Creamer Wins Pro, Pro-Am Classes at NEATV-MX Round 8
Motoworks / Can-Am ATV racer Josh Creamer overcame the excessively muddy conditions at MX 207 to win the Pro class at round eight of the New England ATV Motocross Series in Lyman, Maine. Creamer also won the Pro-Am class aboard his Can-Am DS 450 ATV. Series points leader, Dustin Wimmer finished second to Creamer in both classes. BCS Performance / Can-Am DS 450 racer Cody Miller earned two podiums as well, taking third overall in each class.
“With his outstanding weekend performance, Creamer has dramatically closed up the Pro class points championship race and sits only four points behind the leader with four rounds of racing remaining,” says Jimmie O’Dell, race manager, Can-Am. “He continues to impress on the DS 450 and his performance in the slick, muddy track was incredible.”
Creamer jumped out to an early lead in moto one, grabbing the holeshot, and held off another racer for the win. Moto two was even more challenging as Creamer, who took another holeshot, dropped back to second place during the early part of the race before making a pass and rallying for the win. His 1-1 finish gave him a 10-point cushion over second place at round eight. With his third overall victory, he now trails the Wimmer by just four points heading into round nine, which is to be held Aug. 21 at Raceway Park in Englishtown, N.J.
“I had a good day even with all the mud,” says Creamer. “I knew a good start was needed, so I just did my best to get out front and stay there. I’m looking forward to the next round at E-Town. Hopefully we’ll get a little better weather for that one.”
Dustin Wimmer Part of New ATV Film [video]
Blake Shipman, one of the premiere ATV/freestyle filmmakers, spent some time with ATV motocross champion Dustin Wimmer to shoot for “Revolutionary,” his new ATV film that will be released this fall.
Shipman loaded a three-and-a-half minute teaser of Wimmer footage on YouTube to whet your appetites for the upcoming main course. Check out the video below the jump
As is always the case with Shipman’s videos, production quality is awesome and Wimmer provides him with plenty of nice ATV MX action. It’s always good to see a pro like Wimmer in action, even if it does make us feel inadequate. Consider us hungry for the final cut!
