Wimmer Leads AMA ATV Motocross Field to Pell City This Weekend

Pell City, Al. ‚ (March 19, 2009) - The top motocross riders on four-wheels head to round two of the chase for the most prestigious championship in their sport this Sunday at the legendary Millcreek Motocross Park in Pell City, Alabama, just outside of Birmingham. The event features the pro portion of the AMA ATV Motocross Championship, and also serves as the opening round of the amateur portion of the Moose Racing/ITP Tires AMA ATV Motocross Championship presented by Parts Unlimited.

Mill Creek Raceway has become a favorite on the tour, as the track features wide lanes, flowing natural jumps and enormous elevation changes. Tickets on Sunday are $15 for fans ($10 for ages 6-11), and admission includes full pro pit access, and an autograph session. As part of the event, Moose Racing and Parts Unlimited will host a dinner show at the track on Saturday night, with dinner served free to racers and their families.

The Center Valley, Pa. resident expects a challenge at Mill Creek from Joe Byrd, the 2006 and 2007 AMA Pro Motocross Series' Champion on a Honda from Union City, Tennessee who came in third at Glen Helen. Josh Creamer, of the Monster Energy Kawasaki team, took second at Glen Helen and could prove to be Wimmer's toughest competitor this season. In addition, nationally-recognized stars including Doug Gust, John Natalie, Jeremy Lawson, Chad Wienen will make up a full gate of talent in the pro class, backed by high-budget factory race teams. Hometown hero, Keith Little of Spruce Pine, Ala., will also be there on his Monster Energy Kawasaki.

The pro class will feature two 20-minute races on Sunday, taking place at noon and 3 p.m., with the combined scores of both races determining the overall winner.
