Chad Wienen Takes The Win At Aonia
Wienen goes 1-1 for the weekend
Chad Wienen is back and he is back on top with the Wienen Motorsports SSi Walsh Yamaha machine. After going 1-1 over the weekend Wienen was able to let all of the hard work and determination pay off after his season ending injury last year.
As the first gate of the season hit the dirt, Wienen found himself amongst the top five out of the holeshot. By the end of the first lap Wienen made his way up to the third position and soon after passed both John Natalie and Josh Upperman for the lead. After pressure from Joel Hetrick and a short battle, Wienen established a solid lead and was first to take the checkers.
As moto 2 went underway, Wienen came out of the holeshot in a top three position. After quickly passing Josh Upperman Wienen had his eye set on Natalie. After making several attempts to pass his old teammate it seemed as if Wienen was going to remain in second place as the white flag came out. Wienen’s determination shined as he made a clean pass on Natalie in the last corner and came across the finish line first making a clean sweep for the weekend.
“I’ve been dreaming about this for months. After being laid up in a hospital bed and at home I have been thinking about this moment for months and to be able to come out and go 1-1 this first weekend definitely is a dream come true. I look forward to what the rest of the season has to hold for myself and the rest of the Wienen Motorsports SSi Walsh Yamaha team.” Said Wienen. “I would like to thank everyone for their support especially the sponsors who have stuck behind me I would not be sitting in this position without you.”
