Yoshimura Packs a Punch at Pell City Season Opener

Chino, Calif. March 29, 2010  The first round of the 2010 AMA ATV MX Series was a four-way top ten win for Yoshimura: two Yellows, one Red and one Blue. After a drenching morning in Pell City, Alabama, the skies cleared just in time for the first Pro moto at Millcreek MX.

Rockstar Makita Suzuki's two-time champion Dustin Wimmer took his Yoshimura-powered Suzuki QuadRacer R450 to a double moto win to start off his charge for a three-peat! Wimmer dominated both motos in a follow-the-leader kind of racing. "Everything just worked great for me out there," Wimmer said after the race. "I love Pell City and I've won six races here in the last three years.  I couldn't do it without all the support I have from my team and sponsors."

Josh Creamer, Rockstar Makita Suzuki's newest member, had two powerful starts on his QuadRacer R450 taking both holeshots. Although his first moto started strong, he got stuck in a berm and had to settle for a sixth-place finish. In the second moto, Creamer again grabbed the holeshot but Wimmer was able to get around him mid race; the two left the pack in the dust. "Yoshimura makes a really good motor on this QuadRacer R450," Creamer announced to the crowd from the podium. "This thing flies, it really does!"

Thomas Brown is the newest Yoshimura-sponsored rider and Pell City was his first race sporting the RS-2 on his Yamaha YFZ450. "I love the pipe," Brown commented after his first moto. "When we were looking at pipes, I wanted the best out there. I was lucky enough that they wanted to help me out." Brown ended up in seventh place with a pair of 8th place finishes.

Pat Brown completes the top ten round-up, another newcomer in the Yoshimura camp on his TRX-450R. Pat rode two solid races coming in 9th and 11th for a spot in the top ten. "I'm excited about this year," Brown said. "Yoshimura has a long history of winning races, and I'm glad they chose me."

Team Yoshimura moves on to Bowling Green, Kentucky on April 18th.
