ROCKSTAR MAKITA SUZUKI BACK ON TOP IN SUPERCROSS

Ryan Dungey took control early in the day on Saturday at round 11 of the AMA Supercross Series and never let go, taking the top spot every chance he got. With the best practice time of the day and a decisive win in his heat race, Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Dungey was in top form going into the main event on Saturday night where he led for nearly the entire race.

Team Manager Roger Decoster was happy with Dungey’s entire day of racing, from practice to podium. Dungey made some key passes at the start of the race that set him up for the entire 20 laps.
The win marks Dungey’s fourth of the 2010 season and stretches his points lead to 24 points ahead of second place.

In the Eastern Regional Lites class, Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Austin Stroupe was also setting himself up for a great night. Stroupe was the second fastest after qualifying practice, and he went on to win his heat race. Stroupe was consistent and smooth on the track going into the main event, where he shot out of the gate and was approaching the holeshot when a number of racers failed to negotiate the first turn and took out many riders. Stroupe got caught in the tangle and went down, suffering a mild concussion. Stroupe managed to put together a strong effort despite his injury and finished in fifth, gaining two points on the series leader.

The series moves to Jacksonville, Florida, on Saturday, March 27.
