Dew ATV Motocross National Championship series, sanctioned by the AMA, in Kentucky, BCS Performance / Can-Am Pro Josh Creamer finished fourth in the Pro class on his DS 450.
“Can-Am Pro Travis Moore continued his roll in the Northeast aboard his Can-Am DS 450 ATV, by again winning all four Pro-level motos to earn himself another big double win weekend in the NEATV series,” said Jimmie O’Dell, Race Manager, Can-Am. “It was a challenging weekend on the AMA ATV MX National circuit as rain soaked the Ballance Moto X race facility, making for very sloppy racing conditions for the riders. Pro Josh Creamer narrowly missed the Pro class overall podium with fourth overall.”
NEATV-MX – Round 2
AK Farms MX in Modena, N.Y., hosted round two of the NEATV-MX series. BCS Performance / Wide Open Racing / Can-Am Pro Travis Moore put his DS 450 ATV on top of both the Pro and Pro-Am podiums by winning all four motos he entered at round two.
Although Moore didn’t grab a holeshot in either Pro class moto, he put his Can-Am within striking distance of the leaders early on and rode patiently until he found an opening for the lead and eventual win.
Canadian Mathieu Deroy (PLX Sport / Ultimate ATV) finished in the runner-up spot aboard his Can-Am DS 450 ATV in the Pro class. He tallied 3-2 moto finishes to earn second overall.
“My Can-Am ran great as usual and didn’t give us any issues throughout the entire day,” said Moore. “We went 1-1 in both classes and, honestly, there’s nothing better that we could of done. The track was really rough with the whoop sections and back uphill rhythm section and my FOX shocks worked great.”
Roy Lampron (40+), Jake Chamberland (College Boy) both went 1-1 on Can-Am ATVs to win their classes in New York. Can-Am amateur racers also earned four third-place finishes at round two. Round three of the series is May 11-12 at MX101 in Epping, N.H.

Mtn. Dew ATV MX – Round 3
Despite rain and muddy conditions, Pro Josh Creamer rode his BCS Performance / Can-Am DS 450 to a top-four finish at Ballance Moto X course in Oakland, Ky. Creamer tallied a podium finish in moto one. Moto two proved to be more difficult for the former champion.
After being pushed wide in the first turn and falling to sixth place early on, Creamer was comfortably in fourth place on lap four, and in contention for a podium spot. However, he later dropped to sixth place.
His 3-6 moto scores left him just one point out of third place for the day. Jeffrey Rastrelli (JB Racing / Cheerwine / Can-Am) finished 10th on his DS 450.
