Dustin Wimmer Bad Fast, Qualifies First at Muddy
Dustin Wimmer was fastest Saturday at
Muddy Creek Raceway.
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
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.
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.
