Yoshimura and Dustin Wimmer ATV on Top at Glen Helen
Team Rockstar Makita Suzuki ATV Factory Racing Yoshimura's Dustin Wimmer began the 2009 season of the ITP/Moose Racing AMA ATV Motocross Championship right where he left off - in first place.The 2009 season kicked off in front of a large crowd at Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, California. 

Wimmer started off the day without a commanding start, but quickly worked his way forward to second place by the halfway point and started to chase down the leader - Josh Creamer. In spite of applying heavy pressure, Dustin ran out of time and tightly followed Creamer at the checkers for the number two spot.

QuadRacer R450 teammate Doug Gust had an even rougher start getting caught up in a pile-up in the first turn. Doug untangled himself in last place and then had his work cut out for him. In typical Gust fashion, he was able to climb his way to 13th place by moto's end.

Wimmer must have had an extra Rockstar energy drink during the break because the start of the second moto had Dustin charging out in first place capturing the hole shot position.

From there, Wimmer's flawless riding style, grit and determination plus the power of the Yoshimura-powered QuadRacer R450 was simply too much for the rest of the field to overcome.

Wimmer motored away for an easy moto win and overall victory of the day.

"Digger" Doug Gust had a better start in the second moto, and quickly worked his way up to a 6th position at the checkers for 8th overall of the day.

From the top step of the victory podium a happy Wimmer said, "I got it up on two wheels in one of the corners out back and almost tipped over. But I saved it and put in some steady laps. I started to pulling away and the rest of the race was pretty uneventful."

The Center Valley PA native looked like he had hardly broken a sweat on this very demanding course and sparked a lot of conversation that he is definitely the man to beat this year.

Wimmer went on to thank the Team Rockstar Makita Suzuki Factory Racing Team sponsors, the great fans that came out to Glen Helen and the promoters for putting together a great event. Wimmer summed it up: "It was a really fun day."

Team Manager Kory Ellis remarked on the first win of the season, "This has been a great weekend for Team Rockstar Makita Suzuki racing efforts. Coming off of Daytona with Mat Mladin winning the AMA Superbike race, Chad Reed taking the win in Supercross and Chris Borich securing the GNCC Maxxis General event on Saturday, we're really glad that we were able to do our part so that Suzuki ended up 4 for 4. I guess this shows the world that Suzuki ATVs is the brand that wins races."
