UNADILLA, N.Y. (June 7, 2008) -- Through hot and humid conditions, Dustin Wimmer kept his cool and earned the top qualifying spot Saturday for tomorrow's Can-Am Northeastern ATV National Presented by Renegade at Unadilla MX. The event is Round 7 of the ITP Tires/Moose Racing AMA/ATVA National Motocross Championship.

Wimmer (No. 191 Team MSR/Suzuki/Yoshimura/Pro Taper Suzuki) turned in the top time of one minute, 56.669 seconds in the final qualifying session, ahead of rising star Richard Pelchat (No. 46 RP Evolution Can-Am) and Jeremy Lawson (No. 16 Team Epic Can-Am).

"I just went out, checked out how the track changed from the first practice and, once I got my bearings, I was ready for it," said Wimmer. "I like this track a lot and feel pretty good here. I'm fast on the uphill prior to the finish line and I like that section a lot. I'm looking forward to tomorrow."

With 30 Pro Riders entered, Josh Upperman dominated the Last Chance Qualifier (LCQ) to make the show on the No. 20 American Honda/Baldwin Motorsports Honda. Also qualifying through the LCQ were teammates Russell Shumaker (No. 68 Monster Energy Kawasaki) and Keith Little (No. 12 Monster Energy Kawasaki). Joe Haavisto (No. 75 Kawasaki) earned the final transfer spot after returning to National competition from New England regional racing.

John Ragon, Trent Kandel, Michael Brown, Brock Lyons, Rich Stambach, Christoper Tait, Hunter Miller, Steve Runkel, Brian Ace and Thomas Hager didn't qualify.

The Can-Am Northeastern ATV National Presented by Renegade continues tomorrow with Pro finals scheduled at noon and at 3 p.m., as well as a full program of Pro-Am, Amateur, Youth, and Women's racing.
