Dustin Wimmer continued his perfect season when he swept both AMA Pro ATV motos during the FMF Spring National at Millcreek Raceway on March 30 in Pell City, Ala.

Wimmer also swept both motos in the season-opening event three weeks ago as he has dominated the early part of the 2008 ITP Tires/Moose Racing AMA/ATVA ATV Championship Series.

After winning the first moto, the Team MSR/Suzuki/Yoshimura/Pro Taper rider started in fifth in the second moto. He quickly crawled through the field, taking the lead from Can-Am’s John Natalie on lap eight.

“This is great,” says Wimmer. “This has just been a dream weekend. We were fast all weekend and my hat’s off to Team Suzuki for all of its efforts.”

Honda’s Joe Byrd finished 4-3 in the two motos, which was good for second place on the day. Suzuki’s Doug Gust went 6-2 in the two motos on his way to finishing third.

With his back-to-back victories, Wimmer is way out in front in the points race with 100. Chad Weinen and Gust are tied for second with 69 points each, giving Suzuki the top three spots in the standings.

Round 3 of the series takes place on April 12 to 13 at Ballance Moto X in Bowling Green, Ky.

“I like Kentucky,” says Wimmer. “It’s a little tight, but we’re going to make it work.”
