WIMMER HOLDS ON TO AMA/ATV MX SERIES LEAD AFTER MT. MORRIS, PA. ROUND
May 27, 2008 – Dustin Wimmer, part of the Rockstar Makita Suzuki team, had an up and down day at the High Point round of the ITP Tires/Moose Racing AMA/ATVA National Motocross Championship Series this weekend. But at the end of the day he was able to maintain his huge points lead with a 5th overall.
The day started well for Wimmer (#191) with a holeshot in the first moto – his Suzuki QuadRacer R450 earning him the Suspension Systems Holeshot Award. From the first turn on, Wimmer had a five second lead which he did not give up until he crossed the checkers.
The second moto started with Wimmer and Josh Creamer tangling up at the start.
When Wimmer returned to the track the second time he rode flat out securing the fastest lap of the day – 2 minutes flat. Even with Wimmer’s 15th place finish in moto two, he was still 5th for the day overall.
Teammate Doug Gust (#55) had a consistent showing with 5-6 moto scores for 6th overall keeping Doug firmly in second place behind Wimmer in the points standings. #44 Chad Wienen finished 6th overall.
Wimmer is currently enjoying a 41 point lead over teammate Doug Gust; Rockstar Makita Suzuki still dominates the Manufacturer’s Cup.
