Title: Mitch Reynolds Racing Update - ATVA High Point

Body: Greenbriar, AR -- The 6th round of the ITP Tires Moose Racing AMA/ATVA National Motocross Championship presented by Parts Unlimited was held this Memorial Day Weekend at High Point Raceway. Sunny skies and warm weather were welcomed in for a change of pace in the 2008 season. "We came into this event very focused on what we had to do, we have not had a good season up to this point and really needed some good results" Mitch Reynolds stated as he looked forward to turning around his luck so far this season.

When Saturday rolled around, Mitch was focused and ready to turn his season around. When the gate dropped, he charged the uphill start and would edge out the other riders to claim the holeshot and take command of the lead. He would hold the lead and go onto take a moto one win. After the moto he stated, "we did some testing leading up to this race and really got the JB Racing, Baldwin, PEP, Sunrise Honda dialed in." Dialed in may have been an understatement, as he would pull strong on the holeshot and cross the finish line in third. His 1-3 moto finishes would net him an overall win.

Carrying his momentum, Mitch would take on a heavily talented Pro-Am Production class in Moto #1. A third place finish would set him up with a good gate pick in the final moto. Against 20 of the next generation of Pro Riders, he would have to push hard to overcome a less than favorable start. Climbing all the way to second place, his moto finishes pushed him into second place overall on the day. After the race Mitch chatted about his moto, "I got a good start but I drifted wide in turn one and let several riders past heading for turn two. It took me some time to get those positions back and by that time the leader had checked out on us".  Proving he has been hard at work on conditioning, Mitch ran faster lap times on the last three laps than the leader. "I am really happy with my results this weekend, not just for myself but for my sponsors as well. I could not be where I'm at today without all of their help and support"
