Congratulations to Rockstar Makita Suzuki Motorcycle and ATV racers who earned MULTIPLE victories and podium finishes throughout the Daytona Bike Week. After the dust and smoke settled, Suzuki claimed stake to five first place finishes throughout Superbike, Supercross, GNCC and ATV racing. It’s an impressive kick-off to the racing season and testament to why Champions choose Rockstar Makita Suzuki.
