With four Pro class podiums this year, including three overall wins, Joel Hetrick is putting together the best season of his professional ATV racing career. Hetrick is challenging reigning ATV Pro Motocross champ Chad Wienen who has run away with the championship each of the last three years. Had it not been for a disappointing 18th place finish at round one, Hetrick would likely be leading the points battle in the fight for the championship. Ripitup Films recently spent a day with Joel Hetrick, giving viewers an inside look at how the young gun is aiming to dethrone the champ.
