Paul Whibley had little difficulty claiming the overall win at the fourth round of the Parts Unlimited Off-Road Motorcycle and ATV (OMA) Nationals in Lynnville, Indiana, July 6. The Motion Pro Firecracker Cross-Country, co-sanctioned by the Western Indiana Cross-Country (WIXC), was warm and dry but Whibley didn’t have to deal with the dust because he was always out in front on his N-Fab/AmPro Yamaha. His start-to-finish win was his fourth victory of the season.
Second overall went to Air Group/Radiant Racing Husqvarna’s Nick Fahringer who took the checkered flag 22 seconds behind Whibley.
Third went to Dirt Wise/Maxxis/Klim KTM rider Jason Thomas, followed by N-Fab/AmPro Yamaha’s Jordan Ashburn and Pro 2 winner Mark Heresco, on the SRT Off-Road/Kenda/Clockwork KTM.
It was also Heresco’s fourth win in the class.
