– Yoshimura saw two riders take to the podium this weekend at the Ballance MotoX Park in Bowling Green, Kentucky, for the AMA ATV MX series. New team rider Josh Creamer took first place, while his teammate and defending ATV MX Champion Dustin Wimmer took second.
Creamer finished with a 2-1 finish in both motos, good enough for the top spot on the podium. Wimmer finished the day with 6-3 motos, and found himself on the second step of the podium Sunday afternoon.
“It feels great to get my first overall win for Rockstar Makita Suzuki today,” Creamer said. “My Suzuki QuadRacer R450 was flawless as usual, the team worked hard, and I brought it home. It feels good!” Josh scored the holeshot in his second moto, and never looked back. Creamer has been a force in the AMA ATV MX series, but now with his Yoshimura-prepped QuadRacer R450 he’s going to be even tougher on his competitors. “These Yoshimura motors are so fast they really have no weaknesses,” Creamer said. “With the fuel injection management, they run crisp from top to bottom.”

Dustin Wimmer rode smooth all day and managed to hold onto his first place overall status, leading the series with 88 points. Creamer sits with 84, making it a close race heading into round three of the 2010 AMA ATV Motocross Championship in Danville, Virginia, on May 2.
“I don’t know what it is about this track,” the 2008 and 2009 champion Wimmer said after the race. “I always seem to struggle here, although today I rode pretty well. With all things considered, I came out with pretty good results. I focused on points and I had fun today.”
New to Yoshimura support, Thomas Brown had a strong day and finishing fifth. He battled in both motos and proved he will be finding his way to the top of the podium soon. With his hard-charging style and strong stats, Brown kept moving forward all day.

Another Yoshimura rider, Pat Brown suffered some mechanical issues but he still had two strong motos, placing him 12th overall. Although it may not be how he wanted to finish, he’s expected to bounce back with some strong finishes throughout the season.
Also under the Yoshimura banner, Cody Grant managed to survive his first big pro race after being involved in a pile-up on one of the starts, while Harold Goodman fought hard for 13th. Both are expected to move up the ranks through the season.
