Robby Bell sent us over his race report on the recent 10 Hours of Glen Helen race. Check out his recap below:

When Ryan Abbatoye, Justin Seeds and I decided we wanted to race the 10 Hours of Glen Helen we started thinking of a way to make the experience a bit different for us. As fate would have it, Justin had a 2003 KX250 two stroke that he was just starting to assemble and it didn’t take much deliberation for us to come to the conclusion that racing a two stroke sounded like a lot of fun. Justin delivered the bike to Precision Concepts and a couple weeks later we had a race bike. We couldn’t wait to start burning laps on it.
