Mt. Morris, Pa – This Memorial Day weekend marked the halfway point of the AMA ATV Motocross Nationals where the Warnert/Can-Am team raced under sunny skies and warm temperatures at High Point Raceway.

Cody Miller ran a consistent race once again this weekend. The number 22 Can-Am came off the line in mid pack in moto one, but became tangled in a first turn pile up that put him towards the back of the pack. Cody pushed hard and made up three positions before crossing the finish line. In the second moto, things were working more in Cody’s favor as he came off the line in 10th place and negotiated the first turn without any hang-ups. Cody charged hard and made his way up to 6th place by lap 6, but in lap 9, Cody dropped back to 7th but defended his position al the way to the checkered flag, which put him in 10th overall.

Cody’s highest finish so far this season was in round five at Sunset Ridge, where he placed 5th overall despite massive amounts of mud that wreaked havoc on many other racers performances. Cody’s consistency this year has earned him a total of 97 points, and puts him in 11th place of the points race, which is pretty good considering the young racer missed the Pro season opener at Glen Helen due to a health scare. Cody continues to get faster and fine tune his technique every time he hits the track.  It will be exciting to see what the rest of the season has in store for him.

John Natalie ran into a bit of bad luck this weekend as he was caught up in the same first turn pile up as his teammate, Miller. However, John suffered mechanical issues, which forced him to pull off the track in moto number one. In moto two, John came off the line in 8th place.  It first appeared that his luck might change for the better, but that was not the case as problems from the first moto pile up were still plaguing him.  John once again pulled off in the 7th lap.

Despite John’s bad luck this time, he is still doing well in the points race and holds the fifth position with 142 points. Earlier this season, John suffered an eye injury at Ballance MotoX that became infected and has obstructed his vision and given him quite a bit of pain.  Despite the trouble,  “Ironman” has continued to live up to his name and took his best finish of the year at round five where he claimed the 2nd position on the podium while still not fully recovered. That round proved that the extensive testing the Warnert team has done, in combination with John’s competitive nature, that he is still a threat in the championship points race.

The next round of the AMA ATV Motocross Nationals will have the Warnert/Can-Am team heading to Unadilla in New Berlin, NY, on June 7-8.   John and Cody are looking forward to competing on one of the best tracks in the country.
