ATV - GNC MX May 16 - May 17, 2015 | Mount Morris, PA Results

Wienen Motorsports/SSI/Maxxis’s Chad Wienen put together 2-2 moto results and TBrown84/Maxxis/Yamaha’s Thomas Brown went 3-3 to finish on the overall podium aboard their YFZ450Rs at the fourth round of the 2015 AMA Pro ATV season at High Point Raceway in Pennsylvania on Saturday, May 16. With two overall wins and consistent podiums for the year, Wienen now stands a close second in points behind rival and event winner Joel Hetrick as the 10-round series approaches the halfway point. Brown’s third overall podium of the year solidifies his third-place position in the standings.

With Hetrick narrowly winning the last round over points leader and defending series champion Wienen, race day promised to be heavily contested between the two title rivals. Hetrick fired the first shot by taking the top qualifying spot, and then followed that up by grabbing the holeshot in the first moto. But Wienen also got a good start, and ripped his YFZ past Hetrick into the lead on the first of 11 race laps. He held the advantage for three laps before making a mistake that allowed Hetrick to pass. At the checkers the final order was Hetrick ahead of Wienen and Brown, giving Yamaha two of the three podium positions.

More determined than ever, Wienen launched out of the gate to the holeshot in the second moto, this time leading the first four laps of the race. And while Hetrick snuck by on lap five, Wienen was able to stay close to his rival, looking for any weakness and an opportunity to reclaim the lead. But in a duplicate result to the first moto, the final order was Hetrick, Wienen and Brown 1-2-3. Now a slim two points behind Hetrick and more eager than ever, Wienen will be fully charged and ready to take back the red plate at Ironman Raceway in Indiana on May 30.
