Valcourt, Québec, June 17, 2014 – Can-Am® DS 450™ ATV racers earned three total podiums in Pro-level classes at round five of the 2014 Mtn. Dew ATV Motocross National Championship Series in Ohio. Joel Hetrick took second in the Pro class, while fellow Can-Am racers Jeffrey Rastrelli and Ronnie Higgerson each made it on the Pro-Am class box at the Built Ford Tough Briarcliff ATV National.

“We were pleased with the effort put forth by our DS 450 Pro racers, earning three total podium finishes in the two premier classes at the ATV MX Nationals,” said Jeff Leclerc, Racing Project Leader, Can-Am. “Joel Hetrick has now moved into a tie for second place in the Pro ranks and Ronnie Higgerson currently leads the Pro-Am class in points after five rounds of racing. We just have to keep our heads down and stay focused on earning victories and, ultimately, class championships.”

Briarcliff MX in Nashport, Ohio, hosted its first ever Mtn. Dew ATV Motocross National Championship Series event. Eighteen Pro class racers, more than 20 Pro-Am class competitors and hundreds of amateur class riders suited up for round five of the series, the inaugural Built Ford Tough Briarcliff ATV National, held over Father’s Day weekend.
