La Crosse, WI (4/14/2017) - Root
River Racing’s Pro riders competed in the second
round of the 2017 AMA ATV Motocross National Championship
April 1. Racing was held at Underground MX Park
in Kemp, TX where Josh Upperman claimed seventh
overall and Dylan Tremellen scored his first top
ten finish of his Pro career with tenth overall.
Upperman reported feeling off his game, but gave
it his all nonetheless. “I really like the track,
but I wasn’t feeling it that day. No matter how
hard I kept pushing it I couldn’t make ground
up,” said Upperman, who scored 6-7 moto finishes
for seventh overall.

Upperman remains positive and confident, looking
forward to the upcoming round at Alabama. “The
track was fun. It is always a good place, they
are a top notch facility. It is a wide track with
lots of room for passing. All in all, it was awesome.
I just had an off day, but that is in the past
now and I am looking forward to better racing,”
Root River Racing’s Dylan Tremellen turned heads
with his career best Pro finish in tenth place.
“The first moto I got a good start and got hit
off the track. I fell back a little bit and finished
tenth,” said Tremellen.

In moto two, Tremellen rocketed off the start
with a second place position in the holeshot.
“I was right behind Joel Hetrick and right next
to Chad Wienen, but I got hit from behind and
fell back a little bit. By the end of the moto
I got down to twelfth, but tenth overall.
Tremellen is excited to get to the next round
in Alabama where the soil favors his style. “It
is going to be a fun track. It doesn’t get quite
as rough and that is what we have been riding
in at Texas the last couple of weeks, so that
should work to my advantage,” explained Tremellen.
The Root River Racing Pro riders will return
to AMA ATV Motocross National Championship racing
at the third round. Racing will be held April
15-16 at Monster Mountain MX Park in Tallassee,
AL where they will be charging for podium.
