IRVINE, Cal. (October 7th) –The highlight video from the fifth stop of the 2014 GEICO AMA EnduroCross Championship has been released.
A terrific crowd in Denver, Colorado watched Rockstar/Lucas Oil/JCRHonda’s Colton Haaker grab the Nexen Tire $500 Holeshot award in the main event and battle past early race leader and five-time champion Taddy Blazusiak on the Factory Red Bull KTM. Beta/GEICO/Stillwell Performance-backed Cody Webb had a race full of contact while trying to challenge for the front spots. Blazusiak and Webb would finish second and third, respectfully.
Haaker’s second win of the year keeps the championship points battle intensely close with the Expert Main Event top three only separated by a single point with Haaker and Blazusiak tied for first and Webb one point back. Racing doesn’t get any closer!
