Russell Wins Mountaineer Run GNCC


Masontown, WV – Factory FMF/KTM rider Kailub Russell led wire-to-wire to take the victory at the Mountaineer Run, the seventh round of the GNCC Series. His teammate and current point leader, Charlie Mullins, finished 2nd overall. 

 

The two KTM riders led the pack around the first corner of the dry and rocky 3-hour race with Russell earning the holeshot and Mullins taking the runner-up spot. 

 

“I tried to sprint the first three miles because I wasn’t sure who was behind me and wanted to get a gap,” stated Russell. “Once I saw it was Charlie (Mullins), I was able to pace myself and then sprinted again once we got into lappers.” 

 

Russell continued, “I had a pretty uneventful day, which was good for a change. My factory services motor got me off to a good start and I was able to lead the whole race to take the win.” 

 

Mullins remained close to Russell for the first half of the race before suffering a big crash at the end of the third lap. “I rang my bell pretty hard during that crash and never really recovered. Luckily, I was able to hang on for 2nd place but I was pretty shook up from that spill,” stated Mullins. 

 

With the Factory FMF/KTM riders finishing in the top two spots for the day, Mullins will maintain a 7 point lead over Russell heading to the next round. “The next race is in Ohio which is where I grew up. I am looking forward to that event and hopefully getting another win,” stated Mullins. 

 

Factory FMF/KTM support rider Grant Baylor secured a 3rd place result in the GNCC XC2 Pro Lites class. He was sitting as high-up as 2nd place near the end of the race before stopping for a second pit stop. He fell to 3rd place on that stop and was unable to make up the time lost in the remaining lap. Now seven rounds into the series, Baylor is ranked 2nd in the standings just 5 points shy of the point leader.

 

The WXC star, Kacy Martinez, won her sixth race of the season. She took another commanding win over the rest of the field to continue to increase her point lead. She now has a 19 point cushion in the championship chase.
