Tune-In Alert: ATV Motocross from Underground MX
on MAVTV Saturday, June 9 at 9:30 AM ET
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (June 8, 2018) – Tune in to MAVTV this Saturday, June 9 at 9:30 a.m. ET for the ATV Motocross National Championship (ATVMX) presented by CST Tires to watch round three – the Underground ATVMX National highlight show from Kemp, Texas.
Don’t miss all the action as the ATVMX Series headed deep into the lonestar state for a showdown that would rival any old western tale ever told. A crazy swing in temperatures preceded by a night filled with high winds and heavy rains, the racers would be very skeptical as to how well the track at Underground MX would shape up. However, by the time practice started the track was almost perfect as a drying wind and strong sun helped turn things around and in favor of the racers and crew.
While the first moto was exciting, moto two started to build its own level of intensity, as everyone knew Wienen was gunning for the win. The start was once again a few seconds of chaos as the pro class fired off the gate and headed for the first turn. Just as in moto one, Hetrick would clinch the holeshot and build on his success from moto one.
However, some misfortune struck Hetrick and he ended up high siding a berm in the same spot as he did last year allowing Wienen a wide-open pass, which he took full advantage of, and ran away with the moto two and overall win at round three. As Hetrick did his best to get his Honda unstuck and re-fired, his chances for a podium were looking slim.
Behind the leaders, Jeffrey Rastrelli was locked in a duel with Thomas Brown nearly the entire second moto. For several laps Rastrelli shadowed Brown, and then they would swap positions and battle through more laps seemingly equally matched. The brawl ended, and you can tune into MAVTV to see how it all played out.
