BRAZIL, Ind. (Aug. 4, 2016) – Rocky Mountain ATV*MC/KR4 Arrive-N-Ride’s Thad DuVall extended his championship points lead over the weekend with a second-place finish at round six of the Full Gas Sprint Enduro Series. DuVall’s teammates earned an additional three podium finishes to round out a successful weekend of racing in Brazil, Ind.
With substantial rainfall leading up to race weekend, Saturday’s track conditions were slick and muddy to kick off the sixth round of racing. The Midwest sunshine allowed the track to dry up over the course of the weekend, creating ideal conditions for the racers.
Fresh off the ISDE USA Team Training Camp in the days leading up to the race, DuVall came out swinging to capture the first test-win of the day. From there, DuVall battled with Cory Buttrick in the next two tests, where he experienced a big crash on the motocross section of test three, finishing ninth before bouncing back to capture the final three test
wins of the day on Saturday.
On day two, DuVall captured four test-wins and two second-place finishes, ending the weekend on a strong note. However, due to the crashes on day one, DuVall finished second overall for the weekend in the Pro Class, where he continues to lead the way in the championship standings. DuVall’s teammate, Luke Parsons, finished seventh in the Pro Class.
KR4 Arrive-N-Ride team riders and Father/son duo Ted and Troy Horbaty went 1-1 in their respective classes at round six. Troy captured an impressive victory in the 85 (7-11) Class and his father, Ted, emerged victorious in the 40+ C Class.
Team rider Chase Sweda captured a second-place finish in the Lites C Class, where he captured a total of five test-wins aboard his Husqvarna TC250. Sweda continues to hold the championship points lead after six rounds.
Luciano Benavides once again made the trek from Argentina to compete aboard a KR4 Arrive-N-Ride Husqvarna FC250 in the Open A Class. Following a successful string of races, Benavides experienced bad luck, with several crashes throughout the weekend; he ultimately finished in 12th place in the class after missing most of the tests on Sunday. Benavides now sits second overall in the championship standings.
The Rocky Mountain ATV*MC/KR4 Arrive-N-Ride team will return to racing Aug. 13-14 in Young Harris, Ga., for round seven of the Full Gas Sprint Enduro Series.
