Galena, IL (4/4/2017) - This
past weekend the ATVMX Pro National Circuit
headed to Underground MX in Kemp, Texas for
the season's second round of racing where
Wienen Motorsports' Chad Wienen grabbed the
overall win of the weekend.
Qualifying was tight all morning with the
top pros within less than a second of each
other proving it would be a good day of racing.
As the gate dropped for moto 1, Wienen got
a good start off the line and was able to
secure the first SSi Decals Holeshot award
of the day
Wienen took charge in the lead position and
began to sprint to create a comfortable lead
on the rest of the field and he took the first
checkers of the day.
As the gate dropped in moto 2, Wienen once
again got off to a great start coming out
of the first turn in second. Within a few
turns, Wienen moved into the first place position.
Despite several lead changes throughout the
moto, Wienen was able to check in at the end
of the laps in the first place spot. With
two laps to go, Wienen fell back into the
second place position after a pass was made
that resulted in Wienen rolling a jump and
loosing time. Wienen went on to finish second
in moto 2 but took the overall win on the
day and began extending his points lead.
"I am feeling great after another amazing
weekend of racing. My Wienen Motorsports Yamaha
and I were in sync this weekend. This had
to be one of the best races of the year! Grabbing
the moto 1 holeshot and taking the win and
moto 2 passing for the lead after a few turns.
Wasn't able to secure it the whole race but
my machine and training feel great and I am
pumped to get the win in Texas and focus on
our next round in Alabama in less than 2 weeks.
I will continue to grind and work on my weak
points to keep extending this points lead.
" said Wienen
The series will resume April 15,2017 at Tallassee,
