TEAM ROCKSTAR MAKITA SUZUKI TAKES THE WIN AT THUNDER VALLEY MOTOCROSS!

Ryan Dungey dominates the 450 class and claims his first overall win of the season

A huge crowd was on hand to witness and help celebrate as Team Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Ryan Dungey scored his first overall victory of the season at the Thunder Valley National in Lakewood, CO, the fifth round of the 2011 AMA Pro Motocross Championship. Both Dungey and teammate Brett Metcalfe put their Makita Tools tuned Suzuki RM-Z450s to the test in the grueling, high altitude conditions in Lakewood. Dungey rode two great races, claiming a second and first to come away with the overall win. Metcalfe once again had to work his way through the pack in both motos to grab a seventh-place overall finish for the day.
 
Dungey was strong from the get-go in Colorado. The Rockstar Makita Suzuki rider qualified with the second fastest time and had great starts in both motos. In moto one, Dungey was tight with the front group and in fourth place after lap one. By lap three, he was able to pull into third and put his head down to power his Rockstar Makita Suzuki after second. At lap nine, he made the pass for second, but by that time, the leader had built a pretty large gap and he had to settle for a second-place finish. In moto two, Dungey launched out of the gate and quickly into second. By lap three, he was able to pass for the lead and never looked back, claiming the second moto win and overall victory for the day. Dungey remains third in the championship points race but picked up a valuable seven points from the leader.
 
"It means a lot to get this win,” said Dungey. “We’re five rounds in and I wish it could have come earlier, but that’s racing. I have to give it up for Team Rockstar Makita Suzuki; we’ve all been working our butts off. This win feels really good – I’d like to keep continuing it. My Rockstar Makita Suzuki was awesome. I want to thank the man above and my whole family – It feels good to get this one. I’m looking forward to Redbud. It’s a great track and one of my favorites. I was able to pull off wins in both motos there last year. Hopefully we have a little momentum from this one and I can pull off a couple more.”
 
Teammate Brett Metcalfe started the day with the fourth fastest time in qualifying. The Rockstar Makita Suzuki rider suffered a bad start and a tip over in the first moto but was able to use the power of his RM-Z to work from near the back of the field to card a ninth-place finish. In moto two, Metcalfe had a better start but got caught up in a turn two incident and again had to work his way up from near the back. The Rockstar Makita Suzuki rider rode solid and put in some great laps to cross the line in seventh, which was good enough to give him a seventh-place overall for the day. Metcalfe sits sixth in the championship points but just one point out of fifth and four points out of fourth.
 
"It was a pretty good weekend in Colorado,” said Metcalfe. “Riding-wise, I was happy. I had a bad start and a small crash in the first moto. I was just really far back and Thunder Valley is a technical track. And with the altitude, the bikes are slower, so it’s really difficult to make up time. Unfortunately, not a good result with a ninth, but from where I came from, my riding was good. The second moto I got a much better start, but I got caught up in a bit of a pileup in the second corner, so I ended up at the back again. I was pretty frustrated, but I rode good that second moto and my Rockstar Makita Suzuki was working great. My team made some adjustments that really helped me in the second moto. I’m looking forward to Redbud. Everyone likes Redbud – It’s an awesome track and I feel really comfortable on the bike now and feel strong. I really need to get the starts there and give myself a chance to run up front.”
 
The Rockstar Makita Suzuki team’s next event is the sixth round of the 2011 AMA Pro Motocross Championship on Saturday, July 2nd, at the Rockstar Energy Drink Redbud National in Buchanan, MI.
