Chino, Calif. – July 6, 2010 – Yoshimura racers added to their collection of championship points at Pleasure Valley in Armagh, Pennsylvania, on Sunday. Four of the top-10 racers were powered by Yoshimura, and Josh Creamer and Dustin Wimmer are still on top of the leader board in championship points heading into the final three rounds of the 2010 season.

In the first moto, Dustin Wimmer and his Yoshimura-powered Suzuki QuadRacer R450 battled for the lead the entire race. The defending AMA ATV Motocross Champion’s capable and powerful quad kept him in contention for the lead, but when the checkered flag flew he was in second place. His teammate Josh Creamer took his Yoshimura-prepped Suzuki through the pack to finish fourth after a rough start. Yoshimura riders Thomas Brown and Pat Brown finished eighth and tenth, respectively.

Moto two had a different ending for Josh Creamer. The current points leader was unsatisfied with his finish in the first moto, so he shot out of the gate in the second moto ready to show the world what his Yoshimura-powered machine can do. He found his way up front quickly and then checked out. Creamer easily won the moto and added to his already sizeable points lead. Dustin Wimmer found himself in fifth by the end of the moto, and Thomas Brown wasn’t too far behind him in seventh. Pat Brown took ninth in the moto.

“The weekend went well, and even though I struggled making passes in moto one, I regrouped and we made a few changes to the quad and it worked!” Creamer said after the race. “The Yoshimura motor powered me to the moto win and second overall. I went into the weekend with one goal and I achieved it with the help of Yoshimura.”

At the end of the day, Josh Creamer and his Yoshimura quad were on the podium in second place overall. Creamer continues to lead the series in points and is now 25 points ahead of second place, which is held by teammate Dustin Wimmer. Wimmer finished fourth overall at Pleasure Valley, Thomas Brown took seventh for the day, and Pat Brown came in eighth overall.

“Yoshimura is really proud to be powering such great racers,” ATV Marketing Manager Kory Ellis said. “All of our racers have put together a great season so far and their results show that not only do the best riders in the world choose Yoshimura products, but Yoshimura products work on whatever brand ATV you choose.”

The series moves to Unadilla in New York on July 18th. With only three races remaining in the season, the Yoshimura riders are powering their way to another championship year.
