Scores Three Wins at Daytona ATV SX
McKenzie, TN (3/20/2018) – Nine6Nine
Motorsports riders Logan Stanfield, Alan Myers,
and Cole Wuellenweber all scored victories at
the season opener for the AMA ATV Motocross National
Championship. The team was competing in the Daytona
ATV SX at Daytona International Speedway in Florida.
A new course and a new format that paid points
in the amateur classes welcomed the team to Daytona
for the race held during Bike Week. The course
featured several big air jumps, a whooped out
rhythm section, as well as a tight corkscrew hairpin
start turn that challenged everyone. The event
featured a unique single-moto format.
Team owner Travis Moore pushed his riders all
weekend. Though he was happy with the results,
he knows that in racing you’re only as good as
your next finish, so he remains ready to put in
the hard work that wins championships.
“We can’t complain coming out with three overall
wins,” said Moore. “My riders aren’t allowed to
use the word ‘can’t’ or it means 500 pushups.
So I try to communicate with them every lap to
keep them motivated. We were successful, we’re
healthy and we’re ready to come into round two.
I’m happy, but I’m never satisfied. We’ll keep
going for the top and we’ll step it up every week.”
Myers won the Pro Sport race and finished fourth
in Pro-Am. Myers has been with Moore for four
years and has been on the team since its inception
in 2015. He was happy to get his first win in
the Daytona event since the first edition of the
race in 2015.
“I had my holeshots pretty dialed in and the
Maxxis Tires really hooked up,” said Myers. “I
just rode my own races in both the heat and the
main. I liked the track a lot. It got really rough
at the end, but it was a lot of fun. That was
a pretty neat win for me because I haven’t won
in Daytona since the first year. I was pretty
pumped about that.”
Stanfield recovered from a crash in the 450A
heat to win the main. Stanfield, who is in his
third year with the team, broke his back last
year in a hard crash. He proved his injury was
fully healed with an impressive run in the main.
After starting fourth, he took second in the rhythm
section on the first lap and took the lead for
good soon after.
“The leader blew his engine and I kept my pace
going to the finish,” said Stanfield. “It was
amazing. That whole last lap I had a smile on
my face. The whole Walsh setup is awesome with
the Maxxis Tires, Barker’s Exhaust and Goldspeed
Wheels. It’s pretty cool that we all got wins
this weekend. In the offseason we push each other
pretty hard. It’s always a battle between us,
which is really nice.”
Wuellenweber won the Open C main to clinch his
first National victory in his first year with
the team and riding a Suzuki for the first time
in his career. In the Open C event, he took the
holeshot and led every lap. He also finished fifth
in College 16-24.
“I was so stoked to get that win in Open C,”
said Wuellenweber. “Travis helped me prep my gate
and the Maxxis Tires really hooked up at the start.
I went flying into that first turn and pulled
away at the start. From there, I just ran my own
race. It was awesome to finally win a national
