Competition picked up as racers challenged each other knowing that the series is drawing to an end. Overall standings in the 2017 Kenda Full Gas Sprint Enduro Series shifted last weekend. Jordan Ashburn is now leading by seven points over second place rider Steward Baylor. This is Jordan’s second big win in a row after placing 1st in Round 4 of the series at Ohio.
The track conditions got pretty bad as the weekend progressed with temperatures reaching 87 degrees and an average humidity level of 67%. Over the weekend the track began to dry up making it hard for riders to keep traction while creating dust that at times was almost impossible to see through.
Jordan Commented on the Weekend;
“I started Saturday with a big win on the first cross test. I managed to hold the lead the rest of the day over Stew and Cory. It came down to the last test. Stew and I were really close but I was able to edge him out for the days win.”
“Day two didn’t start as well, the dusty-grass-track was really tough to ride. I stayed constant and kept in the top 3 all day. For the finally test, I was 4 secs down from the leader and had to make a hard push to make up some ground. I ended up nudging him out by 3 secs by days end with an overall win for the weekend.”
