Brea, Calf. – June 14, 2010 – The Rockstar Makita Suzuki ATV team enjoyed another dominant weekend of racing at Round 6 of the AMA ATV Motocross Championship in Millville, MN. Josh Creamer went 1-1 en route to his fourth win of the season, while teammate and defending champion Dustin Wimmer finished fourth overall with 3-4 moto scores.

“This weekend was awesome,” Creamer said after the race. “It couldn’t have gone any better. We were all on an even playing field at this track, and I finally got a good holeshot and got out front both motos and rode two smart races.”

Heavy rain canceled Friday practice, but it didn't slow the Rockstar Makita Suzuki team during qualifying, with Wimmer and Creamer logging the two fastest lap times. Wimmer got the fastest qualifier award, and he and Creamer got to choose their gate positions first. When the gate dropped for moto one, it was Creamer making the most of his gate pick, securing the holeshot aboard his Suzuki QuadRacer R450 and never looking back. As Creamer checked out at the front, teammate Wimmer was working his way forward from a strong top-five start. After a race-long battle, Wimmer was able to fight his way on to the podium, finishing in third.

Moto two saw Creamer again take the holeshot. After a brief challenge from the competition, Creamer prevailed, opening up another big lead on his way to a perfect overall finish. His QuadRacer R450 was setup perfectly for the challenging track, and his results prove it. “The track was really rough, but we nailed our setup and our Fox Shoxs were working great this weekend,” Creamer said. “The power of the QuadRacer R450 was great, and there was plenty of traction because they got a lot of rain this week before the race. The track kinda fell apart at the end, but the QuadRacer R450 handled it really well.” Teammate Wimmer again started in the top five, where he stayed the entire race, finishing a strong and consistent fourth. His 3-4 finishes were good enough for fourth overall. “We didn’t get the results we were looking for this weekend,” Wimmer said, “but we’ll get back to work this week and come back ready for Muddy Creek.”

Team Rockstar Makita Suzuki and the QuadRacer R450 lead the championship standings with Creamer in first, 15 points ahead of two-time champion Wimmer in second. “It’s a great feeling leading, but I’ve got to keep my head on straight because we still have a lot of racing left,” Creamer said. “It’s motocross and anything can happen.” Muddy Creek Raceway in Blountville, TN, is the next stop of the AMA ATV Motocross Championship, which takes place June 19-20.
