ATVMX Season Opener

Wienen goes 1-1 at Aonia Pass MX Park

The season opener for the ATVMX National Championship was held this past weekend in Washington, Georgia.  Races kicked off on Saturday at Aonia Pass Motocross Park.  Starting off the season well Chad Wienen took two first place finishes in both of his pro motos.  In the first moto, it was Josh Upperman on the Baldwin Honda that got the holeshot and led for the early part of the race.  It didn't take long for Wienen to pass Upperman on his new Yamaha ride.  Joel Hetrick was looking for a good finish in moto 1 but unfortunately went off the track after making an attempt to pass Wienen for the 1st place position.  In moto two, Upperman took another holeshot but was passed early on by Jon Natalie and Chad Wienen.  Natalie and Wienen battled it out until the last corner when Wienen came out on top and took the moto win.  The results for the opening weekend were as followed; Wienen in first, Natalie second, and Upperman taking the number three spot.
