JOSH STRANG AND ANDREW DELONG FINISH 7TH AND 8TH OVERALL AT SUMTER KENDA AMA NATIONAL ENDURO, RESPECTIVELY

ROCKSTAR ENEGERY HUSQVARNA FACTORY RACING MADE THEIR OFF-ROAD DEBUT THIS WEEKEND WITH TOP TEN FINISHES.

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Josh Strang and Andrew DeLong put in solid rides at the first National Enduro of the 2015 season. Good weather and traction made for a nice day as the team rode to top ten finishes. Strang, new to the Husqvarna team, made progress throughout the day battling between 4th and 7th positions, finishing the last two tests strong and ending the day 7th overall. “Today was good. I enjoyed the race but I’m still trying to get used to the different style of racing and the tight trees,” explained Strang. “I felt comfortable but a little off the pace. With some more time in the woods and some extra time on the bike it should be good.”

 

Husqvarna veteran and reigning National Enduro Champion, Andrew DeLong, entered his 4th season on a Husky.  He battled at the front lines for most of the day but a late race incident dropped him back down a bit, closing out the day in 8th place. “I had a solid day on the FC 350 that worked great, just not the results I was looking for,” said DeLong.
