ROCKSTAR MAKITA SUZUKI'S JOSH CREAMER IS THE 2010 AMA ATV MX CHAMPION
Josh Creamer and his Makita Tools tuned QuadRacer R450 just took home the 2010 AMA ATV Motocross Championship after 11 spectacular rounds of racing. Creamer won six races in 2010, making his first year on the Rockstar Makita Suzuki team his championship year.
"I knew that once I got on this team it was a championship winning team," said Creamer after the race.
The final round of the series was an exciting one for Creamer. He went into the race 40 points ahead of Wimmer, and although he was confident that he would be taking home the big trophy at the end of the race, he still put in a championship effort at Loretta Lynn’s. After a fast start, Creamer led the opening laps. A mistake pushed him back, however, and the champion-to-be decided to play it safe, crossing the finish line in seventh and taking home the AMA ATV Motocross Championship.
“This title is a lifelong dream of mine, and today is a dream come true,” Creamer said. “Unfortunately, we couldn\'t run up front the whole race but we still pulled out the championship and that was my goal for this weekend.”
Josh Creamer made the move to the Rockstar Makita Suzuki team in 2010 and from his first test session aboard the QuadRacer R450, he was fast, comfortable, and ready to race for the title. Joining defending back-to-back champion Dustin Wimmer, Creamer had high expectations for his 2010 season and was looking to dethrone his new teammate. Creamer was easily the most consistent rider in the series this year, and with a quad that never failed him, he focused on the championship. Creamer took over the points lead from Wimmer at Round 3 of the series, never relinquishing the lead for the rest of the series. With his drive to succeed, Creamer secured his first championship.
Dustin Wimmer, the AMA ATV Motocross champion in 2008 and 2009, came in second for the season behind his teammate. Wimmer claimed one overall victory this year aboard his QuadRacer R450 and multiple podium finishes, including his second-place finish at the Loretta Lynn finale.
