Rockstar Makita Suzuki, M4 Suzuki & FMF Makita Suzuki Dominate Road Racing, Supercross, Motocross, GNCC & ATV
American Suzuki Motor Corp. (ASMC) congratulates the Suzuki motorcycle and ATV race teams for racking up a championship, numerous victories and podium finishes in their most recent events.
To date, a Suzuki motorcycle or ATV leads the overall championship points standings in six different classes in U.S. Road Racing, Supercross, Motocross and the GNCC.
In the GNCC Championship for both motorcycles and ATVs, Suzuki’s RM-Z450 and the QuadRacer R450 lead the way.
Joshua Strang, Charles Mullins and their FMF Makita Suzuki RM-Z450s are in first and second place respectively in the former, while Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Chris Borich and his powerful QuadRacer R450 lead 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, the smooth-running QuadRacer R450 is second overall in the points chase, thanks to Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Dustin Wimmer’s return from injury.
Wimmer and his Suzuki 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 and his QuadRacer R450 recently picked up their first podium of the 2009 season.
Suzuki’s race team action continues this weekend as the Rockstar Makita Suzuki Motocross squad races at the Hangtown National in Sacramento, California, on May 30.
Following that, the Suzuki road race teams head to Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, the weekend of June 5 – 7.
That same weekend, the Can-Am GNCC moves to Millfield, Ohio, while the AMA ATV MX Series heads to New Berlin, New York, the weekend of June 13 14.
