Brea, Calif. – July 19, 2010 – Round nine of the AMA ATV Motocross Championship at Unadilla, New York, proved to be another great weekend of racing for the Rockstar Makita Suzuki ATV team. Utilizing their race-proven QuadRacer R450s, points-leader Josh Creamer added another win to his already impressive season, while defending champion Dustin Wimmer logged another consistent second-place finish.

“I couldn’t ask for anything more from my quad or my team,” Creamer said. “I just want to keep this momentum going and finish off the season on top!”

The weekend started in excellent fashion for Wimmer. The two-time series champion won the fastest qualifier award and looked poised for a great result. When the gates fell on the first moto, Wimmer had a second-place start while Creamer was just a few spots back. As the race wore on, Wimmer continued to chase after the leader while Creamer moved into the third spot. However, time had run out for Wimmer and Creamer, who would cross the line in second and third, respectively.

The start of moto two saw both of the Rockstar Makita Suzukis in the top five by the end of the first lap. This time, however, it was Creamer in second. As Creamer embarked on a race-long battle for the lead, Wimmer was battling for fourth on the notoriously rough track. Creamer and the QuadRacer R450 were able to power into the lead and hold on to the finish, while Wimmer kept it consistent, finishing in fourth.

For Creamer, the 3-1 moto scores were enough to give him his sixth overall victory of the year, while Wimmer's 2-4 moto scores gave him second, putting the Suzuki QuadRacer R450 in the top two spots of the podium.

"The QuadRacer R450 worked out really well and overall it handled good throughout the track!" said Wimmer. "I got two good holeshots and the first race went pretty well. I came out second, but couldn't make up any ground and stayed there the whole moto. In the second moto, I ended up fourth. It was pretty hard to pass and the track was rough, but overall, the race went well."

"It was a great race," said Yoshimura R&D of America’s Marketing Manager Kory Ellis, who overseas the team. "Josh and Dustin both got on the podium, the QuadRacer R450 continued to work great, and with two races left in the season, hopefully we will have the championship wrapped up by the next round!"

Creamer leads Wimmer in the championship points by 30 points as the series heads into Buchanan, Michigan for Round 10 of the AMA ATV Motocross Championship at the famed Red Bud MX track.
