BUCHANAN, MI (August 3, 2009) Rockstar Makita Suzuki Racing‘s Dustin Wimmer continued his winning ways at the penultimate round of AMA ATV Motocross this past weekend at Red Bud Track ‘N’ Trail in Buchanan, MI. Powered by VP’s MRX01 racing fuel, the defending AMA ATV MX Champion Wimmer raced his Suzuki QuadRacer R450 to two impressive moto wins to take the overall victory. With one round remaining in the season, Wimmer leads the points chase and has captured a total of six wins so far this year. Rockstar Makita Suzuki teammate Doug Gust brought home an impressive fourth-place finish from Red Bud, having picking up third- and sixth-place moto finishes. As the racing season draws to a close in a few weeks, Gust is currently in fourth place in the title chase.
“My Suzuki was working great off the line,” said Wimmer . “I saw (Joe) Byrd coming up on me, my but my Suzuki QuadRacer R450 got it done for me. It really feels good to take another win and get even more points. In moto one, I was in fourth off the line and I just started picking people off. I caught up to (Josh) Creamer halfway through and passed him. In moto two, I saw Byrd and Creamer coming up behind me so I picked up the pace a little bit and kept my lead. I always try for the win and I’ll be trying for the win again at Loretta’s at the last round. I’m going to ride smart and do the best I can so I can win another championship for Suzuki.”
“My Suzuki QuadRacer R450 ran great and pulled hard off the starts,” said Gust . “The first moto went good. I passed a guy for third and I was catching Josh Creamer but I didn’t have enough time to try for a pass. The track was in good shape in this round and it was really a lot of fun. I had some trouble in moto two. I got some dirt in my goggles and it got in my eyes and it was really bothering me. I could hardly see. I was hoping to do a little better than fourth overall because I really wanted to win this round. I’m really looking forward to the final round at Loretta’s. I like that track and I think I’ll do pretty good there.”
Rockstar Makita Suzuki Racing will race next at .the final round of AMA ATV Motocross at the Dirt Days National at the Loretta Lynn Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee, the weekend of August 15-16, 2009.
