Rockstar Makita Suzuki Factory Racing’s Chad Reed continues to dominate AMA Motocross as the twotime AMA Supercross Champion picked up another victory this past weekend. Reed won both 450 class motos to take the overall victory at Washougal Motocross Park in Washougal, Washington, on Saturday afternoon. With this victory, the Australian extended his lead in the overall championship points standings. Rockstar Makita Suzuki teammate Michael Byrne also had cause to celebrate. The Australian rider came back from a tough first moto and a 15th-place finish to capture a fourth-place finish in the second moto. The overall result was an impressive fifth-place finish. Byrne is currently in fifth place in the overall championship points standings.

In the 250 class, Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Ryan Dungey celebrated another victory at Washougal and is now tied for first place in the class’s overall championship points standings. On Saturday, Dungey won the first 30-minute moto and then finished fifth in the second moto. This combined result was good enough to give the Minnesota native the overall victory.

 

Rockstar Makita Suzuki Factory Racing will race next at Unadilla Valley Sports Center in New Berlin, New York, on Saturday, August 15, 2009.
