TEAM ROCKSTAR MAKITA SUZUKI PODIUMS AT HISTORIC UNADILLA

Ryan Dungey captures second place at one of the toughest tracks in the series

Ryan Dungey put in a solid effort to earn second place overall.

Team Rockstar Makita Suzuki put on an impressive performance at round nine of the 2011 AMA Pro Motocross Championship in the Rockstar Energy Drink Unadilla National in New Berlin, NY this past Saturday. Reigning AMA Pro Motocross Champion Ryan Dungey raced his Makita tools prepped Rockstar Makita Suzuki RM-Z450 to a strong second place overall at one of the most grueling courses in the series. Teammate Brett Metcalfe rode two solid motos but had to overcome a collision with another rider to bring home 12th place overall.
 
In the first moto, Dungey got a good start but had a minor off-track excursion early on. In spite of this, he managed to make his way back up into second place by the end of the race. In the second moto, Dungey again put his head down and moved into a podium position on his Rockstar Makita Suzuki RM-Z450. Running in third place, Dungey made a daring last-lap move that put him in second place at the end of the moto, and second-place overall for the day.
 
"In the first moto, I high-sided a rut and almost threw it away,” said Dungey. “But I was able to get back on the track and work my way up into second place. In the second moto, the Rockstar Makita Suzuki RM-Z450 was running great, but I got stuck in third for a little while. But I was able to make the most of the bike and the track, and take advantage of some things, and I moved into second place on the last lap. Overall, I’m happy. We had fun – and thanks to all the fans and my family and Team Rockstar Makita Suzuki. We’ve got a short break before Southwick, so I’m going to focus on training and getting ready for that race. I won both motos there last year and I’m hoping to do that again this year.”
 
Teammate Metcalfe struggled with starts all weekend but made the best of it. In the first moto, he charged hard on his Rockstar Makita Suzuki RM-Z450 from 12th place all the way to a solid sixth-place finish. In the second moto, Metcalfe was running with the top 10 and then moved through the field to battle for fifth place. Toward the end of the moto, however, he had contact with another rider and went down. Metcalfe remounted and tried to salvage as many points as possible and in the end, he still brought home a 12th-place finish overall.
 
"I really wanted to be contending for the podium again,” said Metcalfe. “Unfortunately, my starts were a little off and this is a tough track to pass on. On the positive side, I rode strong; I came through the pack and was able to make moves. In the first moto, I ended up sixth. In the second moto, I had a good ride going and was challenging for fifth. But I came together with another rider and my front brake got jammed and that cost me. The Rockstar Makita Suzuki RM-Z450 was working awesome and the team was great, so it’s a bummer I wasn’t able to show what I could do. But now I’m looking forward to Southwick. I had some bad luck there last year and I want to redeem myself. I’m going to be running up front and I want to win that race.”
 
The Rockstar Makita Suzuki team’s next event is the 10th round of the 2011 AMA Pro Motocross Championship on Saturday, August 27th, at the Rockstar Energy Drink Southwick National in Southwick, MA.
