Can-Am DS 450 ATV Racer Josh Creamer Wins NEATV-MX Pro Class Championship
Québec, Sept. 5, 2012 — BCS Performance /
Can-Am® DS 450™ racer Josh Creamer clinched the 2012 New England ATV Motocross
(NEATV-MX) Pro Class Championship by winning both Pro class motos at round nine
in Clifford, Pa. Several other Can-Am racers, including Cody Miller, Hunter
Miller and Joel Hetrick reached the podium in different racing events in the US.
Across the Atlantic Ocean, Americans Josh Frederick and Dillon Zimmerman teamed
with Frenchman Jeremie Warnia to finish fourth in the 26th Annual 12
Hours of Pont de Vaux in France.
“Josh Creamer put an
exclamation point on his 2012 NEATV-MX season, winning both Pro-level classes
at round 9 and securing the 2012 Pro class title with three rounds remaining.
His approach and determination this year have been exceptional and he has
rewarded himself, his sponsors and BRP with a well-deserved championship,” said Jimmie O’Dell, Race Manager, Can-Am. “I was extremely proud
of the way the Motoworks / Can-Am team never quit and battled through adversity
in France to earn fourth at Pont de Vaux.”
Round nine of the 12-round NEAVT-MX series
was held at Hurricane Hills in Clifford, Pa. Creamer once again came away with
four moto wins, earning 1-1 sweeps in both the Pro and Pro-Am classes. More
importantly, his consistency in the series not only preserved his perfect
record in the Pro class, but also locked up the 2012 NEATV-MX Pro championship title.
Creamer grabbed the holeshot in each Pro class moto and walked away from the
rest of the field to secure the championship with three rounds remaining this
year. Can-Am racer Brad Burbine also reached the Pro class podium, finishing
had a much tougher first moto in the Pro-Am class, as he got off the line late
and had to come from the back of the pack. However, the gritty pro finally made
his way to the front on the final lap and took the win. He followed it up with
a moto-two holeshot and dominant victory for the Pro-Am overall. Michael
Troiano earned third in the Pro-Am class aboard his Can-Am DS 450.
“I had a
great weekend. Both Pro motos went great for me. I grabbed both holeshots and
pulled away. I have to thank Can-Am, BCS and everyone who has helped me to win
this championship. I am very happy and I plan to keep winning for them,” said Creamer.
Can-Am X-Team members Cody and Hunter Miller put
their Louis Powersports-supported Can-Am DS 450 ATVs on both the Expert and
Pro-Am podiums at round nine of the Texhoma Quad Racing Association series held
in Decatur, Texas. Cody Miller finished second in both classes, while his older
brother Hunter earned third place in each class during TeXGames weekend at Oak
In France, the team of
Frederick, Zimmerman and Warnia, the 2011 WORCS ATV pro champion, competed in the
12 Hours of Pont de Vaux aboard a Motoworks / Can-Am DS 450. The team raced out
to the overall lead and carried that lead into the night session. However,
during Frederick’s turn on the ATV, the headlights stopped working and he
crashed. During the 30-minute delay to repair the vehicle, the team dropped
from first to 59th place. Once the ATV was repaired, the racers rallied
and soon climbed back into the top 10. Finally, at the completion of the 12
hours, the Motoworks / Can-Am team had worked its way up to an impressive
Bartosek Celebration Race
Motoworks / Can-Am racer Joel Hetrick traveled
to Sugar Grove, Pa., to compete at the 10th annual motocross race that celebrates
the life of fallen ATV racer Matt Bartosek. Hetrick, who finished third overall
in the 2012 AMA ATV MX Championship series, notched 2-2 moto scores on his
Can-Am DS 450 to finish second overall.
