Motoworks / Can-Am DS 450 racer Josh Creamer won the second Pro-class moto and took the overall win in the Pro-Am class at round five of the New England ATV Motocross Series held at MX 207 in Lyman, Maine. BCS Performance / Can-Am racer Cody Miller earned a Pro-Am class podium as well.
“Josh proved he had the speed to win both classes at MX 207, but unfortunately, he was nursing a sore knee and came up a little short in the Pro class,” said Jimmie O’Dell, Race Manger, Can-Am. “Josh’s will to persevere and race despite his injury was impressive and he really took care of business by winning the second moto in both classes and earning himself the Pro-Am class overall win.”
In the first Pro moto, Creamer came out of the gate in fourth. He was unable to make up any ground on the leaders and finished fourth due to the narrow 207 MX track’s tight passing conditions. Creamer grabbed the holeshot in the second moto and held it all the way to the finish line. His 4-1 score was good for second place.
“I was going to just go out there to salvage points, but I got tired of eating dirt and just rode like I normally would in the final two motos and ended up taking a couple of moto wins,” said Creamer. “I really want to take the championship this season and I couldn’t just let the leader run away with the points lead, so I chose to race even with a sore knee.”
Miller, who went 3-4 in the Pro class, showed some determination coming from behind in both motos and finding a way to pass five racers on his way to fourth place in the second pro moto.
The Pro-Am class was better for Miller as he finished third in each moto, which earned him third place and the third position on the podium.
