Wimmer Dominates ATV
MX Season Opener at Millcreek Raceway
Pell City, AL (March 29, 2010) - Two-time
Defending Champion Rockstar Makita Suzuki's
Dustin Wimmer opened the 2010 ITP Tires/Moose
Racing AMA ATV Motocross Championship season
with an almost effortless campaign to the top of
the podium, with 1-1 moto wins at the Millcreek
Raceway in Pell City, Alabama.
"I really love this track," Wimmer said.
"Millcreek is great. I think this is my
sixth-straight moto win here. I'm out here to
win, what can I say?"
The day started with ominous clouds in the
distance that threatened a serious downpour, and
just as the Pro-Am Production gate was loaded
for the first moto, the rain came down hard for
several minutes. While Chase Snapp roared to a
first-place finish over Honda rider Jeremy
Tulenchik and Marc Winchester, the downpour
turned to a light sprinkle for the first moto
for the Pros.
Rockstar Makita Suzuki's Josh Creamer had
started the day earlier by grabbing the $100
ATVriders dot com Fastest Qualifier Award and
kept that speed when the gate dropped for the
first moto, when he took the $250
MotorcycleUSA.com Holeshot Award. But teammate
Wimmer powered to the front to lead all 13 laps,
finishing the first moto with three seconds to
spare over Baldwin Motorsports PEP's Josh
Upperman in second and Motoworks Can-Am's John
Natalie in third. Motoworks Can-Am's Chad Wienen
finished fourth while fellow Can-Am teammate
Jeremie Warnia finished fifth and Creamer 6th.
In Moto 2, Creamer again snuck up to grab the
second $250 MotorcycleUSA.com holeshot award,
setting off a fierce battle between the Suzuki
teammates. Creamer held the lead just seconds in
front of Wimmer, but Wimmer was able to slowly
close the time margin. By the fourth lap he was
on Creamer's wheels and by lap six, Wimmer took
over the lead. Then he slowly pulled away from
Creamer to finish almost five seconds ahead and
take first place overall.
Wienen picked up the speed in moto 2, and
after starting in the sixth place position,
slowly edged his way up to third after battling
with Upperman and Joe Byrd Quad Riding School's
"The Can-Am is working great," Wienen said.
"Thankfully, Mother Nature was nice to us and
held off on the rain. I can't say enough about
the Can-Am. I'll be on that top spot soon. This
is the team that wants it the most, and we're
going to go out and get it."
Creamer took a second place finish in moto 2,
to finish third overall for the day.
"Yoshimura makes a really good motor,"
Creamer said. "This thing just flies. Dustin was
pressuring me out there and I wasn't about to
hold him up. I just need to head to Florida to
train but with this team behind me we should be
up here every weekend."
Snapp took the win in moto 2 for the Pro Am
Production class, beating out Winchester in
second and Jeffrey Rastrelli in third. Snapp
took the overall win, followed by Winchester in
second overall and Tulenchik in third overall.
