Chino, Calif. – May 17, 2010 – It was a battle until the end for the Yoshimura riders in the AMA ATV MX series, and Dustin Wimmer and Josh Creamer battled their way to the front, landing on the podium once again. The Yoshimura duo took home second and third, respectively, at Sunset Ridge in Walnut, Illinois, allowing Wimmer to take the overall points lead, five points ahead of Creamer.

"My Yoshimura-powered Rockstar Makita Suzuki bike was working awesome this weekend!” said Creamer. “The track held up a lot better than planned, so we had fast racing.”

After coming off the line in sixth place for moto one, Wimmer made his way up the track behind Creamer to finish in third. Creamer played it a little more timid by coming out of the starting gate in fourth.  He trailed behind a bit to get a feel for where things were headed before making his move into second, a spot he would hold until the finish. Thomas Brown also had a good battle in the final lap of the first moto on his Yoshimura-prepped YFZ450. Brown cleared his way into fourth past Pat Brown, on his TRX450 with Yoshimura engine work, ended up taking fifth. Unfortunately for Thomas Brown, he was disqualified after his axle nut came loose and he received mechanical help beyond the mechanic’s area.

The second moto fared better for Dustin Wimmer. While he came off the starting line in second, Wimmer claimed first place after several laps, while Creamer finished fifth due to unexpectedly pulling his kill switch while going over a jump and causing him to land off the track. “I ran into some bad luck about half way through,” Creamer said, “but I put my head down and got back into podium position!”

The second moto proved to be a problem for Pat Brown, as well, whose fuel line came off and he was unable to return to the race for an entire lap. Pat Brown finished the moto in 14th while Thomas Brown received a DNF.

Harold Goodman and his Yoshimura-prepped ATV did well in both the first and second moto, grabbing a 10th-place finish in the first moto and 11th in the second.

Round 5 of the AMA ATV MX series takes place May 29-30 at Steel City in Delmont, PA.
