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.
Wienen charged into 2nd place in Moto
One, but he was not able to close the
gap on Joel Hetrick out front
“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
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,”
celebrated his win with huge gathering
of family & friends that made the
trip up north to Minnesota

“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.
