Team ITP ATV motocross racers earned nine class wins and 17 total podium finishes at round two of the 2013 Mtn. Dew ATV Motocross National Championship series held in Tennessee.
Pro racer Josh Ceamer, using the new ITP Quadcross MX2 front tires, notched another top-five finish in the Pro class on Saturday, while William “Duck” Lloyd earned third place in the Pro-Am class on Sunday.
“Team ITP racer support riders and our contingency racers had a great weekend in Tennessee. With a total of nine class victories and 17 podiums, I was very pleased with how well our amateur racers performed on a challenging Muddy Creek track,” said Pat McGuire, Public Relations / Race Support. “We had William Lloyd earn third in Pro-Am class against a full gate of racers and ITP Pro class racer Josh Creamer finish fourth overall.”
Round two of the 2013 Mtn. Dew ATV Motocross National Championship series, sanctioned by the AMA, was held in near perfect conditions at Muddy Creek in Blountville, Tenn. Despite a rough course, Team ITP racers excelled by winning nine classes and earning eight other podium finishes.
In the ATV Pro class Saturday, Josh Creamer and fellow ITP-backed pro Jeffrey Rastrelli both finished in the top 10 at round two. Creamer posted a sixth-place finish in moto one after a slow start. He passed seven riders to earn sixth. The former ATV Pro class champion improved in moto two, earning third place. His moto 6-3 combined moto score was good enough for fourth overall.
Creamer is currently fourth in Pro class points, just 11 points behind the leader. Rastrelli ended up eighth overall and is also eighth in the Pro class point standings.
“I didn’t get the start I was looking for at all in moto one, but I had to ride really smart to work my way through the field and make passes as there were limited places to pass out on the track,” said Creamer.
Lloyd earned two podiums in Tennessee, taking third in the Pro-Am class and sweeping both Junior 25 Plus class motos to earn the overall. Fellow Pro-Am class racer Brent Sellers, who earned a third in Production A, was fifth in the Pro-Am class using ITP tires. The Production A class win went to ITP-backed Dalton Hicks, who also finished second in the 450 A class for his second podium of the weekend.
In Schoolboy class action Haedyn Mickelson won both the Senior (14-17) and Junior (13-15) Open classes and Blake Sarver won the Junior (13-15) class. Chloe Buerster won her the Women’s class and took over the points lead. In the Girls 12-15 ranks, the win went to ITP racer Maddison Guyer. ITP youth racers to post class victories were Sam Steckly in the 90 Open (12-15) class and Brogan Guyer in the 90 CVT (8-15) class.
Other ITP-supported racers to earn class podiums were Jordan Digby (second, 125 12-15), Alex Gillette (second in both 450C and Production C), Benjamin Brocato (third, Production B; third, 4-Stroke B).
