AMA Pro ATV Racing
Lawson takes opening round of the ITP/Moose ATVA National Motocross Championship Series Presented by Parts Unlimited

Pell City, Alabama - March 11, 2007 The opening round of the 2007 ITP/Moose ATVA Motocross Championship presented by Parts Unlimited is in the record books, and the series is off to a flying start. While perfect weather and track conditions greeted the riders, some of the top riders in the series didn’t get off to such a perfect start, which allowed Jeremy Lawson (Hon) to climb to the overall win by virtue of solid 3-3 moto scores.

Alabama's own Keith Little (Hon) had 2-4 scores for second and Chad Wienen (Hon) was third with 8-1 moto scores.

As for the pre-season favorites, defending ITP/Moose ATVA MX Campion Joe Byrd (Hon) was leading the first moto when he lost control and took an off-track excursion. He lost almost a lap trying to restart his machine and ultimately finished with 13-6 moto scores. Honda’s John Natalie won the first moto, but seized in the second go around and finished ninth, which placed him fourth overall.

The next round of the 2007 ITP/Moose ATVA Motocross Championship presented by Parts Unlimited takes place March 24-25 at Glen Helen in San Bernardino, California.
