Maxxis’ Wienen Takes Fourth ATV MX Win of 2012

Chad Wienen increased his points lead with his fourth win of the year in the ATV Motocross National Championship series. Round 7 was held June 30- July 1 in Millfield, Ohio.

Wienen went 2-1 for first overall on the weekend, holeshotting to the early lead in both motos. “The tires hooked up awesome out of the gate,” said Wienen of his Razr MX rear and Razr Cross front tires. “The track was really hard, and they put some water down that just got really slick for a while. I had a good setup with the yellow Razr MX. I had a little bobble in the first moto and [another rider] got by, but I pressured him. Into the second moto, I ripped another good start after some suspension changes and went on to run away with it.”

Josh Upperman took the third-place spot on the podium for Maxxis by going 4-3 for the weekend. Thomas Brown, who was 5-4, took fifth place overall, and Mark Madl was 6-6 and sixth overall. Upperman and Brown are fourth and fifth in the series’ points standings, while Madl is seventh.

Maxxis congratulates Chad Wienen on his latest victory and thanks all of its riders for their fine performances.
