The 10th anniversary Suzuki Big Kahuna Nationals is set to feature all of AMA Pro Road Racing's divisions in six races this weekend at VIR. As the next to last event of AMA Pro National Guard American Superbike, AMA Pro Daytona Sportbike, and AMA Pro SuperSport, the action at VIR is sure to be heated as racers struggle to obtain those valuable points for championship standings.
AMA American Superbike points leader Mat Mladin on the Rockstar/Makita/Yoshimura Suzuki GSX-R1000 is on his way to win the 2009 AMA Pro American Superbike title. Even after opting out of a race at Heartland Park, Mladin still leads the series. Mladin's nearest challenger and teammate, Tommy Hayden, trails behind Mladin by 83 points. A margin this size could mean that Mladin's fate could be sealed this weekend if he beats Hayden by enough points that it would be impossible for him to make up the difference.

The 2009 FIM MX1 World Championship is reaching its conclusion and the 13th round of 15 on the calendar will take place this weekend at the hillside circuit of Loket for the Grand Prix of Czech Republic.
Only days after Ken De Dycker earned the team's first victory of the season at their home event in Belgium, Teka Suzuki World MX1 head to a track that has been a happy hunting ground in recent times with a yellow machine celebrating success in alternate years since 2005; the scene of the maiden GP triumph for the RM-Z450. If the trend continues, then either Steve Ramon will manage his first winner's trophy since Spain 2008 or De Dycker will go two-in-a-row for the first time in his career.
Rockstar Makita Suzuki Racing's Dustin Wimmer continued his winning ways at the penultimate round of AMA ATV Motocross this past weekend at Red Bud Track 'N' Trail in Buchanan, Michigan.
The defending AMA ATV MX Champion raced his Rockstar Makita Suzuki QuadRacer R450 to two impressive moto wins to take the overall victory. With one round remaining in the season, Wimmer leads the points chase and has captured a total of six wins so far this year.
Rockstar Makita Suzuki team mate Doug Gust brought home an impressive fourth-place finish from Red Bud, having picking up third and sixth-placed moto finishes. As the racing season draws to a close in a few weeks, Gust is currently in fourth place in the title chase.
