The 2012 AMA ATV Motocross National Championship
Series kicked off Saturday
at  Aonia Pass MX Park in Washington, Ga., providing
some of the best
racing in  series history, pitting the fastest ATV Motocross
racers in the
country against  one another for two twenty-plus minute motos.
After an
eight-month hiatus from  racing due to a season ending injury in 2011,

Wienen  Motorsports/SSi/Walsh/Yamaha-backed Chad Wienen began the season in a

winning  fashion, going (1-1) for the overall and the early points lead.In
the opening moto of the Pro ATVMX class,
it  was Baldwin Motorports/PEP's
Josh Upperman who grabbed the SSi Decals
Holeshot  Award and led the early
part of the race. It wasn't long before Wienen
powered  his new Yamaha ride
into the lead, though, passing Upperman through the
  fan-filled finish line
section.


While the rest of the
  field
was viewing the track on the site lap, Motoworks/Can-Am's newest
addition, 
Joel Hetrick, was waiting behind the gate while his crew worked to
fix a 
mechanical issue on the ATV. Earlier in the day, Hetrick grabbed the ATVRiders.com fastest Qualifier Award over a

stacked  field of veteran riders, and after finally fixing the ATV in time for

the gate  drop, Hetrick proved it wasn't a fluke as he caught and passed
the
front-runners  and pressured Wienen for the lead spot. Hetrick finally
made a
bold attempt to  pass Wienen for the lead, but in doing so, the

nineteen-year-old went off the  track and was forced to sit the rest of the moto

on the sidelines.


Defending champion,
Motoworks/Can-Am's John
  Natalie, came through the pack and spent a
majority of Moto 1 battling with
  longtime competitor Josh Upperman for the
second place spot. Natalie finally
got  around Upperman in the latter part
of the initial twenty-minutes of racing,
and  although the "Ironman" put a
late charge on the leader as the two-lap card
came  out, Natalie wasn't
able to catch Wienen in time for the
checkers.

In
Moto 2, it was once again the Honda of
Josh  Upperman who took the SSi
Decals Holeshot Award, but the defending champ
Natalie  inched his way out
front right away, fending off a very driven duo of
Wienen and  Uppeman.
Pennsylvania's Derek Swartfager put his Waldo
Motorsports-backed Honda 
inside the top five early in the moto, battling with
Thomas Brown on the
TBROWN  Yamaha powered by Moto-X-Perts machine. Brown led a
tight-pack of
riders who  were battling for the top five positions, including
pro class
rookie Mark Madl,  the 2011 Pro Am Production champion and fifth
fastest
qualifier for the  day.


Meanwhile, Natalie

and  Wienen combated back and fourth in an intense battle for lead. Wienen

chased  Natalie for most of the race, slipping past his former teammate in
a few
spots,  but the most famous line was through the whoop-section and
into the
final corner  before the finish, where Wienen showed his front
tires to the
leader several  times. On the final lap, Wienen made the move
on the defending
champ just one  turn before the finish line, giving Wienen
the overall win and
the points lead  after the first round of
racing.


"This is definitely a moment for
me right
now,"  Wienen said. "To come back like this and just being able to
walk and to
come out  here and do what I love, this is the greatest moment.
We're taking it
one race  at a time, super excited to start the season off
with a (1-1) sweep.
I've been  dreaming about this day (first race back
from injury) and it's
finally coming  on. This is going to be a story for
the books this
year."

Natalie
finished out 
the day with second overall, while Josh Upperman took the final
podium
position  and third place in the championship points

standings.


"I didn't get tired out there
at all today,
  just a couple issues there on the last lap not being able to
shift but we're
  going to go back and fix it to be ready for round two,"
said Natalie. "I really
  liked the track today but I like the rough and
tumble bumps, so I'm ready to go
  to a rougher track where it really
separates the men from the boys."


"I've
really taken my
  training program to another level this year and it's
starting to show," said
  Upperman. "It's boosted my confidence a lot,
because I know what I can do now
  from last year to this year and I'm ready
to make it happen."


Thomas Brown (YAM)

  finished with a (4-5) score to take fourth overall, just ahead of rookie
Mark
  Madl (HON), who took an impressive fifth overall in his first-ever
pro race.
  Nick DeNoble (HON) ended the day with sixth place, ahead of
Derek Swartfager
  (HON) and Joel Hetrick went (14-4) to salvage an eighth
place finish for the
  day.


The 2012
AMA ATV
  Motocross Championship heads to Muddy Creek Raceway in
Blountville, Tenn., for
  round two of the ten-race circuit. For more

RJ Anderson and his Walker Evans, Holz Racing Products built RZR XP started 2012 with a bang winning the Soboba GP UTV race and also broke the record for the longest jump in a factory-powered side-by-side at 151 feet! The Soboba GP is a historic Southern California race event, held on the private Soboba Indian Reservation and known for its glorious dirt, the Soboba GP was famed for its once-a-year MX event. While the MX racing at the GP still draws pro's from around the world of factory MX racing, it is apparent that today the main draw is the side-by-side race. The race has one class, the racers are lined up in a single row based upon the order they registered in and it’s a land rush start once the green flag drops. From there, the race is a 2-hour long moto through the hills and MX-styled infield. The track totals just over six miles long and causes for some serious attrition. This is not a race that you try to win in the first lap. Patience is key, consistency is even more important, and knowing how to keep your vehicle alive is the trick! On this day Anderson followed his game plan to a "T.” While others took on the task of trying to race the first lap like it’s the last, Anderson chose to get the best start he could, settle into a good pace, and start to pick off the slower traffic one by one. Within an hour, Anderson would be the first SxS on course. Thirty-three side-by-sides would thunder into turn 1 and only 14 would make it to the checkered flag. Fortunately for Anderson and the Walker Evans Racing team, Anderson would cross that line first. The SxS Anderson raced was built specifically for the 2012 WORCS racing season and was easily the fastest SxS on the track that day winning the race with a stock RZR XP 900 power plant!  The team picked right up where they left off last season, taking home a huge win at the opening race of 2012!



 The Soboba GP was a great test and shake down for their new Holz Racing Products built RZR XP that Walker Evans Racing will race in the WORCS racing series for 2012.

 
 
__The ATV Promoters Group (ATVPG) announces today a change in the location of the opening round of the AMA ATV Motocross National Championship Series. Round one, originally scheduled for March 24-25 at Millcreek in Pell City, Ala., will now take place the same weekend at Aonia Pass Motocross in Washington, Ga.

"Aonia Pass proved last year that their facility is worthy of holding the opening round of ATVMX and it just makes sense to make the change to this location for 2012," said Sam Gammon, Director of the ATVPG. "

Aonia Pass MX will remain the host for round two of the Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series March 17 and 18, while the ATVMX will take place the following weekend, March 24 and 25.

"On behalf of the ATVPG, we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. However, we hope series sponsors will find this move as the most convenient choice. Please find the revised 2012 schedule below," Gammon added.

In partnership with the ATV Promoters Group (ATVPG), the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) is pleased to announce the schedule for the 2012 AMA ATV Motocross National Championship Series, presented by DWT. The 10-round series will kick off March 24-25 at Millcreek in Pell City, Ala., and wrap up Aug. 11-12 at the Loretta Lynn Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tenn.

"The 2011 AMA ATV Motocross National Championship Series, presented by DWT, once again offered up the most exciting ATV motocross racing on the planet," said AMA Director of Racing Joe Bromley. "We anticipate no less from the 2012 campaign, and are looking forward to another thrilling season."

The AMA ATV Motocross National Championship Series was launched in 1985. It annually draws the top racers, teams and sponsors in ATV competition, making it America's largest and longest-running ATV national motocross series. In addition to the AMA Pro Racing champions, the series also crowns AMA ATV amateur national motocross champions for riders of all backgrounds and skill levels in 38 classes.

"The ATVPG is excited to announce the ATVMX schedule dates for 2012," said Director of ATVPG Sam Gammon. "We feel that next year's schedule presents a new factor of excitement with the addition of the Ballance night race and also caters to the current ATVMX rider base."

In addition to national recognition, the series offers regional honors to riders who compete in all the rounds in their region. The North and South Challenges are designed to accommodate racers unable to contest the entire series but still commit to all the events in their region.

The AMA ATV Motocross Championship Series, presented by DWT, is one of several national championship series and grand championship events sanctioned by the AMA. Other AMA-sanctioned national championship series include the AMA Rekluse National Enduro Championship Series, presented by Moose Racing; the AMA Kenda National Hare & Hound National Championship Series; the Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series; the AMA/NATC MotoTrials National Championship Series; the Geico Powersports AMA Endurocross National Championship Series; the AMA Arenacross National Championship Series; the AMA ATV Hare Scrambles National Championship Series; and the AMA ATV Extreme Dirt Track National Championship Series.
