ATV - GNC MX June 27 - June 28, 2015 | Millville, MN Results

Wienen Motorsports/SSI/Maxxis’ Chad Wienen put in his best performance so far this season, sweeping to victory in both motos at the seventh round of the 2015 AMA Pro ATV series at Spring Creek MX Park in Millville, Minn. on Saturday, June 27. So dominant was Wienen that he led every lap of both races, while also setting the fastest lap time in each contest. His first 1-1 win of the year puts him 21 points ahead of rival Joel Hetrick in the standings with three events left to go. Just missing out on the podium at the event was TBrown84/Maxxis/Yamaha’s Thomas Brown. Although the YFZ450R racer ran inside the top five for most of both motos, he wasn’t quite able to challenge for a podium position this time. Nevertheless Brown remains a strong third in the standings.

As tough as the fights have been with Hetrick and Brown this year, at Millville Wienen had things go exactly his way. In the first moto, the defending series champion jetted into the lead on the first of 11 laps, building up a useful gap of 2.3 seconds over Hetrick by the end of the first lap. So dialed in was Wienen, that instead of having to take defensive lines against his rival, this time the YFZ rider was able to continually expand his lead. Wienen’s advantage grew to 3.7 seconds after two laps, to over six seconds at the halfway point, and ultimately to 14.1 seconds at the flag. After a mediocre start, Brown advanced from seventh to fourth, where he stayed until the checkers.

A first-moto win does not an overall victory make, and so Wienen was equally focused going into the second moto of the afternoon. Although he took the lead over Hetrick again on lap one, this time his rival turned up the heat immediately, completing the first lap just 0.4 sec. behind the Yamaha rider. But the challenge would last only a lap, as Wienen had carved out 2.3 seconds over Hetrick by lap two, and then steadily expanded it from there on, ultimately finishing the second moto an amazing 15.3 seconds in front. Brown turned in another solid moto as well, starting fifth and once again finishing fourth. The next round is at famous Unadilla MX in New York on July 11.
