Walnut, IL – May 17th, 2010 – The Rockstar Makita Suzuki ATV motocross team scored another double podium over the weekend at the Sunset Ridge Motocross Park in Walnut, Illinois.

Wimmer had a 3-1 finish on Sunday for the fourth round of AMA ATV MX racing.
Dustin Wimmer took third in the first moto, and the win in the second moto. His performance earned him enough points to regain his status as the point leader for the AMA ATV MX series, just ahead of teammate and former point-leader Josh Creamer. Only five points separate the two teammates, and their Suzuki R450s have been tough to beat all year.
Creamer placed second in the first moto and felt strong going into the second moto. With a strong start, things looked promising until Creamer accidentally pulled his engine’s kill switch during the race, dropping him to finish fifth. Despite the incident, Creamer managed to put his QuadRacerR450 on the podium and earned valuable points toward the championship. “We ran into some bad luck halfway through the race,” said Creamer, “but I put my head down and still got into a podium position!”

Wimmer's second-place finish at Sunset Ridge marks his fourth-straight podium appearance in 2010.
Thanks to the efforts of these two talented racers, the Suzuki QuadRacer R450 has never been off the podium in the 2010 ATV MX season, and has been on the top step at three of the four rounds so far this year. With racers like Dustin and Josh at the helm, the Rockstar Makita Suzuki team is well on its way to another phenomenal season.
The next round of the 2010 ATV Motocross Championship series takes place at the Steel City Raceway in Delmont, PA, on May 29-30.
