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

Suzuki Teammates Lead ATV MX into Birch Creek National

Danville, VA (April 30, 2010) - After two rounds of the 2010 ITP/Moose Racing AMA ATV Motocross Championship the Suzuki duo of Defending Champion Dustin Wimmer and Josh Creamer appear to have a handle on the standings, as the two sit at the top of the pack going into round three, the Birch Creek National in Danville, VA, held May 1-2.

While Creamer and Wimmer have been able to take the first two rounds between them, riders like Motoworks Can-Am's Chad Wienen and John Natalie Jr., Baldwin Motorsports PEP's Josh Upperman and Joe Byrd Quad Riding School's Joe Byrd have been close to taking those wins away. Natalie took a first moto win at Ballance Moto X, but mechanical issues took him out in moto two. Problems aside, Natalie will be gunning for an overall win this weekend. Byrd and Wienen are also looking for their first overall, after both took wins last year. With eight rounds left in the series after this weekend, it's still fair to see that it's anyone's championship.

The Birch Creek track is technically challenging and takes advantage of the hilly terrain, using strategically placed single, double and triple jumps. This includes several table top jumps, whoops and sand sections. The track surface features good old Virginia red clay on the hills with sand sections in the flats.

Tickets on Sunday are $15 for fans ($10 for ages 6-11), and admission includes full pro pit access, and an autograph session.
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.

To get to the track from US 58 East of Danville, VA across from Airport go north on Kentuck Road (State Route 729) 12 miles to track on left.
