It's been six weeks since the last race but the 2014 Mtn. Dew ATV Motocross National Championship returns with every-other-weekend races for the rest of the season starting with Round 3 on Saturday at High Point Raceway in Mt. Morris, PA.
MotoSport rider John Natalie returns to his home state just six points behind Chad Wienen for first place. Natalie and Wienen are the only riders to win a moto this year and Natalie also has three of four Holeshot Awards.
Natalie said his team has made a number of tweaks to his ATV during the break including changes to the tires and suspension which has made the bike easier to ride.
"On my home track, we knocked off about two and half seconds of lap time, I'm pretty excited about that," he said.
It's been two years since the ATV MX series raced at High Point and Natalie won the first Moto and took second in Moto 2 for the overall win in 2012. Natalie said he's always ready to go but being at a home track in front of family and friends, a win makes it that much special. If Natalie takes both Motos he can, at the least, tie Wienen in the Championship standings.
"It's a pretty nice track for me. It's got good up-hills and jumps and rough areas," Natalie said of the course. "There's nothing I am really concerned about except for being smooth."
Moto 1 starts at 3 p.m. (EST) and Moto 2 starts at 5 p.m. Saturday at High Point Raceway, 281 Taylortown Road in Mount Morris, PA. See the full schedule for more information and find directions here.
