Morgantown, W.Va. (March 15, 2011) – The second round of the 2011 AMA ATVMX Championship presented by DWT, will head to Pell City, Ala. this weekend, March 19-20. The fastest four-wheeled ATV riders in the world will compete for a chance at the championship title.
This nationally televised event on the VERSUS network is expected to draw nearly 800 riders. With a full-gate of ATV Pro riders for 2011, there is no telling who is going to claim the series championship.
Motoworks / Can-Am rider Chad Wienen took the victory at round one in Georgia, winning both motos and claiming the early points lead in the Pro class. Teammate John Natalie settled in behind Wienen to carry the Motoworks / Can-Am team to two out of three podium positions.
After finishing with a third overall in round one, Baldwin Motorsports Honda rider Josh Upperman has great potential to contest the Can-Am teammates next weekend at Millcreek. Walsh Race Crafts Suzuki rider Jeremy Lawson and Joe Byrd Quad Racing School’s Joe Byrd had a heated battle for the fourth overall, with Lawson coming out on top. These two riders have some unfinished business that is sure to make things interesting at round two.
The Millcreek facility is surrounded by beautiful hard woods, pine, creeks and rolling hills. With its wide lanes, flowing natural jumps and enormous elevation changes, the track exceeds two miles in length from the starting gate to finish.
The pro riders will run as part of a full schedule of amateur racing, including classes for Youth, Women and Veteran riders. Amateurs will practice on Friday and race on Saturday and Sunday. Pros will practice on Friday and race on Saturday.
