Muddy Creek Raceway MotorcycleUSA.com & Snowshoe National

Rockstar Makita Suzuki Racingís Dustin Wimmer and Doug Gust celebrated their first double podium of the season at last weekendís Muddy Creek AMA ATV Motocross National in Blountville, Tennessee. Wimmer piloted his Rockstar Makita Suzuki QuadRacer R450 to victory while teammate Gust followed him home in second place. This victory is Wimmerís fourth of the 2009 season and he is currently in second place in the overall championship points standings. For Gust, this result marks his third podium finish of the season and he is in fourth place in the overall championship points standings.

In the GNCC, Rockstar Makita Suzuki RacingĎs Chris Borich continues his winning ways. The series championship points leader charged hard on his Rockstar Makita Suzuki QuadRacer R450 at the Snowshoe National in West Virginia this past weekend and picked up his fourth consecutive victory of the season. As if that werenít impressive enough, this win is also Borichís sixth win of the season overall. Borich heads into the GNCCís two-month summer break with more than 20 points on second place.

Dustin Wimmer, 1st place AMA ATV MX:
ďIt feels great to be back on top. In the first moto, once I got the track down, I just put my head down and started passing people on my Rockstar Makita Suzuki QuadRacer R450. I had to work hard for the win in the first moto but in moto two, I got a much better start and I was able to take over the lead quickly and just be in cruise control. This win was a real confidence-booster for me. I put in a lot of hard work and it paid off for me this weekend. Iím still only at about 95 percent but Iíll be at 100 percent for round nine and Iím looking for another win. Iím only about seven points off the lead and I hope to take over that lead soon and give Suzuki another championship.Ē

Doug Gust, 2nd place AMA ATV MX:
ďMy Rockstar Makita Suzuki performed really well for me this weekend. It had the power I needed to get good starts and good results. I put in a good charge in the first moto and worked up to second.

Iíve been doing a lot of training in between races and Iíll be training hard again because at the next round, I want to win. Itís really great when Dustin and I are both on the podium in the number one and two spots like we were this weekend. Itís a big confidence-booster for the team when we both do well. Iím in fourth place in the points chase right now, so Iím excited about that.Ē

Chris Borich, 1st place GNCC:
ďThe track was a little different from the last time I raced here. They added in a 10-mile section so we were doing 20-mile laps. I took it easy on my Rockstar Makita Suzuki QuadRacer R450 on the first lap because I didnít know what to expect. My goal was to keep moving forward. Iím really happy that I have a nice points lead going into the break. It takes a little weight off my shoulders. Over the break, Iím going to take a couple of weeks off to relax, and then Iím going to be training hard again.

The prospect of taking a championship this year has me really pumped up, but I have to stay grounded and focused. Iím just going to take it one race at a time. Iím hoping for a couple more wins when we come back from the break so I can give Suzuki a championship,Ē Rockstar Makita Suzuki Factory Racing will race next at the AMA ATV Pleasure Valley National in Armagh, Pennsylvania, the weekend of July 18-19, 2009, and at the Unadilla GNCC in New Berlin, New York, the weekend of Sept. 12-13, after the summer break.
