CANIDAE Rider Morais makes it two in a row!

January 16th, 2010, Chase Field, Phoenix, AZ - As this 2010 season begins to unfold, it is clear that the Rockstar Energy, Suzuki, CANIDAE Pet Foods team is going to be a serious title contender. CANIDAE rider, Ryan Morais continues to impress as he made his second straight podium with a second place finish at Round 2 in Phoenix.

After heading into the first corner of the 15 lap Main Event in 5th place, the young Suzuki rider would work his way into 2rd place on lap 4. With every lap, Morais would pull closer to race leader Blake Wharton. On lap 13, Morais would make his move and head into the lead. Also getting around Wharton, was Anaheim 1 winner, Jake Weimer. As Morais and Weimer pulled away from the rest of the field, Weimer would try several times to get by Morais. With 2 laps left in the race, Weimer make the pass stick as the two, battled back and forth. It was close at the finish but Morais just was not able to make up the lost ground and he would have to settle for a well earned, second place. A 3rd at round 1, 2nd at Round 2, maybe the 3rd round in Anaheim, CA next weekend will yield a win for the young phenom.

Rockstar Energy, Suzuki CANIDAE Pet Foods rider Hunter Hewitt would just miss making into the "Lites" Main Event and Tommy Hahn would finish up 10th place in the Supercross Class for the night.
