Motion Pro Sponsored Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing?s Andrew Delong Finishes 6th at Round 6 of The National Enduro Championship Series

 

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Andrew DeLong returned for the 6th round of the AMA National Enduro Championship Series, known as the Inyan Kara National Enduro, with hopes of a reoccurrence of the previous round. The riders woke Sunday morning at 6,000 feet elevation in Upton, Wyoming to almost inches of rainfall, giving cause to the officials to shorten the course from 6 to 5 tests. The rain created many unpassable streams as the composition of the terrain in Upton was not absorbent of the water. Many riders were not able to complete the first test because of the difficulty level, but Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory rider, Andrew DeLong was not stopped, and finished the test 5th.

Moving into test 2, DeLong had more knowledge of the slippery dirt, riding smart and finishing 5th again. He stayed consistent througout the rest of the day, only scarificing one position to an overall 6th place finish.

“It was a fun but tough race. I‘m just pumped I made it through the race despite my injured wrist and was able to get some points,” explained DeLong.

The reigning champ’s younger brother, Craig DeLong also put in an impressive ride on his TC 250, ending the day 9th overall.

Josh Strang of Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing remained sidelined due to previous injury and is focused on heeling for GNCC.
