GUST AND WIMMER TAKE FIRST AND THIRD OVERALL IN KENTUCKY GNC
Team Rockstar/MSR/Suzuki/Yoshimura/Pro Taper\'s veteran rider Doug Gust took the Bluegrass ATV National with a 2-2 win on Sunday. Teammate Dustin Wimmer won the first moto and ended the day in the third position.
Gust placed second at the previous race in Pell City Alabama, but today Gust turned the tables and finished up on top. Wimmer still enjoys a commanding points lead in the series championship, which has seen Suzuki QuadRacers dominate.
Rain and mud proved to be a challenge for all the racers in the second moto, adding another challenging element to the already difficult track at Ballance Moto X. "Doug has more experience in this kind of condition and it showed today," Team Manager Kory Ellis said. "We\'re all really proud to see him back up on top."
Chad Wienen looked like he was going to dominate the weekend by qualifying the fastest time in qualifying on Saturday. Uneven moto scores again due to the muddy conditions netted him11th place overall.
The team is still holding the top three spots in the points race with a commanding lead by Dustin Wimmer with 134 points; Gust with 113 and Wienen with 89.
The ITP Tires/Moose Racing AMA/ATVA Pro ATV Championship Series continues on April 26-27 in Danville, Va.
