Russell Wins Jack Pine National Enduro

 Moorestown, MI – FMF KTM Factory rider Kailub Russell took the win at the Jack Pine National Enduro to extend his points lead in the Kenda AMA National Enduro Series, while his teammate Russell Bobbitt finished 3rd.

 Russell was consistent with his results throughout the seven special tests. He was able to collect race wins during tests two, four and seven. Around the halfway point of the race, he moved into the lead and never lost the lead from that point on.

 “I really enjoyed this race,” stated Russell. “The track was really sandy in sections and pretty fun. It did start raining pretty hard for the last two tests which mixed things up. I was happy to get a win in that last section as it was pretty tight throughout there. I’m happy to get back on the top of the podium.”

 Bobbitt also had a great race. Bobbitt challenged for the lead early in the race and was still in contention heading into the last test. He took one special test win on his way to a 3rd place finish.

 Now eight rounds into the series, Russell holds the points lead by 34 points while Bobbitt currently sits 2nd overall.
