Ama National Atv Racing Returns To The Empire State

NEW BERLIN, N.Y. (June 4, 2008) -- The ITP Tires/Moose Racing AMA/ATVA National Motocross Championship Presented by Parts Unlimited heads to Central New York this weekend for the Can-Am Northeastern ATV National Presented by Renegade. The event, Round 7 of the National Pro Racing tour and Round 6 of the Amateur tour, is being held at Unadilla MX. The Nation's premier national ATV racing series features America's best Pro riders, as well as Amateur, Pro-Am and Junior racers.

The ATV Motocross Series features the top professional and amateur ATV riders in the country, competing at preeminent motocross facilities across the nation. ATV motocross racing is run on a closed course, which comprises technical "whoops" sections, as well as big-air jumps, tight turns and all-out straightaways. The machines are race-bred 450cc machines from top manufacturers such as Can-Am, Suzuki, Yamaha, Polaris, Honda, KTM, and Kawasaki. Riders easily make six-figure incomes from the large purses, and contingency bonuses posted by manufacturers, as well as other Series sponsors and suppliers.

The riders will be vying for the most coveted honor in ATV racing: The AMA National Championship and the AMA No. 1 Number Plate.

This weekend's event is the second base of the $5,000 ITP Tires Grand Slam Presented by QUAD Magazine. The championship within a championship, being held at four of this year's Showcase Events, is offering monetary awards in the Pro Class, as well as special bronze, silver and gold medals in the Amateur Classes.

This weekend's Showcase will feature the popular RiderCourse ATV training program, as well as demo rides of Can-Am's newest ATVs. The Showcase will also include other outdoor-themed displays and other entertainment opportunities for fans.

The race will be telecast on Versus Network on Sept. 29 at 3:30 p.m.

With Round 7 looming, the points championship is still very much up for grabs. Dustin Wimmer (No. 191 MSR/Suzuki/Yoshimura/Pro Taper Suzuki) has a commanding 41-point lead in the chase, earned on the merit of three victories and two additional podiums. In addition, the Center Valley. Pa rider is the defending winner here.

However, a group of veteran riders are charging hard behind Wimmer.

Leading that charge is Wimmer's teammate Doug Gust. "Digger" Doug (No. 55 Team Rockstar/MSR/Suzuki/Yoshimura/Pro Taper Suzuki) has been consistent all season, earning a single victory, and four additional top-five finishes. Gust sits second in points.

Meanwhile, defending and two-time AMA National Champion Joe Byrd has been on a tear during the last three races. With two victories, as well as a runner-up finish, Byrd (No. 7 American Honda/Joe Byrd Riding School Honda) has quietly elevated himself to third in points, and he may just be in the catbird seat when it counts.

Connecticut native Josh Creamer too has displayed courage and veteran experience this season on his No. 9 Team Monster Energy Kawasaki. Creamer, who earned his second podium this season at the most recent round, now sits fourth in points.

Wimmer Scorches in New York Heat, Qualifies First at Unadilla

UNADILLA, N.Y. (June 7, 2008) -- Through hot and humid conditions, Dustin Wimmer kept his cool and earned the top qualifying spot Saturday for tomorrow's Can-Am Northeastern ATV National Presented by Renegade at Unadilla MX. The event is Round 7 of the ITP Tires/Moose Racing AMA/ATVA National Motocross Championship.

Wimmer (No. 191 Team MSR/Suzuki/Yoshimura/Pro Taper Suzuki) turned in the top time of one minute, 56.669 seconds in the final qualifying session, ahead of rising star Richard Pelchat (No. 46 RP Evolution Can-Am) and Jeremy Lawson (No. 16 Team Epic Can-Am).

"I just went out, checked out how the track changed from the first practice and, once I got my bearings, I was ready for it," said Wimmer. "I like this track a lot and feel pretty good here. I'm fast on the uphill prior to the finish line and I like that section a lot. I'm looking forward to tomorrow."

With 30 Pro Riders entered, Josh Upperman dominated the Last Chance Qualifier (LCQ) to make the show on the No. 20 American Honda/Baldwin Motorsports Honda. Also qualifying through the LCQ were teammates Russell Shumaker (No. 68 Monster Energy Kawasaki) and Keith Little (No. 12 Monster Energy Kawasaki). Joe Haavisto (No. 75 Kawasaki) earned the final transfer spot after returning to National competition from New England regional racing.

John Ragon, Trent Kandel, Michael Brown, Brock Lyons, Rich Stambach, Christoper Tait, Hunter Miller, Steve Runkel, Brian Ace and Thomas Hager didn't qualify.

The Can-Am Northeastern ATV National Presented by Renegade continues tomorrow with Pro finals scheduled at noon and at 3 p.m., as well as a full program of Pro-Am, Amateur, Youth, and Women's racing.

It's Wimmer Again at Unadilla, As Can-Am's Lawson and Natalie Win Motos

NEW BERLIN, N.Y. (June 8, 2008) -- Dustin Wimmer further cemented his role as the man to beat in ITP Tires/Moose Racing AMA/ATVA National Motocross Championship competition Sunday, winning his fourth race of the season at Unadilla MX. The event was part of the Can-Am Northeastern ATV National Presented by Renegade.

Wimmer (No. 191 Team MSR/Suzuki/Yoshimura/Pro Taper Suzuki) finished second in both motos to secure the victory. Jeremy Lawson (No. 16 Team Epic Can-Am) was second overall, ahead of Joe Byrd (No. 7 American Honda/Joe Byrd Quad Riding School Honda).

With Saturday's heat replaced by muddy conditions on Sunday, Wimmer said an intelligent strategy helped him in the end

"In the mud, you really have to finesse the bike so it doesnít slip out on you," said Wimmer, who remains in the points lead. "I did what I had to do to stay behind John (Natalie) in the second moto and, since I didnít need to pass him for the win, I just stayed consistent and rode smart."

Yet, Wimmer's overall win might just be overshadowed by further milestones achieved by Can-Am. Lawson and Natalie handed Can-Am's brand new DS450 its second and third moto wins here, respectively. In addition, Lawson gave the company its third overall podium.

Lawson won the first moto after overtaking both Wimmer and Josh Upperman (No. 20 American Honda/Baldwin Motorsports Honda) to take the lead.

"Everything just happened so fast," said Lawson. "These guys are so fast and you really have to be on your game. I am feeling really confident in my team, my bike and myself, so that makes me ride well."

Natalie earned his second moto victory of the year, after catching and passing Byrd and dominating the second moto.

"My Can-Am just pulls in this mud; we really had it dialed," said Natalie. "We considered putting on the big tires, but checked out a couple classes before we went out and decided against it which was the right choice."

In the Riders' Championship, Byrd moved past Doug Gust (No. 55 Team Rockstar/MSR/Suzuki/Yoshimura/Pro Taper Suzuki) to take second in the points chase, 61 markers behind Wimmer. Gust is third.

Team Can-Am moved past Honda for second in Manufacturers' Cup points and is now just 43 points behind leader Team Suzuki.

Meanwhile, the $5,000 ITP Tires Grand Slam Presented by QUAD Magazine remains tight with two different winners (Byrd and Wimmer), and a numerical tie between Byrd and Lawson for the lead in the championship-within-a-championship program.

Special award winners were:

Ti Lube Fast Qualifier Award: Wimmer
Suspension Systems Holeshot Award--Moto 1: Upperman
ATVRiders.com Holeshot Award--Moto 2: Byrd
DASA Mechanic of the Race: Fred Reiser, Natalie's mechanic
The next race for the ITP Tires/Moose Racing AMA/ATVA National Motocross Championship is scheduled for June 21-22 at Muddy Creek Raceway in Blountville, Tenn.
