Chino, Calif. – July 19, 2010 – Yoshimura ATV racers enjoyed another successful weekend of racing at Round 9 of the AMA ATV Motocross Championship, held in New Berlin, NY, at the famed Unadilla Valley Sports Center. Yoshimura’s Josh Creamer and Dustin Wimmer continued their string of successful races, with Creamer taking his sixth win of the season and Wimmer continuing his streak of podium finishes and placing second overall. Yoshimura-sponsored Thomas Brown and Patrick Brown also put in consistent finishes and powered their way to top-10 finishes.

“I just want to keep this momentum going until the end of the season,” Creamer said. “The Yoshimura motor was really good today and I’m happy with how this season has gone for us so far!”

Wimmer and his Yoshimura-tuned QuadRacer R450 secured the fastest time in qualifying, and in the first moto, got an excellent start, with Creamer just a few positions back. By the end of the race, Wimmer was able to hold on to second place while Creamer put in a strong ride to take the final podium spot. Yamaha rider Thomas Brown finished the race just one spot outside of the top five, while Honda-mounted Patrick Brown secured a top-10 finish with ninth. Cody Grant, the rookie in the pro class, just missed the top-10 with an 11th-place finish.

The second moto saw the Rockstar Makita Suzuki riders out front again, this time with Creamer getting the better start of the two. Creamer began a race-long battle for the lead, while Wimmer pushed hard in a battle for fourth. As the race wore on, however, Creamer made his way into the lead and took the win, while Wimmer was able to hold on to fourth place. Thomas Brown was unable to match his first moto score, finishing seventh, while Pat Brown improved on his first moto outing, taking eighth place. Cody Grant took rounded out the top-10.

“My Yosh motor worked really well today,” Wimmer said after the race. “I got two good holeshots and had power everywhere. It was pretty hard to pass and the track was rough, but overall, the race went well.”

Overall, Creamer was awarded the overall victory with his 3-1 moto scores. Wimmer's 2-4 finishes gave him second overall, making it two Yoshimura-backed bikes on the top two steps of the podium. Thomas Brown earned eighth overall with his 6-7 result on the day, Pat Brown's 9-8 finishes left him in ninth overall, and Cody Grant went 11-10 for 10th overall.

"It was a great race," said Yoshimura R&D of America’s Marketing Manager Kory Ellis, who overseas the team. "Josh and Dustin both got on the podium and with two races left in the season, hopefully we will have the championship wrapped up by the next round!"

Round ten of the series takes place on July 31 through August 1 at the Red Bud MX track in Buchanan, Michigan. Josh Creamer looks to close in on his first AMA ATV Motocross Championship, while the rest of the Yoshimura-sponsored riders hope to keep their quads up front.
