Creamer Takes Birch
Creek National and ATV MX Points Lead
Danville, VA (May 2, 2010) -- Rockstar Makita
Suzuki's Josh Creamer pulled out his second win
in a row at the TriangleCycles.com Birch Creek
National, in Danville, Va, in a thrilling,
fast-paced second moto that saw four different
riders take the lead. Creamer now sits at the
top of the points standings of the 2010
ITP/Moose Racing AMA ATV Motocross Championship.
His teammate Dustin Wimmer took second ahead
Yamaha's Thomas Brown.
"I'm really thrilled we got the win," Creamer
said. "We didn't get holeshots this weekend, I
was actually getting too much traction leaving
the gate so I was struggling keeping the power
under control. We worked our way through the
pack both motos and ended up winning. Even if we
don't get holeshots we can still work our way up
through. Everything on the bike was working
good. The Rockstar Makita Suzuki was working
awesome. The Fox Shocks were working well. I
could get the bike wherever I wanted. It was
hard to pass on the track so I had to stick it
in there and have to make the passes happen. The
second moto, we got a little bit of lead at the
end of the race and that sealed the win."
The morning broke with overcast skies, but
soon a blistering sun broke through, and
temperatures in the nineties tested riders'
fitness. But Defending Champion Dustin Wimmer
was undeterred as he first took the $100
ATVriders.com Fastest Qualifier award and the
In that first moto, Harold Goodman took the
$250 MotorcycleUSA.com holeshot, but faded early
as Wimmer catapulted to the front of the pack
followed by Baldwin Motorsports PEP's Josh
Upperman in second, and Motoworks Can-Am's Chad
Wienen in third. While Wimmer held onto the lead
the entire race, Creamer started creeping his
way to the front, and moved into second place
behind Wimmer after passing Upperman and Wienen.
In the end, Creamer finished less than an ATV's
length behind Wimmer at just .353 of a second.
Upperman finished in third.
In moto 2, Wimmer returned in full force to
take the $250 Motorcycle-USA.com holeshot award.
From there on, a bevy of riders took over the
lead. Wimmer traded the lead to Upperman in the
fourth lap when his seat surprisingly came off.
Upperman led for two laps until Yamaha's Thomas
Brown snatched the lead. Creamer, working his
way back through the pack after a 6th place
start took over the lead for the last 4 laps to
take the win. Motoworks Can-Am's John Natalie
took second in the moto after working his way
from a 7th place finish to second by the 10th
lap. Yamaha's Thomas Brown finished third after
a solid performance that saw him in the top 3
riders the entire 12 lap race.
"I'm super pumped about my finish," Brown
said. We got two great starts, the second one we
came out third. We led several laps in the
second moto. It got us on the podium and I'm
happy just to be there. Every race is getting
better and better."
Creamer took first overall, with Wimmer in
second and Brown in third.
"I had a good first moto," Wimmer said. " My
teammate and I battled it out a little bit. In
the second moto, I got off to a good start and
then my seat fell off on the third lap and there
just wasn't too much I could do besides try to
hang on. I had to stand a lot and my legs were
giving out and I had to let people go by so I
didn't crash. I just tried to suck it up and get
as many points as I could."
In the Pro-Am Production class, Chase Snapp
carried over his success from round two to take
the overall win with 2-1 moto scores. Travis
Moore finished second with 4-3 moto scores, and
Marc Winchester was third with 6-2 moto scores.
Moore took the moto 1 Idol Speed Holeshot award
while Winchester took moto 2's Idol Speed
The series travels next to the Sunset Ridge
MX in Walnut, IL on May 15-16.
