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

Wimmer Leads Pro Pack to Ballance Moto X April 17-18

Bowling Green, KY (April 16, 2010) - One round into the ITP/Moose Racing AMA ATV Motocross Championship presented by Parts Unlimited, and Rockstar Makita Suzuki's Dustin Wimmer leads the AM Pro ATV pack with 1-1 moto finishes. But at Ballance Moto X this weekend, the story may change as the Wimmer isn't always the strongest at this track. If Wimmer continues that trend, it could leave the door open for other riders to challenge him early in the season.

Last year at Ballance, Joe Byrd and Chad Wienen were able to cut in front of Wimmer on the podium. This season, Wimmer's biggest competition has been Wienen, who looks strong with his new Can-Am. Wimmer is also seeing fierce competition out of his new teammate, Josh Creamer.

The event takes place at the Ballance Moto X track, designed by nine-time GNCC ATV National Champion Bill Ballance. The 1.3 mile-lighted track is made of natural terrain, and has been hosting the AMA ATV Motocross Championship since 2006. The track is challenging, but shouldn't come to any surprise to the riders. If Wimmer can improve, he'll have a solid base to the 2010 season.

Besides the top three riders of the season so far, other riders have stepped up to challenge. Motoworks Can-Am's John Natalie and Baldwin Motorsports PEP rider Josh Upperman both saw excellent results at Millcreek, with Natalie finishing fourth overall with 3-5 moto finishes. Upperman finished fifth overall with 2-6 moto finishes. Not to be left out of the mix is the likes of Walsh Racecraft's Jeremy Lawson, Yamaha's Thomas Brown, Joe Byrd Quad Riding School's Joe Byrd, Media Allstar's Patrick Brown and Cody Miller.

The weekend also includes a full slate of amateur racing, including classes for riders as young as six-years-old, as well as veteran divisions for riders over the age of 50. Practice, qualifying and racing will take place on Saturday and Sunday.

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.

Sunday tickets cost $15 for adults and $10 for children age 6-11. To get to the track, take I-65 North to exit 28 "Corvette Museum"; right off the exit ramp on 31W; go approximately 9 miles on your left.For more information log on to www.atvmotocross.com.
