Brea, Ca. - September 2, 2008 - Team Rockstar / MSR / Pro Taper / Yoshimura / Suzuki finished the 2008 racing season on a high note, with Chad Wienen (#44) capturing a huge win at the Steel City Pro-Only Invitational in Delmont, Pa. Teammate and newly-crowned 2008 ITP Tires/Moose Racing AMA/ATVA National Motocross Champion Dustin Wimmer (#1) took the second step of the podium and veteran Doug Gust (#55) claimed a strong fourth.

Wienen was the Top Qualifier in Friday's qualification session, with Wimmer only a fraction of a second behind him. When it was time to start the single-moto event, their teammate Doug Gust grabbed the holeshot on his Suzuki QuadRacer R450 and led the opening laps. Wienen, however, was charging hard, and on lap 3, took the lead from Gust and powered forward in the number one spot. Wimmer, who had a sixth-place start off the line, had to work his way up through the pack, claiming the second place spot on lap ten. By then, however, Wienen's lead was too much to overcome, leaving Wimmer settled in for second. Gust used the momentum from his fast start to finish in fourth place.

"I always believed I could finish out the year strong," boasted Wienen. "I've got an incredible machine in the QuadRacer R450, and a great team behind me. I just needed to heal enough to make it all come together. These last two races have put me back where I belong."

With the win, Wienen won $5000 and a Number One plate for the ATV Pro Open Championship.

With the win, Wienen won $5000 and a Number One plate for the ATV Pro Open Championship. Team Rockstar / MSR / Pro Taper / Yoshimura / Suzuki will now begin preparation for the 2009 year of ATV racing.
