It’s been a wild first two round of the 2013 Mtn. Dew ATV Motocross National Championship, sanctioned by AMA, with defending champion Chad Wienen and young gun Joel Hetrick each taking a win. Round 3 of the 10-race series, the Maxxis Bluegrass National, takes place this weekend at the Ballance Moto X track in Bowling Green, Ky.
Hetrick took the overall win at Round 2 by sweeping both motos on his Corrosion Hetrick Racing machine, closing the gap on the series points leader Wienen, now trailing by one. With the speed and determination to lead the field, the twenty-year old has proven he has what it takes to contest the championship.
Wienen will attempt to protect the national title amongst a hungry field of ATVMX Pros. The Wienen Motorsports SSi Walsh Yamaha presented by Maxxis Tires & Team Vollmer rider has found himself on the podium at both events thus far and continues to lead the field heading to Bowling Green.
For the first time in his pro career, Thomas Brown has found himself in the championship chase early in the season. New to the Wienen Motorsports SSi Walsh Yamaha presented by Maxxis Tires & Team Vollmer team, Brown landed on the podium in the third place position each round, slowly looking to secure a spot in the middle.
