TEAM ROCKSTAR MAKITA SUZUKI GRABS A PODIUM AND TOP-TEN FINISH AT INAUGURAL DODGER STADIUM SUPERCROSS

Defending Champion Ryan Dungey scores a third-place podium, Brett Metcalfe an eighth

Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Ryan Dungey and his Makita tools tuned Suzuki RM-Z450 powered to a third-place podium finish last night in a thrilling main event during the third round of the 2011 AMA/FIM Supercross Championship at the historic inaugural Dodger Stadium Supercross in Los Angeles, CA. Teammate Brett Metcalfe rode a strong race, piloting his way to another eighth-place finish in the 20-lap main event.

 
After qualifying fourth, Dungey came out strong and dominated his heat race with a convincing win. In the main, Dungey grabbed a second-place start out of the gate just behind teammate Metcalfe and pulled into the lead by lap two. He kept himself in the front pack for the duration of one of the most exciting main events in recent years. Dungey ended up the main with a third-place podium finish.
 
"I’m overall happy about the day,” said Dungey. “Winning the heat race was definitely a step in the right direction. In the main, I got a good start and we had to battle pretty much all race long – it was kind of cat and mouse. Overall, happy on the day; we just came up a little short. My Rockstar Makita Suzuki team and I accomplished a lot, so we can’t complain about anything. I’m definitely looking forward to Oakland and going to another new stadium. We’ll do some work this week and show up to Oakland ready to go.”
 
Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Brett Metcalfe started his night with some tough luck in his heat race but fortunately was able to score the final qualifying spot for the main event. Despite an outside gate pick, Metcalfe and his Suzuki RM-Z450 blasted out of the gate and pulled the hole-shot just ahead of Dungey. Metcalfe led the first lap and a half until a small mistake put him on the ground. The Rockstar Makita Suzuki rider remounted and rode a strong 18 laps to an eighth-place finish.
 
“It was a good day,” said Metcalfe. “My Rockstar Makita Suzuki team was able to make some changes to my bike that made me much more comfortable on the bike this week, and that made me be able to get up to speed earlier in practice. I had a tough heat race but was able to climb back up to ninth so I didn’t have to go to the LCQ. In the main event, I just dropped the hammer and my RM-Z hooked up and I was able to get the hole-shot and led the first lap. I made a mistake on the second lap and went down and lost quite a few positions. Overall, I was happy with the ride; it was just that mistake that disappointed me. I’m really looking forward to Oakland – another new stadium. And the dirt should be a little looser and more tacky, which will suit my style a little better.”
 

The 2011 Rockstar Makita Suzuki team’s next event is Saturday, January 29th, at the Oakland Coliseum in Oakland, CA.
