Dustin Wimmer leads the AMA ATV MX Championship in points aboard his Rockstar Makita Suzuki QuadRacer R450. Josh Creamer is in second place overall in the series and in his first year on the team. Wimmer finished second overall, and Creamer finished third at Sunset Ridge.
The Rockstar Makita Suzuki ATV motocross team scored another double podium over the weekend at the Sunset Ridge Motocross Park in Walnut, Illinois.
The team finished 2-3 overall, with defending back-to-back champion Dustin Wimmer taking second, and Josh Creamer taking third. This is the fourth time in as many rounds that the team has put both Suzuki QuadRacer R450s on the podium.
Dustin Wimmer took third in the first moto, and the win in the second moto. His performance earned him enough points to regain his status as the point leader for the AMA ATV MX series, just ahead of teammate and former point-leader Josh Creamer. Only five points separate the two teammates, and their Suzuki R450s have been tough to beat all year.
Creamer placed second in the first moto and felt strong going into the second moto. With a strong start, things looked promising until Creamer accidentally pulled his engines kill switch during the race, dropping him to finish fifth. Despite the incident, Creamer managed to put his QuadRacerR450 on the podium and earned valuable points toward the championship. “We ran into some bad luck halfway through the race,” said Creamer, “but I put my head down and still got into a podium position!”
Thanks to the efforts of these two talented racers, the Suzuki QuadRacer R450 has never been off the podium in the 2010 ATV MX season, and has been on the top step at three of the four rounds so far this year.
With racers like Dustin and Josh at the helm, the Rockstar Makita Suzuki team is well on its way to another phenomenal season.
The next round of the 2010 ATV Motocross Championship series takes place at the Steel City Raceway in Delmont, PA, on May 29-30.
