Blountville, TN (4/25/2016) – The 2016 ProX ATV Motocross National Championship (ATVMX) presented by CST Tires, an AMA National Championship, continued today, April 23, at the iconic Muddy Creek Raceway in Blountville, Tennessee. With the presence of overcast skies the track shaped up nicely after rain showers the day before. Maxxis/Elka Suspension/Liquid Wrench's Joel Hetrick was able to quickly adjust to the changing track conditions to take home his first win of the season.

As the gate dropped for the first moto it would be Maxxis/Liquid Wrench/Elka Suspension/Honda-backed David Haagsma who jumped out to the early lead ultimately claiming his first SSI Decals Holeshot Award of the season. However, it would not take long for his teammate, Hetrick, to make the pass for the lead and earn valuable seconds on the rest of the class.

Meanwhile, Wienen Motorsports/Yamaha/Maxxis/SSi Decals/Walsh Racecraft/FLY Racing's Chad Wienen was busy working his way up from a sixth place start. Wienen was able to make quick work on majority of the racers but was set to battle for the second place position with Maxxis/Root River Racing/JB Racing's Thomas Brown.

The top three racers consisting of Hetrick, Brown and Wienen were able to pull away from the rest of the pro class by the midway point of the moto. While Hetrick was running his own race, the Texas Native Brown and defending champion Wienen were wheel-to-wheel resulting in some of the best racing thus far in the season.

Hetrick encountered a spinout in a turn just after seeing the white flag, allowing Brown and Wienen to catch back up to him creating a three-way-race for the win. However, the positions would stay the same as they crossed the finish line with Hetrick taking gold in the first moto followed by Brown and Wienen.
