Season Ending Award Ceremony at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Rounds out 2010 Monster Energy Supercross Season

AURORA, Ill (May 12, 2010) -- The 2010 Monster Energy Supercross, an FIM World Championship, season concluded this past weekend, following the year-end awards ceremony held at The Joint by Rogue inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas. A total of 24 awards were presented to recognize the championship's top riders and industry personnel who enjoyed a remarkable 2010 Monster Energy Supercross season.

Rockstar Makita Suzuki's Ryan Dungey was crowned the AMA Supercross class champion following a prominent rookie season. Dungey closed the championship with a 70 point lead over GEICO Powersports Honda's Kevin Windham, following a season ending win at Las Vegas' Sam Boyd Stadium.

"It's been an amazing year," stated Dungey. "This has been something I never thought I would do, it's an unreal feeling. It's something you have worked so hard for since a kid. I never thought I would be at this point in my career; everything worked out for the best. Roger (DeCoster) gave me an opportunity of a lifetime and everyday I'll remember that."

"Overall this was a great season," said Dave Prater, director of supercross. "We were faced with a bit of a challenge due to the unfortunate weather, but everything worked out in the long haul. I'd like to congratulate all of the riders, sponsors and teams for making the 2010 Monster Energy Supercross season a huge success."
