Delmont, PA – The second annual AMA Pro ATV Motocross Invitational, at Steel City, saw Can-Am/Warnert Racing’s John Natalie put on a strong performance on the technical track that gave many other racers problems throughout the course of the 11 lap race, allowing John to finish in the top five of the prestigious event.

Conditions for the invite only race were ideal, with sunny skies and temperatures in the mid 80’s. The track was a bit more technical than many of the tracks the team has seen during the course of the 2008 AMA ATV Motocross Nationals season. An uphill triple had many racers casing the jump and even crashing, but the jump was no problem for John, who loves nothing better than to go big.

When the gate dropped, John quickly shot off the line taking 4th in the holeshot. John held his position without much of a challenge from any other racers until the final two laps, when Suzuki’s Dustin Wimmer was able to pass John after a good battle forcing John into the number five position. Kawasaki’s Josh Creamer caught up to John as well and began to pressure him for 5th place, but Natalie kept his cool and kept the Kawasaki rider at bay. John kept his position all the way to the checkered flag to round out the top five of the AMA Pro ATV Motocross Invitational.

Now that the season has officially come to an end, John will be taking some time off as he is scheduled for surgery in the next couple of weeks to repair an injury to his rotator cuff. As soon as doctors give him the “all clear”, John will begin his training for next season and hopes to come back stronger than ever.

Can-Am/Warnert Racing’s, Cody Miller did not have as good of a weekend as his teammate, Natalie. Despite a badly bruised leg that he sustained in a crash earlier in the week, the number 22 Can-Am came off the line strong in the top ten and began to work up through traffic. The rookie pro, who has been getting faster and consistently improving his skills throughout the season, made quick work of several more seasoned riders, but he encountered mechanical issues early in the third lap, sidelining Miller and crushing his goal of a top five finish.

“Even though I didn’t finish, I still had fun. This is a great event that brings a lot of recognition to our sport,” stated Miller. “I’ve had a great time all season. The Warnert crew has worked hard and they have done an awesome job. The next event I will be attending is the Montreal Supercross up in Canada and I’m really looking forward to that. I won there last year so I am hoping to go up there and do it again!” Miller stated.

The Montreal Supercross will be held on September 20th at the Olympic Stadium in Montreal, QC, Canada where Cody Miller hopes to take home another win in front of 60,000+ spectators and claim his second consecutive Montreal Supercross Pro championship.
