Wienen 2nd at ATV MX Round 56/04/2012
Still holding a strong lead in the series’ points standings, Chad Wienen took second place at Round 5 of the ATV Motocross National Championship series, held June 3 in Oakland, Kentucky.
Wienen was within two seconds of the lead throughout the first moto, and took a top-three spot in the second moto with a strong push toward the end. “The track was pretty one-lined. There were a lot of weird singles and rollers that I felt like I had a good setup through. And a lot of corners were restricted with ruts, but the tires were hooking up,” he said. “I had a lot of traction and got great starts all weekend.”
Wienen has earned 235 points and has a 15-point cushion over the next rider in the standings. Two other Maxxis riders took spots in the overall top five at the race. Josh Upperman was 3-4 for fourth overall, and Thomas Brown was 5-5 for fifth place. Upperman and Thomas are also fourth and fifth in the points standings.
Maxxis congratulates all of these riders on their strong performances and wishes them the best in their upcoming races.
