Rockstar Makita Suzuki again made its way to the podium in both the Supercross and the Eastern Regional Lites classes at the Daytona round of racing. With both Ryan Dungey and Austin Stroupe nabbing the second spots in their races, the team is making its intentions to win championships abundantly clear.

Dungey put together 20 fast laps in the Supercross main event after winning his heat race. Dungey came out of the gate third and had his work cut out for him trying to pass his way into the top spot. By the end of the phenomenal race, on the track designed by Ricky Carmichael, Dungey crossed the finish line in second and holds tight to his lead in the overall points standing.

In the highly competitive Eastern Regional Lites class, two riders have been dominating this season and one of them is Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Austin Stroupe. Stroupe got the holeshot in the Lites main event and battled for the entire 15-lap race to stay out front. Stroupe ended up getting second, which places him securely in the second spot in points for the class.

A new addition to the team, Ryan Morais, has been added to race the RM-Z450 in the Supercross class. Morais is contesting the Western Regional Lites class, but on the East Coast races he’ll be aboard the fuel-injected 450. In his first Supercross-class race of the season, Morais battled a few early-race mishaps to finish 10th.
Look for Rockstar Makita Suzuki to be perched on top of the podium next week when the series travels to Toronto.
