The weather was spectacular and the track looked even better, making for a perfect day of Pro ATV motocross racing. Spring Creek is known for its big air jumps and rough, sandy whoop section, which has always worked in Wienen’s favor. Wienen has never lost a race at Spring Creek as long as it has been on the schedule.

“The first moto I hooked up a little hard off the start and popped a little wheelie. I had to battle with the riders in front me. I worked my way through and had to settle for second,” stated Wienen.

Things went better in moto two, where Wienen ripped the holeshot and never looked back, taking the moto and overall win. “We got the holeshot and were clicking off great lines all moto. We were killing that roller section in the back, that is my favorite part of the track here. It is so technical and tough. Joel Hetrick rode a great race, he was pushing me along in the beginning but I dug deep today,” explained Wienen.

With many years of experience, Wienen knows how to ride smart and consistent, which is key to his current 22 point lead for the championship. “We have to be consistent and pick our battles. We know when to go and when to tone it down,” said Wienen.

“Second moto was pretty rough. I just battled with the roller section. I did what I could and played it safe today. Wienen rode awesome. He was putting a hurting on me during the roller section. I tried to pick it up on the other side but I just could not do it today,” said Hetrick.
