2016-017 ATVMX-Hetrick Claims First Win of the Season at Muddy Creek National

Hetrick Claims First Win of the Season at Muddy Creek National

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (April 23, 2016) – The 2016 ProX ATV Motocross National Championship (ATVMX) presented by CST Tires, an AMA National Championship, continued today, April 23, at the iconic Muddy Creek Raceway in Blountville, Tennessee. With the presence of overcast skies the track shaped up nicely after rain showers the day before. Maxxis/Elka Suspension/Liquid Wrench’s Joel Hetrick was able to quickly adjust to the changing track conditions to take home his first win of the season.

Overall Podium: (2) Chad Wienen, (1) Joel Hetrick, (3) John Natalie Photo: Ken Hill

As the gate dropped for the first moto it would be Maxxis/Liquid Wrench/Elka Suspension/Honda-backed David Haagsma who jumped out to the early lead ultimately claiming his first SSI Decals Holeshot Award of the season. However, it would not take long for his teammate, Hetrick, to make the pass for the lead and earn valuable seconds on the rest of the class.

Meanwhile, Wienen Motorsports/Yamaha/Maxxis/SSi Decals/Walsh Racecraft/FLY Racing’s Chad Wienen was busy working his way up from a sixth place start. Wienen was able to make quick work on majority of the racers but was set to battle for the second place position with Maxxis/Root River Racing/JB Racing’s Thomas Brown.

The top three racers consisting of Hetrick, Brown and Wienen were able to pull away from the rest of the pro class by the midway point of the moto. While Hetrick was running his own race, the Texas Native Brown and defending champion Wienen were wheel-to-wheel resulting in some of the best racing thus far in the season.

Hetrick encountered a spinout in a turn just after seeing the white flag, allowing Brown and Wienen to catch back up to him creating a three-way-race for the win. However, the positions would stay the same as they crossed the finish line with Hetrick taking gold in the first moto followed by Brown and Wienen.

Once the 30-second card turned sideways and the gate dropped for the second moto there was the familiar face of Maxxis/FLY Racing/Baldwin Motorsports’ John Natalie getting the early lead and earning the second SSI Decals Holeshot Award of the day. Unfortunately Brown overshot a turn going over a berm early in the race, and by the time he was able to rebound and get back onto the track he had already lost valuable positions needed to find himself on the box at the end of the moto.

When asked about the key to his consistency, Natalie said that his experience is what helps him when it comes to putting in top finishes. “There was a lot of rain yesterday to deal with, but I think the track ended up turning out pretty well,” said Natalie. “Sometimes I’m not the fastest guy out there, but I find myself on the podium because of my experience.”

Wienen was able to improve his start position where he sat third as they checked through timing and scoring for the first time. Just like the first moto, the top three racers gapped the rest of the field, but this time there was a different addition to the group. Jeffrey Rastrelli was the second fastest qualifier and the JB Racing/Root River Racing/Gold Speed Tires-backed rider found himself sitting in second during the second moto, until Wienen made the pass in the back rhythm section putting Rastrelli into third.

As soon as Wienen moved into the runner-up position, Natalie spun out in the same turn that Hetrick was a victim of during the first moto ultimately giving up the lead to Wienen. Once the Illinois native was out in the clear he was untouchable.

Hetrick would start the second moto in fourth, but worked his way past Rastrelli and Natalie for second where his set of 1-2 finishes were good enough to vault him to the top and claim the overall win. Wienen and Natalie would round out the podium behind Hetrick.

“The first moto went smoothly for me,” said Hetrick. “I was able pull off the win and I knew I just had to get second to take the overall win. I tried to catch Cha, but he was just too far ahead and then I got a little winded at the end just because I haven’t been able to train like I need to due to my knee.”

Brown would finish just off the podium in fourth, followed by Rastrelli in fifth and Root River Racing/Hoosier Tires/Rage ATV’s Josh Upperman in sixth. Haagsma grabbed a fifth and eight place which placed him in seventh overall with AGX Designs/Walsh Racecraft/Maxxis-backed Nick Gennusa in eighth. Koster Racing/Blommel Motorsports/Walsh Racecraft’s Brett Musick and Factory Honda’s Joe Byrd finish out the top ten.

The ATVMX circuit travels to the motorsports crazed town of Crawfordsville, Indiana in two weeks, May 7 and 8, for the Ironman National to be held at the popular Ironman Raceway.

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki Finishes In The Top 10

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki Finishes In The Top 10

Corona, Calif. (April 18, 2016) –  The Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team arrived at The Dome at America’s Center in St. Louis looking to advance in the Eastern Regional 250SX Championship point standings. Wasting no time,Tyler Bowers and Gannon Audette quickly set the tone for the day during qualifying. Tyler logged the fastest lap in early morning qualifying and both riders found themselves advancing to the Main Event. The evening would end with Gannon finishing in 5th and Tyler in 9th.

Bowers Stays Hungry
Finishing qualifying with the fastest lap time, Tyler Bowers quickly advanced to the evening’s Main Event. In the final race, a collision with another rider would set him back a few positions. Tyler finished his night in 9th place and remains in 5th in the point standings.

“My weekend started pretty good,” said Bowers. Early in the day I was in the top three, my Kawasaki felt really good, and I sorted out a few minor issues in my heat. The big pileup in the first turn of the main completely stopped me and straight off I knew I had my work cut out for me. I put my head down and started clicking off passes. Unfortunately the hard push at the beginning of the race gave me arm pump towards the end and I wasn’t able to finish where I feel I belong. Time to put it behind us and look towards next weekend.”

Audette Stays Focused 

In the St. Louis Main Event, Gannon Audette nearly took the holeshot aboard his KX250F. Continuing to rely on his speed, he pushed himself throughout the entire night to remain at the front of the pack. After falling behind due to an entanglement with another rider, he quickly began climbing his way back to the top. Finishing strong, Gannon Audette placed 5th in the Main and now resides in 6th in the point standings.

“It was another good weekend. We made progress in practice and went into the night show eighth fastest. Learned a bit more in my heat where I finished fourth. In the main I had another great start in second until a rider passed me and then almost immediately stalled in my line. While avoiding him I caught a tough block and ended up with a minor tip over. From there I just tried to put my laps together and came home with a fifth. Overall I feel it was a good weekend, not quite the podium I wanted but it’s hard to complain about a top five. I’d like to give a special thanks to the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team for this incredible opportunity, I’m really looking forward to Foxboro next weekend.”

Although Bowers is currently in 6th for the Point Standings, you can believe the fire in him is more than ready to ignite as he is ready for redemption and is looking to capitalize in Detroit and rounds to come.

Tonus Ready For A Podium
Arnaud Tonus had yet another much improved performance last weekend, qualifying directly into the main after his heat race. At the start of the main event, Tonus would get stuck within the giant jam up, pushing him to back, but would regain his momentum and aggressively move his way up to finish right ahead of his fellow teammate in 10th. Arnaud Tonus currently sits in 12th place for the Eastern Point Standings but he is determined to move up in that list, by executing what he’s practiced on and take Detroit by storm this Saturday.

I’m looking forward to Detroit and moving forward.”

Bowers Takes First Heat Victory Of The Season In Toronto
Tyler Bowers had his eyes sit on a victory this weekend in Toronto, starting with his first heat victory of the season.

“Tonight was an improvement, I felt really good in practice and had a good plan for the night, which paid off with a heat win. I tried to stick with the same plan and keep it smooth for the Main Event, when I decided to make my move for the lead I made a mistake and went down. I picked myself up and fought back for as many points as possible. All things considered I’m happy to have my Heat Race win.”
