Valcourt, Quebec, July 18, 2011 - Motoworks / Can-Am DS 450 racer Josh Creamer won both the Pro and Pro-Am classes at round six of the New England ATV Motocross Series in Minot, Maine. BCS Performance / Can-Am DS 450 racer Cody Miller joined Creamer on both podiums, finishing third in both classes.
"Josh continues to amaze us on how talented of a rider he actually is. This season he's has adapted very quickly to the Can-Am DS 450 and continues to get faster each race," said Jimmie O'Dell, Race Manager, Can-Am. "This past weekend Josh was in championship form and rode hard on his way to winning all four motos."
Creamer had a challenging first moto after a battle with the current Pro-class points leader. After grabbing the holeshot in moto one, Creamer lost the lead only to regain it again as the leader made a mistake. Then in the second Pro moto, Creamer used the power from his Motoworks-prepped DS 450 to grab another holeshot and lead wire-to-wire for the victory. The two-moto sweep moved Creamer to within 14 points of the Pro class leader.
"I had a great weekend. I came out here to win and that's just what I did," said Creamer. "I had a good run this weekend and now I am looking forward to Southwick. That's a bit longer track and it's pretty sandy, so I'm going to be training a little harder for that round."
In Pro-Am class action, Miller grabbed the moto-one holeshot, but was quickly passed by Creamer and another rider. Miller held off another rider for a hard-fought third place. The second Pro-Am moto started with another Creamer holeshot and victory. Miller was in second for much of the race, but eventually dropped to third and ended the day with a 4-3 score in the Pro ranks for third overall.
