The lineup for Rockstar Makita Suzuki and the 2009 Monster Energy® AMA Supercross season have officially been released, showcasing new faces in different places and a talented, deep roster of contenders. The 2009 season is shaping up to be one of the most competitive and exciting championships in history!
