Thomas-Brown-ATV-MX-8-12-13HURRICANE MILLS, Tenn. – It wouldn’t seem right if the 2013 Mtn. Dew ATV Motocross National Championship, sanctioned by AMA, didn’t have some rain fall for the final round of racing at the Loretta Lynn Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tenn. With the most mud races the series has had in a single season, Mother Nature has played more than her part in the 10-round race series. But as clear skies came through in the afternoon, Saturday’s track shaped up to give spectators some great racing.

Wienen Motorsports SSi Walsh Yamaha presented by Maxxis Tires & Team Vollmer rider Thomas Brown won his first ever Pro class overall at Loretta Lynn’s. Brown made his pro debute in 2009 and has been working towards his life goal since. Brown has been present on the podium at all but two rounds this season and was able to secure second place overall for the 2013 Championship points this weekend.

AMA-Amateur-Nationals-8-1-13HURRICANE MILLS, Tenn. – Wednesday’s weather conditions added a slight turn of events for day two of racing from the 2013 Red Bull AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship presented by AMSOIL. Heavy rainfall filled the grounds overnight at the Loretta Lynn Ranch but it wasn’t enough to stop the first few of the day’s scheduled motos. However, the in-climate weather continued through the first three motos, where the racing was eventually brought to a halt by 9 a.m. in order to allow the storm to pass.

All hands were on deck as the track crew worked tirelessly to provide optimum track conditions for the racers. The moto order resumed at 3 p.m. with a modified racetrack as the Senior (40+) division kicked off the second half of the day.

The first moto of the morning was the Two-Stroke B/C (16+) and despite the muddy track conditions, underdog Jerry Robin (85) took the Moto 1 win on a borrowed 2007 CR 250 after his 1985 CR 250 broke down during practice. Robin then raced his ’85 in the 250 B class where he captured an impressive ninth place on his vintage machine.

Morgantown, W. Va. (January 9, 2013) – Racer Productions announces today a change in the 2013 Grand National Cross Country Series schedule. After 29 remarkable years at the Loretta Lynn Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tenn., the oldest race on the GNCC circuit will not return to the schedule in 2013.

“Due to a scheduling conflict, the Loretta Lynn’s venue will not be on the GNCC schedule for 2013,” said GNCC Event Director, Dean VanLeeuwen. “Loretta’s has given us nearly 30 years of good racing and we’re looking forward to possibly returning to the ranch in the future.”

Hurricane Mills, Tenn. – Another piece of history was made at the Loretta Lynn Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tenn. as Chad Wienen clinched his first-ever AMA Pro ATV championship, also giving Factory Yamaha its first-ever title in the Pro ATVMX division. Saturday’s finale of the 2012 AMA ATV Motocross National Championship Series boasted some of the most exciting race-battles of the year, but it was the 2012 champion Wienen that grabbed the spotlight.

Wienen opened the 2012 season with a big win for his all-new Wienen Motorsports/SSi Decals/Walsh Race Craft/Yamaha team, ultimately winning six of ten rounds in the series. Perhaps the biggest feat of all for the 27-year-old was bouncing back from a serious back injury that kept him out of the final four races of 2011.

Hurricane Mills, Tenn. – As the penultimate day of racing comes to a close in the 2012 Red Bull AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship presented by Amsoil, 24 National Champions were crowned and several others received top honors in their respective classes. In addition to leaving the Loretta Lynn Ranch with a coveted National Championship, riders who topped their class also went home with a Specialized p.series bike, and of course, the Red Bull Sword championship trophy.

Almost all of the day’s race action was noteworthy for one reason or another, but arguably the best racing of the day came from Yamaha’s Cooper Webb and Honda’s Shane Mcelrath in the 250 B Stock final. Heading into Moto 3 the two riders were tied with one race-win apiece, and after a hard fought battle to the end, it was North Carolina’s Webb who claimed the class championship over a very tenacious Mcelrath. Both riders have a shot at winning another title tomorrow in the second half of the moto finales.

With a heavy lineup of front-runners in the Junior 25+ class, the final moto was highly anticipated and spectators from all ends of the ranch lined the fences to watch The-Greatest-of-All-Time Ricky Carmichael grab his tenth Amateur National Championship title. It wasn’t without a little bit of pressure by 8-Time Amateur National Champion Robbie Reynard, who clinched the eighth title in the Vet 35+ class earlier in the day. Reynard caught and passed Carmichael on the opening lap of the 25+ Moto 3, where he led the G.O.A.T for a couple laps before fading back a bit, ultimately finishing eight seconds behind for second. Mike Sleeter put in a notable ride to finish third in the race and fourth overall, just behind Andrew Matusek in third.
