BREA, Calif., Jan 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- American Suzuki is pleased to
congratulate Rockstar Energy Racing on its first 450SX class win this past
weekend at the opening round of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross season in
Anaheim, California. Team rider Davi Millsaps set the tone early by coming out
strong on his 2013 RM-Z450 and winning his heat race. Millsaps then repeated
his performance in the main event after grabbing the holeshot against what has
been called the most competitive Supercross field in recent years. Millsaps
led the majority of the race, but closed the show with a dramatic last-lap
pass over Honda's Trey Canard. "This win for Rockstar Energy Racing was an
amazing way to kick off the 17-round season," said American Suzuki Sales and
Marketing Senior Director Larry Vandiver. "We are very pleased for the entire
team, and would especially like to congratulate Davi on his incredible
performance Saturday night aboard the 2013 RM-Z450."

#1," said Rockstar Energy Racing Team Owner Bobby Hewitt. "As a
non-factory-supported team and privately-funded program by myself and
Rockstar, everyone at Rockstar Energy Racing is very proud of our efforts and

Millsaps is now leading the points for the 2013 Supercross season and will
