Josh Creamer Wins NEATV-MX Round 4 Hurricane
“I can’t say enough about the consistency
and overall effort put in by DS 450 Pro Josh Creamer.
It’s not easy to win eight Pro-level motos,
but he made it look simple and is determined to
win both the Pro and Pro-Am NEATV-MX titles,”
stated Jimmie O’Dell, Race Manager, Can-Am.
“In the AMA series, John Natalie put in
a great charge to finish second overall in Illinois.
Having both John and Joel Hetrick put their DS
450 ATVs on the Pro class podium is always good.
We’re still very much in the race for the
AMA championship and will continue to push for
overall wins at the remaining five rounds.”

at NEATV-MX Round 4
Josh Creamer is determined to win the NEATV-MX
ATV Pro Championship on his Can-Am DS 450 in 2012.

Lyman, Maine’s MX 207 hosted round three

At round four at Hurricane Hills in Clifford,
Pa., Creamer was even more dominant aboard his
BCS Performance-backed Can-Am DS 450. He posted
two wire-to-wire victories in the Pro class motos
and also earned two resounding wins in the Pro-Am
class in Pennsylvania.
“I am going to be racing at the AMA MX
Nationals in about a month, so I really needed
to push it here and get in shape so I can be on
the podium,” said Creamer.

AMA ATV MX Round 4
A recently redesigned Sunset Ridge MX Park in Illinois,
hosted round four of the AMA ATV MX series. Motoworks
/ Can-Am DS 450 pros John Natalie and Joel Hetrick
finished second and third overall. In moto one,
Natalie was bumped early at the start and had to
battle back from the 10th position. He charged his
way through the pack and up into third place before
the first moto ended. Hetrick, who grabbed the ATVRiders.com
Fastest Qualifier award, finished second in the
first moto thanks to a top-five start and consistent
In the second Pro class moto, Natalie had the
lead after just one lap of racing. He later dropped
to third after a slight bobble in a turn and gave
away the lead. Natalie moved back into second
place and was soon on the rear bumper of the leader,
searching for a passing line at the end of the

Natalie ended up in second and his 3-2 score
was good for second overall, which maintained
his second spot in the Pro Class point standings.
Hetrick started the second moto in eighth place,
but battled his way into fourth by the midway
point of the race and held it the rest of the
way to the finish line. His 2-4 score was good
for third overall and kept him in third place
in the Pro class rankings.
“It was a really close race, and I gave
it my all, but I just couldn’t get around
the leader at the finish. The track was good and
rough and I really couldn’t have asked for
any better,” said Natalie.

classes (Open A, Junior 25+, Veteran 30+) aboard
his BCS Performance-backed DS 450 ATV.
