Creamer "steps It Up" In First-round Qualifying At Birch Creek

ATVA PRESS

DANVILLE, Va. (April 26, 2008) -- Team Monster Energy Drink/Kawasaki representatives were quick to point out last season that its team was in development mode of its KFX450 quad. However, if Pro rider Josh Creamer's run in qualifying Saturday for the TriangleCycle.com ATV National was any indication, development time is now over and it's time to race. The event, Round 4 of the 2008 ITP Tires/Moose Racing AMA/ATVA Pro ATV Championship, is being held today and tomorrow at Birch Creek Motorsports.

Creamer (No. 9 Team Monster Energy Drink Kawasaki) topped the charts with a one-minute, 55.930-second lap, besting points leader Dustin Wimmer (No. 191 Team MSR/Suzuki/Yoshimura/Pro Taper) by less than a 10th of a second. Defending Champion Joe Byrd (No. 7 Joe Byrd Racing School/Honda) was third quick.

"This year is going great," said Creamer, who has one podium and an additional top-five finish in three races. "I had an injury early in the season and I can't cross train the way I'd like to. So, I've just put in more seat time. I've been riding as hard as I can and it's beginning to pay off.

"There are a lot of guys out there that would like to be in my shoes right now; I'm just glad I'm wearing them and that they fit," laughed Creamer. "The bike is just perfect; it fits me great."

Team Manager Jimmy White is pleased with Kawasaki's progress this season.

"It's really coming together," said White. "There are a lot of good riders out there now, and the competition is stiff. Suzuki is always there and Can-Am and Yamaha are really stepping it up. But we put in our dues last season, and, without a doubt, we don't expect less than a podium, if not a win, every weekend. We've really stepped it up."

Rocco Arno, Jr., John Ragon, Cale Downen and Greg Gee qualified for tomorrow's finals through the Last Chance Qualifier (LCQ). Nate Morello, Trent Kandel, Christopher Tait, Richard Pelchat, Hunter Miller and Justin Bush didn't qualify for the 20-quad field.

The TriangleCycle.com ATV National continues tomorrow with the final Pro qualifying round, scheduled for 10 a.m., followed by final motos at noon and at 3 p.m. Tomorrow will also feature a full card of Amateur, Youth and Women's racing.

Joe Byrd Bounces Back, Wins Birch Creek Round

DANVILLE, Va. (April 27, 2008) -- Is Joe Byrd back? "Let's hope so," said a triumphant Byrd after sweeping both motos to win Sunday's TriangleCycles.com ATV National at Birch Creek Motorsports, marking his first victory of the season. The event was Round 4 of the 2008 ITP Tires/Moose Racing AMA/ATVA Pro Championship.

Byrd (No. 7 Honda) traded the lead once with Dustin Wimmer (No. 191 Team MSR/Suzuki/Yoshimura/Pro Taper) before winning and the first moto, and ran away with the second moto. The two-time and defending AMA Pro Champion finished ahead of Wimmer, who notched his fourth consecutive podium. Jason Dunkelberger (No. 19 East Coast ATV/Honda) earned his first ATV Pro podium, finishing third.

"This track really worked for me this weekend," said Byrd, who was near the top of the timing charts all weekend. "We've been working hard this season, and we're going to keep doing what we're doing. The early part of the year was difficult; hopefully this is a sign of things to come.

"This will definitely build momentum going into the next race," added Byrd. "More importantly, it will raise the morale in the Byrd compound, making all of those 18-hour shifts meaningful."

With the victory, Byrd moves up four positions to third in points, 59 markers behind Wimmer. Doug Gust (No. 55 Team Rockstar, MSR, Suzuki, Yoshimura, Pro Taper) is second in the title chase, while John Natalie (No. 13 Can-Am) and Josh Creamer (No. 9 Team Monster Energy Drink/Kawasaki) are fourth and fifth, respectively.

The next race for the ITP Tires/Moose Racing AMA/ATVA Championship is scheduled for May 10-11 at Sunset Ridge MX in Walnut, Ill.

Atva Mx Notebook

ENTRIES STRONG...Total entries for this weekend were an event record 654 in 34 classes, with 26 riders representing the Pro Class.

TOP QUALIFIER... Josh Creamer set the fastest time in final qualifying held mid-morning on Sunday, winning the Ti Fuel Fast Qualifier Award. Creamer turned a two-minute, .524-of-a-second lap on the wet track surface. Creamer backed up his fast time in first-round qualifying, which was more than four seconds faster, set yesterday in dry conditions.

HOLESHOT WINNERS...Joe Byrd won the Suspension Systems Holeshot Award en route to winning the first moto and the ATVRiders.com Holeshot Award in the second moto.

IRON MEN...John Natalie, Jr. and Chad Wienen were both suffering the after effects of injuries sustained prior to the weekend. Natalie has an infection in his left eye, and Wienen was involved in an accident last week while training for this event, which left him with a sore shoulder. Interestingly, the two made contact in the first moto and Wienen ended up with the worst of the incident, going off in one the track's uphill sections. Neither rider was seriously injured in the tangle.

TRACK CONDITIONS...Saturday was warm and dry, but evening thunderstorms washed over the Danville area Saturday evening and didn't stop until 7 a.m. Sunday. However, due to hard work by the track staff, the wet weather only delayed Sunday's program by one hour.
