Rockstar Makita Suzuki congratulates the motorcycle and ATV race teams for racking up a championship, numerous victories and podium finishes in their most recent events! To date, team Rockstar Makita Suzuki leads the overall championship points standings in six different classes in U.S. Road Racing, Supercross, Motocross and the GNCC.


In road racing, team Rockstar Makita Suzuki leads the American Superbike class. With six-time AMA Superbike Champion Mat Mladin at the helm, the incredibly powerful Rockstar Makita Suzuki GSX-R1000 has won eight out of nine rounds and has taken every Superbike pole position this season!


Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Ryan Dungey clinched the 2009 AMA Supercross Lites West Coast Championship at the series’ final round. En route to winning this title, Dungey piloted the nimble-handling RM-Z250 to four victories plus THREE additional podium finishes. Nico Izzi also finished third overall in AMA Supercross Lites East Coast.


In the premier Supercross class, Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s two-time AMA Supercross Champion, Chad Reed won three victories and second place overall, with the Australian finishing on the podium at all but one of 17 rounds.


After just one round of AMA Motocross, Ryan Dungey ALREADY has a victory and the lead in the 250-class points chase, while teammate Mike Alessi has a second-place result and is runner-up in the 450-class overall points standings.


In the GNCC Championship for both motorcycles and ATVs, Rockstar Makita Suzuki leads the way. Joshua Strang, Charles Mullins are in first and second place respectively in the former, while Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Chris Borich leads the latter. After seven GNCC rounds, the trio boasts a total of NINE COMBINED GNCC motorcycle and ATV wins!


Finally, in the AMA ATV Motocross Championship, Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Dustin Wimmer’s return from injury has led him to second overall in the points chase.

Rockstar Makita Suzuki team mate Wimmer captured enough points with three early-season wins to hold onto second place overall in spite of missing out on a round. Additionally, teammate Doug Gust recently picked up his first podium of the 2009 season.
