Chad Wienen & Josh Upperman place first
& second at RedBud
Wienen was 2-1 for the day, and also took the
Fastest Qualifier award. Although he was hampered
by a bad start in the first moto, he took the
lead early in the second, and held the front position
for the remainder of the race. "I'm really
excited about the overall win at Red Bud, Wienen
said. It's my favorite track on the circuit and
the track was in excellent condition this weekend.
There were tons of fans there to support me this
weekend. I'm looking forward to the final race
of 2012 coming up in two weeks to finish off this
championship run!" Upperman, who was 4-2,
ran solid races in both motos.
Both riders achieved their results with the help
of the Razr MX in the rear and the Razr Cross
in front. We just had the right setup and had
a great qualifying time. The first moto wasnt
bad, and it was on for the second, said Upperman.
I ripped the holeshot, and the bike just hooked
up so much in every corner. It slid perfect, and
as soon as I was throttling out, the tires just
hooked up. It was awesome.
With 421 points, Wienen is just 15 points away
from clinching the Pro title. Upperman is fourth
in the series points standings, while Thomas Brown
in fifth overall.
Maxxis sponsored rider Cody Gibson turned in
his customary outstanding performance during the
weekend. Gibson remains undefeated in Pro Am Production,
and took his seventh Pro Am Unlimited win of the
