dome, it was warm and comfortable. The track was unusual and tricky with an off-camber hairpin, some difficult whoops, and overall, very technical obstacles.

Rockstar Makita Suzuki\'s Austin Stroupe was debuting the 2010 Suzuki RM-Z250 in the Lites class and in practice promptly put up some blazing fast times. He ended up qualifying second overall by a few tenths. Going into the heats, the new bike and Austin were looking very quick. Ryan Dungey was also on the gas on his Rockstar Makita Suzuki RM-Z450, posting fast times initially, but slower traffic balked him from going after the number one qualifying spot. Heading into the heats, though, the Rockstar Makita Suzuki team was looking very strong.

The first Lites heat race saw Stroupe get a little tangled up coming off the gate and found himself in fourth place -- not where he wanted to be. At the start of lap three however, Austin put the brand new Suzuki RM-Z250\'s fuel injection to good use motoring into a commanding lead by the checkered flag. On the victory podium Stroupe was clearly happy with the bike, and his own performance. He hoped to repeat last year\'s win tonight.

The 450 Supercross heat race was pretty stacked. Due to a penalty assessed to Ryan Dungey and Jason Lawrence, both riders had last gate pick in their heats. Even with the handicap, Dungey blasted into turn one in third place. Half way into lap one, Dungey passed up into second and took off after the leader. The gap was about three seconds the entire heat race and that’s pretty much how it settled out. Dungey crossed the line in second, a good starting spot for the main assured.

The final for the Lites class saw Austin Stroupe get a close second place start. But a bobble halfway into lap one put Austin back one spot. At the end of lap two he was still running third. At the beginning of lap four, the second place rider slid out putting Austin back into second. The positions remained pretty constant up until around lap ten when the top four riders got into a crowd of lappers. In spite of some very creative line selection on the part of the lappers, Austin maintained his second place spot at the checkered flag, making it a great start for the new RM-Z250!

The 450 Supercross event was a great race. Dungey got off the line in fourth place. But after a bobble by the third place rider, he quickly moved into third. Dungey was in third for many laps but finally ran down the third place rider, Kevin Windham, and passed him for second.

As in the Lites race, Dungey chased the leader but both were balked by lappers numerous times. Dungey closed on the last lap but it was not to be, and he settled for a justly deserved second place and tied for most points in the series. Overall, Dungey was happy with his ride and his team’s efforts:

In the 250 East Coast Lites division, Roger was very happy with young Austin Stroup, who debuted the new Suzuki RM-Z250.
