La Crosse, WI (7/20/2017) - Root River Racing’s Pro ATV Motocross racers Josh Upperman and Dylan Tremellen continued their string of competitive runs during round eight of 2017 AMA ATV Motocross National Championship. The event was held at Unadilla MX in New Berlin, NY.

Upperman scored a pair of sixes during the two motos for an overall sixth-place finish. He enjoyed the progress he and his Root River team have made since the last round.

“We’re making a lot of progress with the bike,” said Upperman. “The setup we’ve had since Millville has been a huge confidence booster for me. I’ve been able to run up front with those guys. I keep pushing myself at home. There is still some time to get on the box.”

Outfitted with Baldwin power and Hoosier Tires, Upperman’s Honda was quick out of the gate. His Motowoz Shocks helped deal with Unadilla’s combination of high speed, hard pack and big jumps.

“The Hoosier tires came off the line and even on that hard packed track they hooked up awesomely,” said Upperman. “I had great starts in both motos and the Baldwin motor was definitely pulling strong. My Motowoz shocks were working great. I can’t be happier at how the bike is running and how the team is working.”

Rookie Tremellen went 11-10 in the motos for an overall 10th-place finish. Tremellen equaled his best finish of the season.

“I was hoping for ninth, but we had a good safe weekend and scored a top 10,” said Tremellen. “The track was fun. I like the pro section there. It has some fun jumps on it along with some high-speed sections. This is my fourth 10th place, so we we’re hoping to improve that. I’m hoping to gain some points and stay in the top ten in points.”

The 2017 AMA ATV Motocross National Championship next heads to Redbud MX in Buchanan, MI July 29-30. Both Upperman and Tremellen are looking forward to Redbud and will be ready for action.
