KTM Press Center - 7/15/19

FAIRMOUNT CITY, Pa. – It was a dominant weekend for FMF KTM Factory Racing’s Kailub Russell, who swept both days of Round 6 of the 2019 Full Gas Sprint Enduro Series in Fairmount, Pennsylvania. With consistent finishes inside the top-two on both days, Russell was able to further extend his points lead to 46 as the series winds down to the final two rounds.

On Saturday, Russell carried in his momentum from the previous round as he won the first cross test and enduro test of the day. He went on to capture one more enduro test-win, in addition to three second-place finishes to ultimately top day one by about five seconds. On Sunday, Russell went 2-2-1 in the cross-test sections, while nailing 1-1-2 scores in the enduro tests to win the day by about 14 seconds. With a combined time of 01:11:34.596, Russell was able to best his opponents by almost 20 seconds on the weekend.

Russell: “It was a fun weekend, I really enjoy this place. I stayed consistent all weekend and I felt really good in the enduro tests, they just kind of suited me and I was able to make up most of my time there.”

Next Race: August 10-11, 2019 – Round 7 – Haeysville, North Carolina
