COLUMBUS – The 2012 AMA ATV Motocross National Championship Series headed north to Unadilla Valley Sports Center Saturday for round eight of the 10-race series. Chad Wienen extended his points lead over defending champ John Natalie, despite heavy pressure from 2010 ATVMX champ Josh Creamer.
Wienen began the morning on fire by grabbing the ATVRiders.com Fastest Qualifier Award with a 1:52.8 time. When the gate dropped for moto one, it was BCS Performance/Can-Am's Josh Creamer with the SSiDecals Holeshot Award as he put himself into the front of the pack right away. Wienen put his Wienen Motorsports/SSi Decals/Walsh Race Craft/Yamaha right behind Creamer and the duo put on an exciting race for the lead.
