ITP/Moose Racing AMA/ATVA ATV Motocross National Championship Series

Wimmer Moves Toward Championship after Capturing RedBud Round of the AMA Pro ATV MX Series

Buchanan, MI ( August 3, 2009) - Rockstar Makita Suzuki's Dustin Wimmer took what looked like an effortless win as he sailed to his sixth win of the year, in a methodical 1-1 win at RedBud MX in Buchanan, MI. Wimmer has run the gamut of luck this season, starting off exceptionally well, then sitting out two races with an injury, struggling trying to mount a comeback, and then winning the last two races back. Now, Wimmer stands close to winning back-to-back championships in the ITP Tires/Moose Racing AMA ATV Motocross Championship Presented by Parts Unlimited, this one his toughest yet.

Monster Energy Kawasaki's Josh Creamer and Chad Wienen were close behind, keeping the Kawasaki versus Suzuki fight alive for in the Manufacturer's Cup Championship.

Cody Miller took home the ATVSource.com Top Qualifier Award.

In moto one, Creamer took the MotorcycleUSA.com holeshot and led the first five laps while Harold Goodman, Wimmer and Doug Gust stayed close behind. Wienen had a rough start, starting back in ninth but in typical Wienen fashion, recovered to fourth place by the end of the moto. Wimmer passed Goodman on the 2nd lap and pressured Creamer until the 6th lap, when he took the lead for the win. Gust took a solid 3rd place. Honda's Joe Byrd crashed in the first turn and finished 13th, but bounced back in the second moto.

In that moto, Goodman continued to ride well, taking the MotorcycleUSA.com holeshot while Wimmer, Creamer, Byrd and Gust followed behind. Wienen had another bad start in 9th place before he was able to recover. Wimmer passed Goodman on the second lap and took the lead, but his win wasn't easy. Byrd and Creamer pressured each other as they started to gain on Wimmer. At the last minute, Wimmer was able to dig a little deeper to hold onto first. Byrd took second, while Creamer took third.

Wimmer took to the podium with an escalated points lead. Creamer took second overall with teammate Wienen in third. Wimmer is now 45 points ahead in the points lead, so he needs to score just five points at the final round in two weeks, the ATV Dirt Days at Loretta Lynn Ranch. Wienen is in second in the points with Byrd only six points behind. Gust is only a few points behind Byrd in fourth.

As for the Manufacturer's Cup, Wimmer's win vaulted the Suzuki team further into the points lead, with 382 points. Kawasaki is still yet in second with 351 points. Kawsaki's big competition is Team Honda with 348.
