ROCKSTAR MAKITA SUZUKI SETS LOFTY GOALSFOR THE WEEKEND'S PLEASURE VALLEY NATIONAL

Rockstar Makita Suzuki's Wimmer 5 points out of championship lead & teammate Gust in respectable 4th place overall

BREA, Calif. (July 16, 2009) -- Rockstar Makita Suzuki Racing heads into this weekend’s round nine of the AMA ATV Motocross Championship series at Pleasure Valley in Armagh, Pennsylvania, determined to take over the championship points lead. Currently, Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Dustin Wimmer is a mere five points out of first place overall and the defending champion hopes to move into the leader’s spot this weekend, while his teammate Doug Gust is currently close behind in fourth place overall.
After winning the first three out of four 2009 AMA ATV MX rounds and leading the points from the season’s onset, Wimmer dislocated his shoulder in a practice crash. As a result, he missed one round but then rebounded back to take one-one moto wins and the overall victory on his Rockstar Makita Suzuki QuadRacer R450 at the last round at Muddy Creek Raceway in Blountville,Tennessee.
Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Gust stepped up while his teammate was down with an injury. Gust has finished on the podium in the last three out of four races. Indeed, the last two rounds saw Gust and his Rockstar Makita Suzuki QuadRacer R450 bring home two impressive second-place finishes in a row.
This weekend, the Rockstar Makita Suzuki team will race at Pennsylvania’s Pleasure Valley facility, which is owned by long-time race supporter and Suzuki dealer Jeff Cernic. According to Cernic, Pleasure Valley was established in 1969 and is the oldest track in the country.
