Factory Husqvarna's Andrew DeLong came into the Little Brown Jug National Enduro feeling a bit under the weather, but didn't let it stop him from doing what he needed to do – ride consistently and protect his lead in the championship. Andrew did that and more with a podium finish in South Carolina, and managed to put an even bigger buffer on his points lead with a 3rd place finish. Fellow Factory Husqvarna rider Russell Bobbitt enjoyed his return to action with a strong 6th place finish at the Little Brown Jug National Enduro.
The tough conditions in Union, South Carolina made the day even more challenging for racers

Union, SC – Factory FMF/KTM rider Grant Baylor took his first-career AMA National Enduro win near his hometown at the ninth round of the series in the most notable race so far this season.
National Enduro fans were excited to see who would come out on top at this race as previously injured riders had returned to racing and an entire new team showed up to compete at this round to make it the most stacked field to date.
Union, South Carolina (August 31, 2014) – Grant Baylor claimed his first career national enduro victory over a stacked field of competitors at this weekend’s Little Brown Jug National Enduro, the penultimate round of the Kenda AMA National Enduro Series in Union, South Carolina.
