LONDON, Ky. (June 17, 2007) -- Chad Wienen out-muscled the SuperQuad Pro 450 competition and Chris Borich survived a wild QuadTerrain contest during the second round of Pro WPSA PowerSports ATV Tour competition Sunday. The event, the Blue Ridge Open Championship, was held at Daniel Boone Motocross Park.

The race will be telecast on ESPN2 on Saturday, July 21 at noon EDT.

Wienen (No. 44 Team Rockstar, MSR, Pro Taper, Yoshimura/Suzuki) showed his conditioning over the several weeks worked, as he followed John Natalie, Jr. (No. 13 Maxxis, Elka/Honda) for much of the race before pouncing, taking the lead late and winning his second race of the weekend. Following Wienen past Natalie were his teammates Dustin Wimmer (No. 191 MSR, Pro Taper, Yoshimura/Suzuki) and Doug Gust (No. 55 Team Rockstar, MSR, Pro Taper, Yoshimura/Suzuki), making for a podium sweep by Suzuki.

"We spent the last few weeks at (Race Team Coordinator) Jeremiah Jones' place training for this event," explained Wienen. "I learned a lot from the track, and it also helped me with my conditioning.

"I really think it came down to conditioning today," added Wienen. "The heat made it very difficult."

Harold Goodman (No. 708 Houser Racing/Honda) won the 1,000 QUAD Magazine Holeshot award.

Chris Borich led a sweep by Can-Am of the QuadTerrain podium.

Borich (No. 2 Warnert Racing/Can-Am) took the holeshot at the beginning of the QuadTerrain Pro Stock final, and wasn't headed. He led a Can-Am sweep of the podium, ahead of Chris Bithell (No. 6 Warnert Racing/Can-Am) and Scott Kilby (No. 207 Warnert Racing/Can-Am).

"It's great to lead the sweep for Can-Am," said Borich of his second WPSA victory of the season. "Warnert Racing, Can-Am, and my entire crew have just done a fabulous job getting my bike ready. It was perfect right out of the gate."

Borich also won the Holeshot Technologies Rock'n'Roll Award, worth $1,000, for exiting the QuadTerrain course's rock section first.

The winners of the $500 ATVSource.com Fastest Mover Awards, given in both Pro classes to the riders who move up the most positions from qualifying, went to Adam Vaughn (No. 83 Warnert Racing/Can-Am) and Richard Pelchat (No. 46 Yamaha Motor Canada/Yamaha).
