Greenbrier, AR – The first round of the Extreme Dirt Track Series kicked off on June 8-9, 2007 in Greenbrier, AR. Eleven-time Pro ATV Champion, Tim Farr, and KTM used this race to announce the upcoming release of the new Sport ATV.

KTM will be releasing two Sport ATV’s later this fall, the 450XC and 525XC. Farr chose to race the KTM 450XC Sport ATV in the Pro-Am Unlimited class. The KTM 525XC Sport ATV was set on display for spectators to observe all weekend. A large crowd unfolded as Farr rolled the two quads from his trailer as ATV racers, family and friends all waited in anticipation for their first look at the new KTM.

Farr’s night started well on Saturday evening as he set one of the fastest lap times of the night during his practice. Farr’s competition knew he meant business as he continued to prove himself by pulling the holeshot and continuing on to dominate his heat. The momentum from the heat race win would certainly remain with him as he headed to the line for the main event. “I’m so impressed with the KTM Sport ATV. We’ve only had a short amount of time with it, and it continues to work so well.” stated Farr.

The main event was full of excitement as Farr trailed Houston Louder just slightly after the first lap. The two stayed in a close battle for the next few laps at which time a few riders crashed near the finish and forced the officials to red flag the race. When the course was clear all riders lined back up for the restart. Again, it was Farr and Louder side by side into the first turn. Farr took the inside line on Louder who refused to let off. The two remained side by side through the sweeper until Louder’s tire caught Farr’s nerf bar sending him into a spin. Farr stayed steady and pulled out with the lead. It remained a close battle between Farr and now second place, Josh Carter. Farr stayed strong and held on for the remainder of the race and took home the win.

“I feel incredible. I am proud to have helped KTM earn its first ATV win on its first try. I know the KTM Sport ATV has turned a lot of heads this weekend. This is the beginning of another exciting chapter in my race career.” commented Farr after the race.
