AMA/ATVA ATV Motocross National Championship Series

ATVMX Heats up in the Midwest This Weekend
The Series Returns to Millville June 4 and 5

Morgantown, W. Va. (June 1, 2011) - Following an unusual sequence of events at Steel City two weeks ago, the Motoworks Can-Am duo of Chad Wienen and John Natalie still clench the points lead over the rest of the field heading into round seven at Spring Creek MX in Millville, Minn. this weekend.

Chad Wienen swept the first moto at Steel City before running into mechanical issues at the start of moto two, preventing him from starting the race. The Can-Am rider still managed to claim a sixth overall from his 1-17 finishes - good enough to keep his points lead in the series standings.

Wienen's Can-Am counterpart Natalie took a hard fall in moto one, causing him to finish back in 14th place in moto one but after a top five finish in moto two, Natalie was able to finish inside the top ten overall to secure his second position in points.

Blood is flowing high as veteran Joe Byrd is coming off his first win of the season at Steel City, while Rookie Chase Snapp has stepped up his early game by securing his first-ever Pro class podium last round. Another heavy hitter to keep an eye on is the Ballance Racing Yamaha of Thomas Brown. All three of these riders have shown the ability to contest on the podium; it's just a matter of putting together races from beginning to end.

Amateur classes will practice on Friday and race on both Saturday and Sunday. Pros will run two timed practice sessions on Saturday morning and race in the afternoon as part of a full schedule of amateur racing, including classes for Youth, Women and Veteran riders.

Tickets on Saturday are $20 for spectators ($10 for ages 6-11), and admission includes full pro-pit access and an autograph session.

To get to the track, follow Hwy 60 East 21 miles through Zumbro Falls to County Road 11. At County Road 11, turn right & look for appropriate signs & entrance.
