JOHNSTOWN, Pa. (July 12, 2008) -- Dustin Wimmer once again took the top spot in qualifying Saturday for tomorrow's American Suzuki Summer National Southern at Pleasure Valley Raceway. The event is Round 9 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, 44.590 seconds during the final session to beat out Pat Brown (No. 199 Team Yamaha) and Josh Upperman (No. 20 American Honda/Baldwin Motorsports).

"The track is pretty fun and I found some lines I can use to pass tomorrow," said Wimmer. "It's going to take a good start as always, but my Suzuki is running better than ever and I’m ready for the race."
Upperman’s third-place run created a lot of talk in the pits. The Ohio Factory Honda rider has been riding well for the past several rounds and could be a dark horse contender for the win if he starts well tomorrow.
“I felt really good today,” said Upperman. “My practice track is exactly like this place, so I felt comfortable as soon as I hit the dirt.

Cale Downen (No. 727 K&K ATV), Harold Goodman (No. 708 Honda), Russell Shumaker (No. 68 Monster Energy Kawasaki) and Hunter Miller (No. 90 Golden West Cycles Honda) qualified for tomorrow's finals through the Last Chance Qualifier (LCQ).

Trent Kandel, Brandon Smith, Michael Brown, Brock Lyons, and Brian Ace didn't qualifying for the 20-quad field.

The American Suzuki Summer 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.
