ProX ATV MX – Unadilla – Round 9

By | AMA | No Comments

NEW BERLIN, N.Y. (July 16, 2016) – The 2016 ProX ATV Motocross National Championship (ATVMX) presented by CST Tires, an AMA National Championship, continued today in the Empire State with the Unadilla ATV National.  Wienen Motorsports/Yamaha/Maxxis/SSi Decals/Walsh Racecraft/FLY Racing’s Chad Wienen posted a dominate 2-1 moto tally at the ninth round of the season to earn his fourth AMA Pro ATV victory of the season and continue his quest for his fifth straight national title.

The iconic Unadilla circuit in Central New York was graced with picture-perfect weather, and for the sixth time Joel Hetrick kicked off the day by earning the ATVriders.com Top Qualifier Award. The speed Hetrick showed early easily carried into the motos, where he was able to take advantage of having the first gate pick.

When Moto 1 got underway, Jeffrey Rastrelli edged out the rest of the field to score his first ever SSI Decals Holeshot Award. With a clean track in front of him Rastrelli quickly set the pace. It would not take long for Rastrelli to feel the pressure from Hetrick and Wienen Motorsports/Yamaha/Maxxis/SSi Decals/Walsh Racecraft/FLY Racing-backed Chad Wienen where mere seconds separated the riders as they crossed the finish line for the first compete lap.

The three continued riding wheel-to-wheel when with only two laps to go it was an all-out drag race through the mechanics area with Hetrick and Rastrelli side-by-side. Rastrelli held onto first, but just a few turns later Hetrick made the pass for the lead.

Once the white flag was waving, Wienen put on a last minute charge with the Unadilla fans cheering him on to make the pass for second with Rastrelli crossing the line in third.  David Haagsma rode a consistent race finishing in fourth and Maxxis/FLY Racing/Baldwin Motorsports’ John Natalie rounded out the top five.

Moto 2 resulted in a considerably better start for Wienen where he grabbed the SSI Decals Holeshot Award with Root River Racing/Motowoz Shocks/JB Racing/Amped Apparel/Hoosier Tires’ Sam Rowe in tow right behind him. Natalie was also in the mix where he looked to fend off Hetrick and Rastrelli who were eager to move up in the pack.

The ProX ATVMX series moves west for the RedBud ATV National in Buchanan, Michigan in two weeks, July 30.

ProX ATV MX – Spring Creek – Round 8

By | AMA | No Comments

Millville, MN – Maxxis/Elka Suspension/Liquid Wrench’s Joel Hetrick made the first statement of the day earning the ATVriders.com Top Qualifier Award where he turned the fastest lap time during both the timed qualifying sessions. As the ATVMX pros lined up on the gate for the first moto Hetrick looked to continue his speed and take home a win.

When the gate dropped on Moto 1 Hetrick picked up right where he left off and found himself in a favorable position to earn the SSi Decals Holeshot Award. With a clear track in front of him Hetrick slowly started pulling away from the rest of the field.

Meanwhile, his biggest competition, Wienen, found himself stuck in the middle of the pack and had to make quick work to be a front-runner. Even though he made quickly passed majority of the field, Hetrick capitalized on the situation and had a large gap.

JB Racing/Root River Racing/Gold Speed Tires-backed Jeffrey Rastrelli attempted to take control of the lead from Hetrick where he ran in a podium position until a mechanical issue ultimately took him out of the race.

Rastrelli’s misfortune allowed Wienen to slide into second, but Hetrick would remain cool and confident to take the win. Wienen and Maxxis/Liquid Wrench/Elka Suspension/Honda’s David Haagsma followed in second and third.

Wienen showcased his toughness and resiliency in Moto 2 when he came out of the first turn with the lead and the SSi Decals Holeshot Award. Wienen’s veteran experience came into play when he immediately felt pressure from Hetrick. Wienen continued to push, but Hetrick would start to fade back around the halfway point of the race. A 2-1 moto score earned Wienen the overall win with Hetrick finishing in the runner-up spot (1-2).

“I had a solid day today,” said Wienen. “I had a not so good start in moto one and had to battle through the pack from an eighth place start. Overall everything felt good but I knew I needed to get a better start in the second moto. I was able to pull the holeshot and I had pressure from Hetrick for a few laps, but then started to click off some good laps and pull a nice gap until the finish. I have to thank my Wienen Motorsports Yamaha team backed by Maxxis, SSi Decals, Walsh Racecraft, 7240 Team and the rest of my support group for their efforts.”

Haagsma maintained the third place position throughout the entire second moto with a comfortable lead over Rastrelli in fourth. With two respectable motos Haagsma earned his second overall podium of the season with third. Root River Racing/Hoosier Tires/Rage ATV’s Josh Upperman (5-5) and Maxxis/Root River Racing/JB Racing’s Thomas Brown (4-7) round out the top five finishers at the Spring Creek ATVMX National.

The ProX ATVMX series moves to the Empire State in two weeks, July 16, for the Unadilla ATMX National in New Berlin, New York.

ProX ATV MX – Monster Mountain – Round 6 – Natalie takes 3rd

By | AMA | No Comments

Tallassee, AL – JB Racing/Root River Racing/Gold Speed Tires’ Jeffrey Rastrelli was busy working his way up from a sixth place start where he was able to pass Musick and Maxxis/FLY Racing/Baldwin Motorsports’ John Natalie to take third in the first moto.

Maxxis/FLY Racing/Baldwin Motorsports’s John Natalie would jump out to the early lead and claim the SSi Decals Holeshot Award for the second moto. Natalie used the open track to his advantage where he would continue leading for the first few laps, while Wienen and Hetrick were engaging in their own battle in second and third.

“The track turned out great this weekend,” said Natalie. “I didn’t do so well in qualifying, but was able to make some adjustments to pull the holeshot in the second moto and come away with a third overall for the weekend.”

Wienen and Hetrick were able to pass Natalie on the fourth lap where they would eventually come in contact together as they entered the pro section of the race course. Wienen would end up spinning out due to the hit from Hetrick and flip over which allowed for Hetrick to move into the lead position and check out on the rest of the pro field. While Natalie would slide into second, Wienen would quickly recover to run in third and then make the pass back for second.

With a pair of 1-1 moto finishes Hetrick took home the Monster Mountain National win, followed by Wienen (2-2) and Natalie (4-3).

ProX ATV MX – Ironman Raceway – Round 4 – Natalie takes 9th

By | AMA | No Comments

Crawfordsville, IN – Hetrick made quick work and moved into second on the second lap, with Upperman remaining in third. Perhaps one of the best battles of the race was for the fourth place position between Rastrelli, Maxxis/Root River Racing/JB Racing’s Thomas Brown and Maxxis/FLY Racing/Baldwin Motorsports’ John Natalie. The three racers continued to switch places throughout the latter half of the race.

Wienen would end up seeing the checkered flag first followed by Hetrick and Upperman. With the battle for fourth winding down with a couple of laps remaining it was Rastrelli taking the position followed by Natalie in fifth and Brown in sixth.

Unfortunately both Brown and Natalie would have issues ultimately taking them out of the second moto where they would finish eighth and ninth overall.

ProX ATV MX – Muddy Creek – Round 3 – Natalie takes 3rd

By | AMA | No Comments

Blountville, TN – 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.

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.”

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.

ProX ATV MX – The Underground MX Park – Round 2 – Natalie takes 3rd

By | AMA | No Comments

Kemp, TX – Rain began to fall right before the second moto began creating quite the opposite track conditions than the racers experienced in the first moto. However, once the gate dropped it was much the same story with Wienen once again pulling the holeshot and Natalie following his tracks. After falling back to fourth in the first moto, Natalie was able to hold onto the second place position earning him third overall.

“I ended up stalling my bike over one of the jumps and that let Rastrelli and Brown get around me in the first moto,” said Natalie. “I was able to pass Rastrelli, but just ran out of time when I was finally able to get Brown in sight. The second moto went much better. I suffered from roost, but it feels great to end up on the podium.”

ProX ATV MX – 2nd Annual Daytona Supercross – Natalie Takes 4th Overall

By | AMA | No Comments

Daytona, FL – When the gate dropped it was Maxxis/FLY Racing/Baldwin Motorsports’ John Natalie who led the way through the first turn which earned him the $100 Bell Helmets Holeshot Award, but he was closely followed by Wienen and Hetrick.

Wienen quickly got to work and passed Natalie for the lead, leaving a battle behind him for second place. Unfortunately, a race mistake would end up taking Hetrick out of the race after landing on Natalie’s back fender. That allowed Brown and Rastrelli to move up a spot and set their sights on passing Natalie. The veteran Natalie would not flinch and held his line making it tough for Brown to pass.
