Wienen wins third consecutive overall at Sunset
WALNUT - Rain or shine the 2013 Mtn. Dew ATV Motocross, sanctioned by AMA, put on quite a show for the fans at Round 5 of the 10-race series, which took place Sunset Ridge MX in Walnut. Chad Wienen took his third consecutive overall win in front of his homestate crowd, but the 2012 champion had to work for the win as the racing was tight all afternoon.
Wienen grabbed the ATVRiders.com Fastest Qualifier of the morning aboard his Wienen Motorsports SSi Walsh Yamaha presented by Maxxis Tires & Team Vollmer machine, lining himself up for the first gate pick of the day.
"I always look forward to the Sunset Ridge MX race, I have a ton of family and friends that come down to support me and it makes the weekend that much better! I knew getting a good gate pick for Moto 1 was important because we couldn't tell what the weather was going to do, but I'm pumped on another overall and extending my points lead!" said Wienen.
Baldwin Motorsports PEP Upperman Racing rider Josh Upperman snagged the SSi Decals Moto 1 Holeshot Award. Upperman lead the field out of the first turn but it wasn't long before the 2011 Champion John Natalie made the pass into the leading position. Natalie's MotoSport.com Motoworks DWT machine came out of the first turn in second and was on a mission to grab the front spot.
