New Berlin, IL — Jeremy Lawson won Sunday's
top qualifier award for turning the fastest lap
time with a 2:02.355. The gate was packed for
the first Pro moto and Joe Byrd pulled the
holeshot over MSR Yoshimura Suzuki's Dustin
Wimmer, Jeremy Lawson and Patrick Brown and Josh
Creamer rounding out the top five. Then Wimmer
passed Byrd after a couple laps, pulling up
beside him multiple times before making the pass
on lap four. Lawson and Byrd maintained second
and third while Wimmer pulled a slight lead over
the front runners. The battle ensued for Brown
and Creamer for the fourth spot, until Creamer's
ATV started smoking and he began to fall back.
The three-time Canadian champion Jasmin Plante
brought his Yamaha to the fifth place position.
Meanwhile, Lawson and Byrd battled for second as
Wimmer had a comfortable 7-second lead by the
finish. Byrd held second over Lawson, who was
3/10 of a second behind, with Brown over Plante
in top five.
Byrd pulled another holeshot in Moto 2, over
Wimmer, Lawson, Chris Bithell and Plante for the
top five. By the end of lap one, Wimmer had
passed Byrd for the lead before the skyshot
jump, and Wimmer checked out from Byrd and
Lawson. No real changes came from the top three,
though Brown was trying to get passed Plante on
lap five of the 11-lap race. Brown ended up
going down hard when he tried to maneuver passed
Plante, and re-fired his machine to finish 13th.
With Wimmer out front, Byrd and Lawson finished
top three, with the current Canadian MX champ
Richard Pelchat in fifth.
The podium celebration.
The overall went to Dustin
Wimmer, followed by Joe Byrd in second, Jeremy
Lawson in third, with Jasmin Plante and Josh
Creamer inside the top five overall.
