Russell (FMF KTM) was blazing hot right out of the gate, winning five out of the six tests on Saturday and topping the day’s standings. He cooled off just a bit on day two, finishing second to defending champ Josh Strang but the KTM rider had enough of a cushion to win the overall by more than 20 seconds.

Strang (Babbitt’s/Monster Energy Kawasaki Team Green) ended up second overall, with Thad Duvall (Rockstar Energy Husqvarna) taking third. Duvall was plenty fast but a couple of mistakes over the two days cost him any chance of winning.

Josh Toth (FMF KTM) and Evan Smith (Husqvarna/Max Motorsports/FXR Racing) rounded out the top five overall. He was also the Pro2-class winner.

Tegan Temple was second in Pro2 at 11th overall.

In the Women’s Pro division, Husqvarna-backed Tayla Jones took the overall win by over two minutes ahead of Mackenzie Tricker.

The Kenda Full Gas Sprint Enduro Series returns to action on March 2-3 in Blackshear, Georgia for round two of the series.
