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

Wimmer Looking To Pull Off Stunning Victory in 2009
ITP/Moose Racing ATV National Motocross Championship Series

Presented by Parts Unlimited

Hurricane Mills, TN (August 12, 2009) - Defending Series Champion Rockstar Makita Suzuki's Dustin Wimmer is in perfect position to take home his second championship in a row after this weekend's Loretta Lynn MX, held at the Loretta Lynn Dude Ranch in Hurricane Mills. This is the final round of racing for the 2009 Series.

Wimmer has a 45 point lead over his biggest competition this season, Monster Energy Kawasaki's Chad Wienen. Wienen took over Wimmer's lead when Wimmer sat out at the Sunset Ridge MX, after being injured in practice prior to the race. While Wimmer suffered through two rounds, Wienen recovered from his rough start to the season. The two traded positions in the points, until Wimmer launched a comeback at the Muddy Creek National. Wimmer has gone 1-1 in each round since, blowing by Wienen and essentially taking the championship in hand.

A battle for second is brewing behind Wimmer, as Wienen is only six points ahead of Honda Legend Joe Byrd. Doug Gust, who is seven points behind Byrd is thrown into the mix as well, making it an exciting battle as Wimmer sails toward the championship.

Behind them, a dedicated pack of riders seeks to grab top 10 spots. Josh Upperman and Josh Creamer take fifth and sixth places respectively. Creamer took home a win in round six but has been unable to get on the podium until the RedBud MX, where he placed second.

John Natalie, Jeremy Lawson, Cody Miller and Thomas Brown round out the top 10 as the ranks head to the final round of the series.

The pro class will feature two 20-minute races on Sunday, taking place at noon and 3 p.m., with the combined scores of both races determining the overall winner.

The pro riders will run as part of a full schedule of amateur racing, including classes for Youth, Women and veteran riders. Amateurs will practice on Friday and race on Saturday and Sunday. Pros will practice on Saturday and race on Sunday.

Besides racing action, Rodney Tomblin and Dave Smith will be back for Track Smack live on Saturday evening, 7 p.m. eastern time and will interview Joe Byrd, Heather Byrd and Doug Gust. You can check Track Smack Live out on Facebook and follow it on www.atvmotocross.com. There will also be a Kidz carnival and the Moose Racing Dinner Show. A Youth Contingency Program on Friday night will begin with a Golf Cart parade at 6 p.m. This will be the third year of the Youth Contingency Program which has had two years of great success raising over $40,000 in prizes for all youth classes at the series finale at Loretta Lynn Ranch. Each child that attends this prestigious event will receive not only a goodie-bag full of merchandise but will also be entered into a drawing for donated prizes.From Nashville, take I-40 West 70 miles to Exit 143.
