HUFFMAN WINS DENVER EnduroCross AND TAKES OVER POINTS LEAD
Denver, CO. (September 27, 2008) Denver Déjà Vu! Damon Huffman has figured out the tough sport of EnduroCross and took his second main event win in a row on his Team Monster Energy Kawasaki. Although he led from the start, Huffman had serious pressure for most of the main event. Ricky Dietrich, Huffman’s teammate and point’s leader coming into Denver applied pressure until the halfway point but a crash dropped him back to 6th. He worked his way back up to forth before the end. Taddy Blazusiak, the Polish extreme enduro star competing in his first race back after a major injury, took over second for a few laps before a big crash allowed Geoff Aaron to close in and battle over the position for a few laps before taking over the position and holding it to the finish. After all of the excitement, it was Huffman taking the win followed by Aaron, riding the 2-Wheel Drive Christini KTM, Blazusiak, Dietrich and Colton Haaker rounded out the top five.
After four events, with only Columbus Ohio and the Vegas final remaining, Huffman took over the points lead for the first time this season with his Kawasaki teammate, Dietrich holding onto second, eleven points back and Lucas Oil backed Colton Haaker holding onto third position.
The AMA/Maxxis EnduroCross presented by Lucas Oil will head east this coming Saturday, October 4th to the beautiful Schottenstein Center located on campus at Ohio State University . Ricky Dietrich will have the opportunity to keep the $50,000 Geico Triple Crown alive if he can win the main event so he will surely be motivated to end Huffman’s two race win streak. Make sure you make plans to see it in person or even compete in one of the four support classes, which race their main events during the night program in front of the packed arena.
