Natalie Looks to Repeat at Ballance

Round three of the 2013 Mtn. Dew ATV MX National Championship heads to the Ballance Moto X racetrack in Oakland, KY this weekend. MotoSport?s John Natalie took center podium last year here for his first overall win of the 2012 season ? a doable feat on the table this year. Natalie is seventh in the overall standings with 56 points just one behind sixth-place Joe Byrd. A win at Ballance puts Natalie right back into the thick of what?s turning out to be a highly competitive series.

Joel Hetrick swept the second round at Muddy Creek giving him three wins out of four motos on the season. He sits in second place just a point behind leader and defending champion Chad Weinen. The top five are all within 16 points of one another.

The Mtn. Dew ATV Motocross National Championship is a 10-round series and is America?s largest and longest running, since 1985, ATV national motocross program. Visit www.atvmotoscross.com for more information. Racers get a week off before returning to the track May 11-12 at Wildcat Creek MX in Rossville, IN.
