JOHNSTOWN, Pa. (July 15, 2008) – The Pro Am Women division produced some of the best racing action during the Suzuki Southern National, part of the ITP Tires/Moose Racing AMA/ATVA Motocross National Championship. In the end, Heather Byrd put on a clinic, winning her eighth consecutive victory.

Multi-time ATVA Women’s National Champion Angela Butler came into the weekend to run her first race this season on the tour. Butler raced hard to finish third in her season debut.

The first moto victory by Michelle Natalie showcased her talent and poise. Natalie, who lives in nearby Houtzdale, Pa., had been denied victory all season long, but pulled the holeshot in the first moto and rode uncontested to the checkered flag, much to the delight of the local fans.

 
Moto two saw a motivated Byrd earn the holeshot, then ride flawlessly for the entire moto, taking the moto win, and the overall victory. Natalie was biting at her heels the whole moto, but could not find a way around. Meanwhile, Butler was just out of striking distance between the two series regulars. The next race for the ITP Tires/Moose Racing AMA/ATVA National Motocross Championship is scheduled for July 26-27 at RedBud MX in Buchanan, Mich.
