Brea, Calif. - February 23, 2010 - The podium isn't the only place you'll find Rockstar Makita Suzuki racers Ryan Dungey, Austin Stroupe, and Matt Moss. This Friday they will be at a special autograph session at Home Depot in Atlanta where they'll be signing posters and posing for photos with fans. The 2010 season has been exciting for the racers, and they're looking forward to thanking their Atlanta fans in person for all the support they've received this year. One lucky fan will even get to take home an autographed Ryan Dungey jersey that will be given away at the event.
With the help of great sponsors like Rockstar and Makita, the team has put together a great season so far. The team's technicians use Makita power tools on the Suzuki RM-Z450 and RM-Z250 that Dungey and Stroupe have been taking to the podium. On Saturday in Indianapolis, Dungey took second in the main event of the AMA Supercross class and is tied for first place in the championship bid. Stroupe finished second in the first race of the Eastern Regional Lites class, where he's on his way to being a contender for the title. The pair of racers are looking forward to Round 8 of the series, which takes place on Saturday, February 27, at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. Matt Moss is still recoving from an off-season mishap, but hopes to be back in action soon.
Dungey, Stroupe, and Moss will be at the Home Depot located at 2525 Piedmont Road NE in Atlanta from 4 to 6 pm on February 26 to sign autographs. We look forward to seeing you there!
