La Crosse, WI (6/8/2017) - Root
River Racing’s Pro ATV Motocross racers Josh Upperman
and Dylan Tremellen competed in the fifth round
of the 2017 AMA ATV Motocross National Championship.
Racing was held at Muddy Creek Raceway in Blountville,
TN. Upperman pulled off a top ten finish and rookie
rider Tremellen came in twelfth overall.
Upperman’s 7-8 moto finishes were enough to grant
him eighth overall. Despite what most consider
a great finish in the incredibly competitive Pro
class, Upperman expects more for himself. “Its
not acceptable to me. After a good heat race win
at Daytona I was pumped up and ready to do battle.
I am just not happy where I have been finishing,”
Racing's Josh Upperman
Upperman maintains a positive attitude and is
looking forward to the sixth round of the season
to redeem himself. “I am ready for Sunset Ridge.
I like that track a lot and I do very well there.
I am excited to go there and get my confidence
back and get on the box, that is my plan,” stated
Root River Racing’s rookie Pro class rider Dylan
Tremellen fell just short of the top ten with
an impressive twelfth place overall finish. “I
want to get top ten as much as possible, but I
still can’t complain with twelfth. I had two solid
motos and am just working on getting the speed
and bike where it needs to be,” explained Tremellen.

Tremellen is making progress each round with
the bike, the team, and himself. He looks to use
this first Pro season as a growing year to help
him come out stronger than ever next season. “This
is just a learning year for me. We are going to
do the best we can and come back next year and
hopefully be in the top ten consistently,” said
Similar to Upperman, Tremellen is looking forward
to the next round and enjoys the Sunset Ridge
track. “It is one of my favorite tracks to ride.
I am super excited to get there and hopefully
get some better finishes and better starts,” stated
Tremellen. With the Root River Racing rider’s
shared love for the next track, we can anticipate
some great racing and finishes to come.
The sixth round of the 2017 AMA ATV Motocross
National Championship at Sunset Ridge MX will
be held in Walnut, IL on June 17-18.
