John Natalie Wins Pro
ATV Motocross National on Can-Am DS 450
Valcourt, Québec, July 6, 2010 – John Natalie
gave BRP its first AMA ATV Motocross National
win when he raced his Team Motoworks / Can-Am DS
450™ to the overall Pro-class win at Pleasure
Valley Raceway near Armagh, Pennsylvania this
past weekend. Natalie took the holeshot in the
first Pro moto and never looked back as he took
this win. In the second moto Natalie nearly
grabbed another holeshot and finished second.
With those two moto results, Natalie took the
weekend overall in the class.
"This is a special moment for everyone at BRP,"
says Jimmie O'Dell, Racing Manager for Can-Am
ATVs at BRP. "That John was able to give BRP its
first overall victory at the AMA ATV motocross
nationals is only fitting, he has worked hard to
bring this moment to the company. And he could
never have accomplished it without the amazing
dedication shown by the Motoworks organization
to put the Can-Am DS 450 on top of the podium."
The win was made even sweeter as Natalie was
able to accomplish it a little more than an hour
from his home, so there were plenty of friends
and family on hand to witness the win. The win
also puts Natalie in third for the overall
season championship race in the Pro class.
“I am really proud to give Can-Am their first
overall win! I have to thank Can-Am and
Motoworks for everything they have done and I
couldn’t be happier to give them the win today,"
said Natalie “It felt great to be in the lead
off the start like that and to run in first
place for the whole first moto. I felt good out
there and my quad was running perfectly.”
In the amateur classes, Chase Henry, took the
weekend overall in the 4-Stroke B class and
furthered his lead in the class championship.
His brother, Cole, still leads the Production A
class after finishing fourth overall for the
The next round in the AMA ATV Motocross
Championship will be July 17-18 at the famed
Unadilla Motorsports facility near New Berlin,
NY. For more information on Can-Am racing, the
