Upperman’s Root River Racing bike shot out of the gate like a rocket both motos, allowing him to take great starts and 6-7 moto finishes. “The starts were really good. We were there both times in the top three to five. The Baldwin motor definitely got me up front and that’s what we were looking for,” stated Upperman.

The Hoosier tires under the Root River Racing machine were also a huge help in Upperman’s impressive performance. “The Hoosier tires worked awesome this weekend. With the little bit of mud and the track being dry slick in spots I had tons of traction to keep me up front,” explained Upperman.

Dylan Tremellen also put in a tremendous ride to keep himself inside the top ten. Tremellen went 12-12 for tenth overall and will continue to build throughout his rookie season. “I am very happy with it. We will get there, this is a learning year for me,” said Tremellen.

The Root River Racing team had Tremellen’s bike in top shape to handle the challenging track conditions. “The bike worked great. We started making some shock adjustments here and there and it was working really well,” stated Tremellen.

The Root River Racing Pro riders will continue to train and come back swinging at the fifth round of the 2017 AMA ATV Motocross National Championship. Racing will be held at Muddy Creek Raceway in Blountville, TN on June 3-4.
