Rockstar Energy Husqvarna’s Josh Strang started strong and held tough to take the win at this weekend’s Kenda Full Gas Sprint Enduro at Wade Farm near Bedford, Indiana. Strang won the opening test of the weekend and then added two more test wins before finishing the two-day event with a 28-second cushion over teammate Thad Duvall.
“Both days went very well for me,” Strang said. “I took the win for each day and earned valuable points in the series overall. It was dusty so I pushed hard on the straightaways to gain time, and this put me on top of the podium for the round!”
Duvall, who was racing for the first time in six weeks after injuring his wrist, topped six tests over the course of the weekend, but a mistake in the final test on Sunday dropped the West Virginia rider out of contention for the win.
“It felt great to be back on the bike and battling with my teammate,” Duvall said. “I had a blast and really enjoyed riding the FX 450, but I am excited to get back on my FX 350 and get ready for the final half of my upcoming races.”
Third overall went to KR4/Husqvarna’s Layne Michael, while Tely Energy Racing’s Grant Baylor was fourth.
