the second year in a row.
Wienen started the day by grabbing the ATVRiders.com
Fastest Qualifier award. "The day started
off a little wet from the rains we received
on Monday. We didn't participate in the first
time qualifying session and the second one
had much better conditions to go grab the
top qualifying spot later on in the session
on my Wienen Motorsports Yamaha."

"In the first heat I didn't nail the
start and came out of the top five and ended
up third. In the main I made some adjustments
and was able to come out in forth made some
quick passes for third and then into second.
I was dialing in some of my lines and applying
pressure to the leader. About half way I was
able to take over the lead with the leader
made a mistake. I was able to ride on to the
victory on a rutted, rough track that you
had to be on your toes all day long. I was
able to ride 18 Laps mistake free and that
made the difference at the end of the day.
Thank you to my team and supporters who back
