Russell was the top rider after both days of competition at the Rock Crusher Farm facility. On Saturday, Russell finished approximately 20 seconds clear of runner-up Thad Duvall (Rockstar Energy Husqvarna) and approximately another 30 seconds ahead of Layne Michael (Husqvarna), followed by Josh Strang (Babbitt’s Monster Energy Kawasaki ), and Jordan Ashburn (Babbitt’s Monster Energy Kawasaki ).

Russell topped the charts again on day two, taking the day’s win by approximately 10 seconds ahead of Strang, followed by Duvall, Michael, and Ashburn.

In the overall column, it was Russell on top, followed by Duvall, Strang, Michael, and Ashburn.

In Pro 2, Evan Smith (Husqvarna/Max Motorsports/FXR) took the win ahead of Jesse Ansley (KTM), Mike Witkowski (Beta), and Ben Parsons (Husqvarna).

“It’s nice to wrap up my second Full Gas Sprint Enduro Championship a round early,” Russell said. I” had a great weekend of racing and was able to win seven out of 12 tests. The cross test was really dry/slick, and it was tough to charge, so we were all close in times. I really enjoyed the tighter, twisty and very rough enduro test and I was able to use that test to get a comfortable lead on day one.”

The Kenda Full Gas Sprint Enduro Series returns to action on September 1-2 at Chestnut Corner in Laurens, South Carolina for the eighth and final round of the series.  CN
