Heading to Unadilla ATV MX AMA
ATV MX Championship - Round 8 - Unadilla MX
- July 13-15, 2012
Morgantown, WV (7/11/2012) - The
2012 ATV Motocross National Championship Series
makes its way to Unadilla Valley Sports Center in
New Berlin, New York for Round 8 of the 10-round
series. This track, more commonly known as Unadilla,
has been the host of 40 plus years of exciting racing-from
two and four-wheeled motocross to cross-country
racing-and this weekend will prove to be no different
as the fastest ATV motocross racers from all over
the country find common ground in the northeast.
WienenMotorsports / SSi Decals / Walsh Race Craft
/ Yamaha's Chad Wienen continues to hold the red
plate as he carries the points lead with a solid
327-point total, and four wins for the season. Wienen
has put himself into a favorable position going
into this race, but defending champ John Natalie
remains a major threat in the championship chase.
Natalie has been picking up momentum as the season
continues, charting two overall victories aboard
his Motoworks/Can-Am backed ride.
Baldwin Motorsports / PEP / Maxxisrider Josh Upperman
continues to have a consistent season as he sits
fourth in the overall point standings. Upperman
finished third overall last round in his home state
of Ohio and looks to continue the streak this weekend
in New York.
Motoworks / Can-Am's Joel Hetrick has had his fare
share of set backs this season but the young gun
is heading to Unadilla with a spurt of confidence
after finishing secondin the last round. The young
star has shown that he's got the speed to run with
the most experienced pros on the circuit.
The pro riders will run Saturday as part of a full
schedule of amateur racing, including classes for
Youth, Women and Veteran riders. Amateurs will practice
on Friday and race on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets
on Saturday are $20 for spectators ($10 for ages
6-11), and admission includes full pro-pit access
and an autograph session.For more information on
