WPSA

John Natalie, Jr. Goes Two for Two in Kentucky
As Natalie Family Celebrates at Daniel Boone

LONDON, Ky. (June 16, 2007) -- John Natalie, Jr. scored his second top SuperQuad Pro 450 qualifying position in as many days Saturday during the WPSA PowerSports ATV Tour Blue Ridge Open Championship at Daniel Boone Motocross Park. The event puts Natalie at the front of the field for the two finals tomorrow, scheduled as part of the double championship weekend.

Natalie (No. 13 Maxxis, Elka/Honda) had his hands full during his heats, just holding off Chad Wienen (No. 44 Team Rockstar, MSR, Pro Taper, Yoshimura/Suzuki) and Harold Goodman (No. 708 Lost Creek Cycles/Honda) to take the honors. Josh Creamer, for the second consecutive day, placed his No. 9 Monster Energy Kawasaki in the second slot. Dustin Wimmer (No. 191 MSR, Pro Taper, Yoshimura/Suzuki) recovered from mechanical problems yesterday to nab the third spot.

"I got around Goodman early, and Wienen and I fought later," said Natalie. "I just ran a smart race. I used my head, picked the right line and kept him behind me."

Natalie had even more to celebrate later in the day as his wife, Michelle, who also competes in WPSA's Women A Class, finished as the second runner-up in the Miss Hawaiian Tropic contest.

"She went up there and did really well," said Natalie. "I had a great day, too. So you really couldn't ask for anything more."

Natalie wants to add to his record here. Natalie remains undefeated in WPSA competition at Daniel Boone Motocross Park.

"I'm going to try to carry my momentum into tomorrow," said Natalie. "I'm looking to go six for six on the weekend."

This weekend's event features two complete shows for the TourŐs Pro Classes: SuperQuad Pro 450 and QuadTerrain Pro Stock. The first set of Pro finals are scheduled for tomorrow morning, with the second set of finals rolling off at 2 p.m.

Tomorrow's show will also feature a full card of Amateur, Pro Am, Women's and Junior Class racing.

This weekend's events will be telecast on ESPN2 on Sunday, July 15 at 1 p.m. EDT, and again on Saturday, July 21 at noon EDT.
