    Chad Wienen ATVMX

    For the first time in series history, the ATV Motocross National Championship Series heads to Wildcat Creek MX in Rossville, Ind.

    Defending champ and current series points leader, Chad Wienen will attempt to extend his lead on a talented field of Pros this weekend in Indiana. Although the Wienen Motorsports SSi Walsh Yamaha presented by Maxxis Tires & Team Vollmer rider has two of the three overall wins this season, Wienen finally grabbed his first moto-win of the season last round, which attests to the great amount of competition in the Pro division. Protecting the National title has made Wienen hungrier than ever for another race win heading into Round 4.

    However, it’s still the ATVMX young gun Joel Hetrick who has the most race wins heading into Round 4 this weekend. The Corrosion Hetirck Racing rider currently sits second in overall championship points and is one of the many looking to take the overall win at Indiana’s inaugural event this weekend. After securing the moto one win, Hetrick experienced some bad luck in the final moto of Round 3, salvaging a fifth place overall and valuable championship points.

            Josh Creamer Unadilla ATVMXMaking his return to the AMA ATV Motocross National Championship Series, 2010 champion Josh Creamer raced his Can-Am DS 450 to a second-place finish at Unadilla, NY.

            Creamer was joined on the Pro class podium by defending AMA ATV MX champion John Natalie, who finished third overall. Natalie’s Motoworks / Can-Am teammate Joel Hetrick finished fourth while Canadian Can-Am X-Team racer Richard Pelchat took seventh on his DS 450.

            John Natalie ATVMX“It was another great weekend of racing, as our Can-Am riders battled hard to earn two spots on the Pro podium in Unadilla, N.Y. Josh Creamer had a memorable return to the AMA ATV MX National series convincingly winning the first moto and ending up second overall. Motoworks / Can-Am pilot John Natalie earned a hard-fought third-place finish and kept himself in the championship points race with only two rounds remaining,” says Jimmie O’Dell, race manager, Can-Am. “Joel Hetrick just missed the podium, finishing fourth, but gained some valuable points in his pursuit to remain in the top three in the Pro class points race.”

            Holeshots were critical in New York as the famed Unadilla Valley Sports Center played hard and fast with limited lines to pass. Creamer, BCS Performance / Can-Am racer and current New England ATV Motocross series Pro class points leader, proved he could still run with the top ATV pros as he grabbed the holeshot and immediately pulled to a three-second lead. Creamer held the lead the entire moto on his way to earning his first moto victory in almost two years. Creamer was fourth at the start of moto two, but moved up to second — passing Natalie — at one point before settling for third. His 1-3 finishes were good for second overall and his first AMA series Pro class podium since 2010.
