After a storybook start to the 2010 Supercross season, thanks to the spectacular racing effort of rookie Ryan Dungey, Rockstar Makita Suzuki is preparing to take to the track in San Francisco on January 30 for Round 4 of the AMA Supercross. So far, Rockstar Makita Suzuki has taken home the winner’s trophy two out of three races, and Dungey hasn’t finished lower than second all season.


Team Manager Roger DeCoster is pleased with the way the season has started. With the help of DeCoster and the rest of the team, Dungey has led 43 out of 60 laps in 2010.


Despite the great start to the season, the team is focused.


Dungey showed a lot of patience on the track for Anaheim 2, and he was very calculating in his race approach. Starting in about fifth place, Dungey methodically moved his way up until he took over the lead in lap 14. Dungey finished the race with more than three seconds on the next competitor.


With 72 accumulated points, Dungey is currently the leader in the Supercross class.


The Suzuki RM-Z450 that both Dungey and his teammate Austin Stroupe pilot in the Supercross class is also a winner this year. The 2010 fuel-injected 450 nabbed the holeshot in every main event so far, and it has gotten the holeshot in five out of six heat races. There is no doubt the RM-Z has plenty of power straight off the gate, and the racers are using it to its full potential.


Round 4 of the AMA Supercross will take place at AT&T Park in San Francisco on January 30.
