BLOUNTVILLE, Tenn. (June 21, 2008) -- Dustin Wimmer took the top spot in qualifying Saturday for tomorrow's Oakley ATV Southern National at Muddy Creek Raceway. The event is Round 8 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, 54.633 seconds during the final session to beat out his teammate Chad Wienen (No. 44 Team MSR/Suzuki/Yoshimura/Pro Taper Suzuki) and Josh Creamer (No. 9 Monster Energy Kawasaki).

"The promoters did a lot of preparation with the track," said Wimmer of Sam Gammon and his Victory Sports Racing crew. "They mixed a lot of sawdust into the dirt and it really helped hold the moisture into the track.

"The track is pretty fast and there aren't a lot of places to pass, so getting a good start is going to be crucial tomorrow," added Wimmer. "It's great to have Chad back too. Our team is back in full force and I'm looking forward to seeing all Suzukis at the front tomorrow."

Wienen returned to action this weekend after missing a race due to shoulder injuries and is riding a brand new quad. The time off must have been good for the Galena, Ill. resident, as he was only one second off Wimmer's time.

Jason Dunkelberger (No. 19 East Coast ATV Racing), Cody Miller (No. 22 Can-Am), Hunter Miller (No. 90 Golden West Cycles Yamaha) and Brock Lyons (No. 43 Rath Racing/Dunlop Polaris) qualified for tomorrow's finals through the Last Chance Qualifier (LCQ).

Rich Stambach, Steve Runkel, Michael Brown, John Ragon, Greg Meeks, Trent Kandel and Thomas Hager didn't qualifying for the 20-quad field.

The Oakley ATV Southern National 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.
