Chad Wienen and Thomas Brown celebrate a successful ATV Motocross Season.
Yamaha Racing’s Chad Wienen captured his third straight AMA Pro ATV MX Series Championship last weekend, and his Yamaha and Wienen Motorsports teammate Thomas Brown took third overall for the season.
The pair have been riding their YFZ450Rs to the top of the podium all season capping 2014 with first and third place finishes at the finale at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tenn., on Saturday, August 9. Wienen scored 1-2 on the day for an overall win, while Brown grabbed 2-3 giving him third overall at Loretta’s.
Bomb Squad Racing has announced that 2010 AMA ATV MX champion Josh Creamer will be leaving the Bomb Squad WORCS team to race the New England Motocross series for the powerhouse Motorworks/DWT team.
“We’d really like to keep Josh out here racing the WORCS series, but when a factory level team comes knocking it’s hard to stand in the way of that”, says H-Bomb Media guru Wes Miller. “We lost one of our key sponsors a few weeks before the Havasu round, so it’s been quite a scramble getting back on the gas. We worked hard and had things pulled back together… but this deal came along and it’s a really good situation for Josh. We would have loved to finish out the WORCS season , but Josh’s heart is in Motocross, and this is a good resolution all the way around. Winning Primm was icing on the cake for the Bomb Squad. Now we’re going to re-focus on our Baja efforts, the Moore Brothers, and making great television.”
Though Creamer’s roots were in ATV motocross, he adapted quickly to the world of WORCS racing. After a hard fought fourth place finish at the opening round in Taft, Calif., Creamer came back to take the win at the second round in Primm, Nev.
“The Bomb Squad guys were great,” says Creamer. “They really busted their butts to make things happen for me, and I really appreciate it. I want to thank Wes and those guys for being cool about this opportunity with Motorworks/DWT. I look forward to really going after the New England Motocross title. After all, it’s in my back yard.”
