Irvine, CA – KTM’s Taddy Blazusiak won both main events at the GEICO AMA EnduroCross Finals presented by Lucas Oil in Las Vegas. Monster Kawasaki’s Justin Soule finished second in the first main event followed by Husqvarna’s Cory Graffunder. In the second main event, Monster Kawasaki’s Taylor Robert earned his first ever EnduroCross podium with a second ahead of KTM’s Mike Brown. Blazusiak ended with a perfect 240 points and Brown had a solid second in the championship with Soule overtaking Geoff Aaron for third in the chase.
Beta’s Cody Webb set the fastest lap time during the afternoon Hot Laps, which determine the heat race gate picks and bragging rights. Blazusiak was second with Brown third, Graffunder forth and Soule fifth. Webb, Blazusiak and Brown won the three heat races for the direct transfer to the double main events. Destry Abbott and Colton Haaker were among the surprise non qualifiers.
Blazusiak took the $1000 Girardi Wealth Management Holeshot award to start the first main event followed by Soule, who stayed close during the entire main event to keep the race interesting; but Blazusiak rode a flawless race to keep his perfect season intact. Husqvarna’s Graffunder got on the podium in only his second race back after a broken wrist kept him out of most of the season. Brown passed Webb in the last turn to take forth. British KTM Rider, Johnathan Walker, rode a good race to finish sixth ahead of Robert, Bobby Prochnau, Kyle Redmond, Geoff Aaron, Jacob Argubright and Gary Sutherlin.
