Wienen Wins ATV MX Opener; Maxxis Takes 4 of Top 5

Chad Wienen took the Pro victory at the ATV MX series kick-off, while Maxxis’ sponsored riders took four of the top five spots. The first round of the 2012 season was held March 24-25 in Washington, Georgia.

Wienen won both motos to take the overall victory, while third place finisher Josh Upperman took the holeshot in each race. Both riders trusted Maxxis Razr MX models to best the competition: Wienen ran the yellow label Razr MX, and Upperman rode the orange label Razr MX. “We put the best products in the industry on our machine,” Wienen commented after the race. “It all starts with a solid foundation, and that is where Maxxis comes in. The tires helped me get great starts and the best traction on the track to help me win.” Also riding Maxxis were Thomas Brown and Mark Madl, who took fourth and fifth places in the Pro class.

Maxxis’ Pro Am Production class racer Cody Gibson had a great weekend as well, winning both motos in that class and Pro Am Unlimited.

Maxxis congratulates Chad Wienen and Cody Gibson on their victories and thanks all of its riders for their fine performances.
