Buffalo, NY: Dunlop congratulates the Team Dunlop members and other Dunlop-sponsored riders who turned in championship-winning performances at the 30th running of the prestigious AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship taking place August 1-8, at Loretta Lynn Ranch in Hurricane Mills, TN. Team Dunlop’s Stilez Robertson, Garrett Marchbanks, Sean Cantrell, Chase Sexton and Austin Forkner each won championships, while Adam Cianciarulo garnered two titles. Combining the seven Team Dunlop wins with the 26 championship victories earned by Dunlop-equipped racers, Dunlop won 33 championships over the seven days of competition.
Putting in commanding performances aboard his Geomax-fitted Kawasakis, Cianciarulo won four of six motos en route to capturing both the Supermini 1 (12-15) and Supermini 2 (13-16) championships. Robertson rode impeccably, completing a sweep of the 51cc (7-8) AMA 2 Stock motos for the title win, while Marchbanks went 2-1-1 for the 65cc (7-9) Stock Championship. Sexton’s moto win and two runner up finishes in the 85cc (9-11) Stock Championship earned him the overall, while Cantrell went 1-4-1 for the 85cc (9-11) Stock Championship and Forkner went 1-2-3 for the 85cc (12-14) Stock title win.
“I am proud of each and every Dunlop-sponsored rider at Loretta Lynn’s,” said Primo Marotto, Dunlop’s Manager Amateur Motocross Support. “Everyone did a tremendous job not just at the event but also by qualifying for the biggest race of the year. The Team Dunlop squad performed outstandingly against some very stiff competition, particularly Adam who won two titles. We are especially proud that more than 80 percent of the champions chose to equip their motorcycles with Dunlop Geomax tires at the premier amateur national event of the year.”
