AMA Supercross leader in 2010 is Ryan Dungey. A rookie that came from the west coast that has dominated the last two races. He has won the last two races leading the point’s standings currently and going for another championship for Rockstar Makita Suzuki.

In 2009 Suzuki dominated the track with two riders in top 3. Joshua Strang finished 2nd with five wins out of the 13 races. With 11 top five finishes and 12 top ten finishes wasn’t enough to beat the number 1 rider Pual Whibley a Kawasaki factory rider. Charles Mullins won only one race to get third place, but he never had a bad finish. With 13 top five finishes out of the 13 races Mullins held strong to get third in the GNCC.

Suzuki plans on dominating in 2010 in both Supercross and in GNCC. With Dungey already to an early lead in the AMA Supercross will help motivate the Suzuki team to go out and prove that they are the ones to beat. The GNCC starts up in February and Suzuki hopes for a title.

Tucker--

I would like to know (not just as your teacher, but as a reader) up front a little about your opinion on why Suzuki motorcycles are so successful at these races. You could use the races that you mention to support your point. Otherwise, you're just funneling information here.

Cheers!
