Team Rockstar Energy Suzuki Brings Home Another Top-10 Finish at Unadilla

_Rockstar Energy Suzuki News Release

NEW BERLIN, NY (August 14, 2011) - Team Rockstar Energy Suzuki celebrated another strong showing in the 2011 AMA Pro Motocross Championships on Saturday. The Rockstar Energy Drink Unadilla National saw Martin Davalos finish in seventh place overall in the 250 class at round nine of the series in New Berlin, NY. Rockstar Energy Suzuki teammates Ryan Morais, Nick Paluzzi and Jason Anderson followed in 12th, 13th and 16th, respectively.

In the first moto, Davalos was struggling with an injury sustained during practice and was happy to finish up in 14th place. But in the second moto, the Rockstar Energy Suzuki rider put the pain behind him and rallied. Davalos got a good start on his Yoshimura-equipped Rockstar Energy Suzuki RM-Z250 and was right there in the hunt for all 30 minutes plus two laps in the second moto. Once the dust cleared, Davalos had piloted his RM-Z250 to an impressive fifth-place finish, which was good enough for a seventh-place overall for the day.

"This past weekend was all right," said Davalos. "But in practice, I got hit by a rock and it knocked out my tooth. The nerve was exposed, so I was in a lot of pain in the first moto and I was just trying to survive. But the Rockstar Energy Suzuki team was really supportive and helped me put a lot of heart into the second moto. I'm happy with my performance in the second moto; unfortunately, the tooth threw everything off. But we have a weekend off to regroup and work on some things, and I'll see the dentist to get everything fixed up. So I'm looking forward to Southwick - it's one of the toughest races on the circuit and I've got to be prepared for that one."

The Rockstar Energy Suzuki team's next event is the 10th round of the 2011 AMA Pro Motocross Championship on Saturday, August 27th, at the Rockstar Energy Drink Southwick National in Southwick, MA. You can meet the Rockstar Energy Suzuki riders on Friday, August 26th, from 6 to 7 PM, at Motorsports International, 444 Washington St. (Rt. 20) in Auburn, MA.
