Chino, Calif. – June 21, 2010 – Yoshimura R&D of America dominated Muddy Creek in Blountville, Tennessee, on Sunday. Yoshimura’s Josh Creamer won the AMA ATV Motocross Pro overall, while Yoshimura-supported racers Dustin Wimmer, Thomas Brown, and Cody Grant all stormed the top 10. In the ITP QuadCross series, Justin Jones took the win in the Pro-Am class, making it a winning weekend for Yoshimura ATV racers.

At the AMA ATV Motocross series, Creamer took second in both motos but came out on top when the points were tallied on Sunday. Creamer has won three overalls in a row now and plans to keep on winning. He took the holeshot in the second moto with his impressive Yoshimura engine, and his consistently fast riding has put him on top of the podium five times total.

“It feels really good to win three in a row,” Creamer said. “I didn’t know if I was going to be able to pull it off like this since it’s my first season on the Suzuki, but I was hoping. Now, hopefully we keep it up for rest of the season.” Creamer leads the series in points.

Back-to-back champion Dustin Wimmer had some bad luck in the first moto when another racer’s engine failed mid-air over a double. Wimmer was able to remount his Yoshimura-prepped Suzuki and take seventh place, but he was determined to do better in the second moto. At the drop of the gate, Wimmer shot out and fought his way to the front of the pack. He never looked back, and easily took the victory. He’s currently second in overall points.

Thomas Brown and his Yoshimura-equipped Yamaha YFZ450 were also on a mission on Sunday. Thomas finished 5-6 in the motos, good enough for sixth place overall. This is Thomas’ fifth appearance in the top 10, and he’s also sixth in overall championship points for the 2010 season.

Newcomer Cody Grant also had a banner day at Muddy Creek. The rookie finished 11-10 for the day, putting him in the top 10 at the end of the race. Grant has steadily improved throughout the 2010 season, and Muddy Creek’s finish was his second top-10 appearance in a row.

Hot on Cody’s heels, Pat Brown and his Honda TRX450R finished 10-11 for the day and placed just outside the top 10. Pat is eighth in overall championship points and continues to be consistently fast on the track with the Yoshimura engine work propelling his Honda across the finish line.

Round 8 of the series takes place at Pleasure Valley in Armagh, Pennsylvania, on July 3-4.

At the ITP QuadCross series in Surprise, Arizona, Justin Jones rode his Yoshimura-powered Honda TRX450R to the win in the Pro-Am class. With the Yoshimura engine and exhaust on his quad, Jones easily powered his way past the competition to take the win. “I got both holeshots and both wins in my motos,” Jones said. “The Yoshimura engine really pulls and got me two great starts. I’m really happy and excited for the next race.”

The next round of QuadCross racing takes place July 11 at Glen Helen Raceway in California.
