finish in both motos, dominating the field at one of the roughest track

"This weekend went really well for me" Josh Creamer said. "I was
able to put the Rockstar Makita Suzuki back on top again, and further
my points lead. What can I say? That's a great weekend."
Rockstar Makita Suzuki's Dustin Wimmer started the weekend off on a
high note when he won the ATVRiders.com $100 Fastest Qualifier award,
just tenths of a second faster than teammate Creamer, and in the

Creamer leads the pack in the second moto.
Creamer may have had the second gate pick, but that didn't keep him
from earning the $250 MotorcycleUSA.com holeshot award. With Creamer to
an early lead, the real action was taking place in the rear of the
pack. Can-Am/Motoworks Chad Wienen started the first moto with a mid
pack holeshot, and immediately began to pass through the field.
Throughout the race, he passed a rider every few laps, finally making
it to the 2nd spot just before the white flag began waving. Dustin Wimmer on the other hand was biding his time in the 5th
spot for the majority of the first moto, but made up two positions in
just the last 4 laps of the race, passing John Natalie just shy of the
white flag for the third spot.

two started with Creamer earning another $250 MotorcycleUSA.com
holeshot award. As Creamer leaped out to the early lead, Wienen was in
the rear of the field battling for track position. By the end of the
first straight away, he had already passed a number of riders, and by
the end of the first lap, was already into the fifth position. On the
sixith lap, Wienen passed his teammate John Natalie, and both moved
into the second and third spot respectively. Wimmer finished behind the
Can-Am teammates in the forth position.
Chad Wienen made it to the podium for the first time in the 2010 season.
"Things are starting to come together" said Wienen, who has
struggled all season long. "I had a lot of fun here. The track was
really rough, but it made us really creative with our lines."
Wienen earned the 2nd spot overall, marking his first time on the podium in the 2010 season.
"The track was really rough this weekend" John Natalie said after
the second moto. "I haven't been training like I should have to be able
to hold on. The bike worked awesome, the only work I have to do before
Muddy Creek is on myself."
In the Pro-Am Production class, Joel Hetrick continued his success
with wins in both motos. In the first moto, Joel earned the $100 Idol
Speed holeshot award, and was able to run away from the rest of the
pack. Aaron Meyer earned the second moto $100 Idol Speed holeshot
award. Chase Snapp was able to leave the weekend with the second
overall, and Travis Moore again took the third spot.
