WIMMER GOES FIVE FOR FIVE, WINS FIRST MOTO AT BALLANCE MOTO X

 

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (April 13, 2008) -- Dustin Wimmer continued his quest for perfection in the ITP Tires/Moose Racing AMA/ATVA Pro ATV Championship Series presented by Parts Unlimited, winning Moto 1 Sunday at Ballance Moto X. Wimmer (191 Team MSR/Suzuki/Yoshimura/Pro Taper) remains perfect in ATV Motocross competition by winning his fifth consecutive Pro Moto.

 

John Natalie (No. 13 Can-Am) took the Suspension Systems Holeshot Award and dominated the early laps of the race. However, Natalie went wide in the NASCAR turn on lap seven and went off the track. Wimmer took the lead and dominated the event. Natalie was unhurt and returned to the track to finish 17th. Doug Gust (No. 55 Team Rockstar/MSR/Suzuki/Yoshimura/Pro Taper) finished second, ahead of the No. 9 Monster Energy Drink/Kawasaki of Josh Creamer.

 

"Fortunately for me, John (Natalie) came off the bike, but you have to make the most of your opportunities," said Wimmer. "I was catching him a little bit before that, and luckily I was where I needed to be when I needed to be there.

 

"I'm thinking about six in a row," added Wimmer, talking about today's second moto. "How can't you?"

 

Moto 2 is scheduled for 3 p.m. today. Please stay tuned to ATVMotocross.com for a full report of Pro racing from this weekend, as well as a report on the Amateur, Youth and Women's classes.
