Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Gust Podiums at Unadilla & Wimmer Brings Home Sixth
Round 7 – AMA ATV Motocross Series

New Berlin, New York - Unadilla Valley Sports Center (June 13-14, 2009) - Rockstar Makita Suzuki Racing‘s Doug Gust captured his second AMA ATV Motocross podium of the season at the Unadilla Valley Sports Center in New Berlin, New York, over the weekend, thanks to a second-place finish overall. Gust piloted his Rockstar Makita Suzuki QuadRacer R450 to two third-place moto finishes, which culminated in the second-place overall result. Rockstar Makita Suzuki teammate Dustin Wimmer returned to racing from injury in the last round and continues to improve. In the first moto, though, Wimmer got tangled in a turn-one pile-up and started from last place. Even so, he charged hard on his Rockstar Makita Suzuki QuadRacer R450 and worked his way up to 10th place. In the second moto, Wimmer rallied and picked up an impressive fourth-place finish. All in all, Wimmer finished the day in sixth place overall. In the overall AMA ATV Motocross championship points standings, Wimmer is in third place and Gust is in sixth.

Doug Gust:
“It felt really good to be up on the podium again. I had good starts and good motos, thanks to my Rockstar Makita Suzuki QuadRacer R450. It was pretty intense out there, but I kept my focus and did what I had to do. The second moto, I got a huge stick wedged in my brakes, so I didn’t have any brakes and that made it really hard to hold off the other guys. Now I’m just working on training a lot so I can be on top of the podium at the next round.”

Dustin Wimmer:
“I got caught in a first-turn pile-up and was dead last, but I just put my head down and worked up as much as I could. My Rockstar Makita Suzuki QuadRacer R450 was running awesome, as usual. We did a couple of shock and motor changes on Friday night and Sunday, and everything was working great. My shoulder was feeling better for this round and I feel like it’s getting stronger every day. I’ve been doing a lot of extra training and I am hoping to be back on the podium at the next round. Meanwhile, it was great to see Doug on the podium again.”

Rockstar Makita Suzuki Racing will race next at .the AMA ATV Summer National at Muddy Creek Raceway in Blountville, Tennessee, the weekend of June 27-28, 2009.
