Brea, Calif. – August 12, 2010 – As the AMA ATV Motocross Series approaches the final round at Loretta Lynn’s this weekend, the Rockstar Makita Suzuki team has their eyes on another championship trophy. The powerful duo of Josh Creamer and two-time champion Dustin Wimmer have dominated this season aboard their Suzuki QuadRacer R450s, bringing Suzuki the coveted Manufacturer’s Cup title with seven overall wins altogether, and with one round left, both racers are eager to make it eight.
Josh Creamer is in the driver’s seat to win his first AMA ATV Motocross Championship at Loretta Lynn’s. In his first year on the Rockstar Makita Suzuki squad, Creamer started the season with a third overall and hasn’t let up, winning six of 10 races and never finishing off the podium. After a strong second-place finish last week at Red Bud, Creamer holds a 40-point lead going into this weekend’s race over teammate Dustin Wimmer.
Wimmer finished in fourth overall last week, putting in two top-five rides. The defending champion has been consistent aboard his familiar Rockstar Makita Suzuki QuadRacer R450, and hopes to end the season on a high note.
The final round of the AMA ATV Motocross Series takes place August 14-15 at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee. The Rockstar Makita Suzuki riders are preparing to dominate the podium and bring home another championship!
