DANVILLE, Va. – The 2013 Mtn. Dew ATV Motocross National Championship, sanctioned by AMA, once again put on a show for ATVMX fans despite undesirable weather conditions at Round 6. After steady rainfall prior to the weekend, the weather finally cleared for Saturday’s Pro race. The Bob “Smitty” Smith Memorial ATV National showcased tight racing all afternoon in Danville, Va., where series points leader and defending champion Chad Wienen claimed his fourth consecutive overall win of the season.
“I wish the weather was something we could control but I’m just really glad we have our mud set up dialed in and we have our machines working really well. You never know what is going to happen in the mud but I’m always thrilled to come out of a weekend that can go any which way on the box and still holding onto the red plate,” said Wienen.
Two-time national champion Joe Byrd snagged the moto 1 SSi Decals Holeshot award aboard his Joe Byrd Quad Riding School Dasa machine in front of a raging field. “I knew the start was going to be crucial and that I had to get a great jump. My machine was set up well and was really hooking up to pull me to top of the hill first,” said Byrd.
