Rockstar Makita Suzuki's Gust winds up season in fourth place

Round 11 – AMA ATV Motocross Series
Hurricane Mills, Tennessee
Loretta Lynn Ranch
August 15-16, 2009
Rockstar Makita Suzuki Racing celebrated the end of the 2009 AMA ATV Motocross season with
championship-winning style at the Loretta Lynn Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee, on Sunday
afternoon. The series’ final round saw Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Dustin Wimmer capture his second consecutive AMA ATV Motocross Championship after picking up fourth- and fifth-place moto finishes for an overall result of fourth place. This season, Wimmer raced his Rockstar Makita Suzuki QuadRacer R450 to an impressive six overall victories and led the points chase for most of the year. This feat is even more impressive, considering that Wimmer was injured mid-season and had to sit out a round. With Wimmer’s injury, Rockstar Makita Suzuki teammate Doug Gust picked up the proverbial slack. The veteran rider brought home four podium finishes aboard his Rockstar Makita Suzuki QuadRacer R450 and wound up in fourth place in the overall championship points standings. At the series’ last round at Loretta Lynn’s, Gust walked away with seventh- and sixth-place moto finishes for an overall result of fifth place.
Dustin Wimmer:
“Everything went great out there. My Rockstar Makita Suzuki QuadRacer R450 was running perfect. It feels great to come back from injury and still be able to win the championship. After the struggles I’ve had this year, it makes winning the championship even better. I went out there and rode smart. I knew I only needed five points so I played it safe and it paid off. I had so much adrenaline going for the first moto, but after that was over, I was able to relax a bit. I’ve had a lot of ups and downs this season, so I am really happy to be able to give Suzuki another championship.”
