Brea, CA (7/20/2009)
Dustin Wimmer Goes 1-1 for the 2nd straight
race to resume the AMA Pro ATV Points
Lead & Doug Gust claims the 2nd
Spot for his 4th Podium of the year
Makita Suzuki Racing‘s Dustin Wimmer celebrated
an outstanding AMA ATV Motocross victory at
the Suzuki Summer Nationals at Pleasure Valley
Raceway in Armagh, Pennsylvania, on Sunday.
Wimmer not only captured one-one moto finishes
to take the overall victory, the defending AMA
ATV Motocross Champion also moved into the championship
points lead with this result. This victory marks
Wimmer’s fifth win of the season, which is even
more impressive considering he was injured mid-season
and had to miss a round. Adding to the excitement
of the weekend, Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Doug
Gust followed his teammate home in an impressive
second place. Gust carded third- and second-place
moto finishes to take second-place overall at
Pleasure Valley. This is Gust's fourth visit
to the podium this year and he is currently
in fourth place in the points chase.
“It feels good to take the win and be back
in the points lead. I just need to put in
three more solid motos to have the championship
wrapped up. There was definitely some good
racing going on this weekend. I think this
round was the most exciting so far. There
was a lot of back-and-forth, so I had to stay
focused and fast on my Rockstar Makita Suzuki
QuadRacer R450. I’m going to do some extra
training for the next round at Red Bud because
it can get really rough and I want to be ready
“This was definitely one of the best races
of the year. My Rockstar Makita Suzuki QuadRacer
R450 had plenty of power and got me to the
front and there was some really good racing
going on. I really like the changes they made
to the facility and the track. It’s a technical
track and requires a lot of throttle control.
I’ve been training hard, I’m still in it and
it’s not over until the last race.”
Rockstar Makita Suzuki Racing will race next at .the AMA ATV Red Bud National at Red Bud Track ‘N’ Trail in
Buchanan, Michigan, the weekend of August 1-2, 2009.
