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

Challengers Aim for Creamer and Wimmer this Weekend at Sunset Ridge
Round four of AMA Pro ATV MX hits Illinois

Walnut, IL (May 13, 2010) - Going into the fourth round of the 2010 ITP/Moose Racing AMA ATV Motocross Championship, Suzuki rider Josh Creamer has moved into the points lead. Creamer's win at Birch Creek moves him just two points ahead of teammate and Defending Champion Dustin Wimmer. Although the Suzuki teammates have dominated thus far this season, Can-Am's Chad Weinen and John Natalie, and Baldwin Motorsports Josh Upperman would like to change that this weekend during round four at Sunset Ridge in Walnut, Illinois.

The Rockstar/Makita/Suzuki teammates may have dominated on the podium so far this season, but Can-Am's Wienen is hoping to end that streak this weekend at his home track. Wienen, who from Illinois, has been successful at Sunset Ridge in the past, including a win last year. Meanwhile, many are wondering if Wimmer will have a disadvantage at this round since he crashed and injured his shoulder last year during practice before the event. Regardless, the long and challenging Sunset Ridge facility will prove to deliver great racing all around.

The Sunset Ridge Motocross track sits at the center of a valley, utilizing the natural terrain. The dark Midwest topsoil is grainy, similar to sand, and features good natural whoops. The track is mostly made up of table tops, camelbacks, and large rolling singles.

Tickets on Sunday are $15 for fans ($10 for ages 5-11), 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 Sunset Ridge, take I-80 to exit 45, Route 40. Continue on Route 40 North for 4 miles and turn Right on Manlius Road. Continue on Manlius Road for one mile, then turn left onto CR1100.
