Rockstar Makita Suzuki is busy practicing and preparing for Round 5 of the AMA Supercross series, which will take place at San Deigo’s Qualcomm Stadium on February 6, 2010. The team’s rookie racing sensation Ryan Dungey has had an amazing start to the 2010 season and is currently the points leader in the highly competitive class.
Dungey put together a great race effort in San Francisco, leading the first half of the main event and putting more than 9 seconds between him and the competition. His foot caught in a rut half way through the race, which ended in a get-off.
San Francisco took on boatloads of rain leading up to this weekend’s Round 4 of the AMA Supercross series. But just like last week at Anaheim, the track crew did a tremendous job giving the riders a great track to race on.
Series point leader and Supercross rookie phenomenon Ryan Dungey used his Yoshimura powered Suzuki to full advantage grabbing the holeshot in his heat race. But as he drifted wide heading into turn two, while Andrew Short on his Honda Racing Red Bull motorcycle, cut inside and passed into the lead.
Ryan Dungey, the current 2010 AMA Supercross class points leader, brings a 15-point lead into tomorrow night’s Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, at San Francisco’s AT&T Park and a two-race win streak.
Since 1974, the first rider to win two AMA Supercross class main events in a season has gone on to win the championship 17 times. Ryan Dungey, who is riding in his first full season as a rookie in the AMA Supercross class will compete for his third consecutive win this season.
