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

Mill Creek ATV Pro Motocross National set for Pell City March 28

Pell City, Alabama (March 17, 2010) -- The fastest four-wheeled QUAD (ATV) racers in America will make their return March 27-28 to the nationally recognized Mill Creek Raceway for the opening round  of the 2010 ITP Tires/Moose Racing AMA ATV Motocross Championship Presented by Parts Unlimited.

The Mill Creek race will feature the top professional ATV riders in America competing on a closed course featuring jumps, bumps and corners. Riders will compete on custom-built 450cc machines from top manufacturers such as Can-Am, Honda, Kawasaki, KTM, Polaris, Suzuki and Yamaha. Riders stand to rake in six-figure incomes from the large purse and contingency bonuses, all while competing for the most coveted honor in ATV racing: The AMA Pro Motocross Championship.

Pro riders will practice on Saturday and race on Sunday. Fans are invited to come early each day to tour the open pro pits and attend free autograph sessions, while also checking out the best amateur riders in the nation, who will be racing all weekend.

The event takes place March 27-28 at Mill Creek Motocross, located just a short distance from Birmingham. The track is surrounded by hardwoods, pine, creeks and rolling hills.  Over the years, Mill Creek has matured and become a nationally recognized facility, with wide lanes, flowing natural jumps and enormous elevation changes. The track features a mix of fast and slow technical sections into its nearly two-mile layout.

The pro class will race in two 20-minute races on Sunday, with the best combined scores of both races determining the overall winner. The big story of the weekend is defending AMA Champion Dustin Wimmer of Center Valley, Pa. The 21-year old Rockstar/Yoshimura Suzuki factory rider has been the national champion for the past 2 years.  Honda factory rider and series runner-up Joe Byrd will come hungry for the top spot on the podium and Chad Wienen will challenge for wins at every event this season.
The weekend also includes a full slate of amateur racing with classes for riders as young as six-years-old, and veteran classes for riders over the age of 50. Practice, qualifying and racing will take place on Saturday and Sunday.

To get to the track from Birmingham take I-20 East to Exit # 156; turn South, take 1st road on the right which is Roberts Mill Rd. Track is a short distance on the left. Watch for signs. The track address is 1724 Roberts Mill Pond Rd, Pell City, AL 35125. The track phone number is 205-699-8857. For more information log on to www.atvmotocross.com.
