Mullins-foggy-enduro-6-25-13Blain, PA – Factory FMF/KTM rider Charlie Mullins earned his sixth win of the season at the seventh round of the Rekluse/AMA National Enduro Series after a tight battle with veteran rider Mike Lafferty.

Mullins struggled in the first test section after he suffered a crash which cost him a lot of time and placed him sixth overall in that test section. He was able to find his rhythm in the second test where he scored the fastest time. He then continued his streak to take the fastest time in the next two test sections.

Heading to the final test, Mullins had pulled himself out of his time deficit and was leading by 6 seconds on Lafferty. “I knew I had to have a great ride in the last section to hold on for the win,” commented Mullins. “Luckily, I rode a mistake free test and came out the fastest by 5 seconds.”

PICKERINGTON, Ohio — The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) is pleased to announce the 2012 AMA Rekluse National Enduro Championship Series, presented by Moose Racing. The 2012 season features 10 rounds of premier off-road racing and showcases a range of skill-, age- and displacement-based classes.

Pre-registration for the first round in Wedgefield, S.C., on Jan. 29 opens Nov. 16 at www.moto-tally.com/NEPG/PreEntry.aspx.

“The AMA Rekluse National Enduro Championship Series, presented by Moose Racing, is coming off another strong season in 2011,” said AMA Director of Racing Joe Bromley. “The National Enduro Promotions Group (NEPG) continues to improve the series for racers, clubs, partners and fans. The participation counts show that we’re going in the right direction, and we’re looking forward to more improvements in 2012.”

The AMA National Enduro Championship dates to the founding of the AMA in 1924. It is one of the longest-running national motorsports championships in the world, and today is one of the premier off-road racing series in the country. It is designed to provide a competitive format for all levels of riders, from amateur competitors to the country’s fastest enduro racers.

“The AMA Rekluse National Enduro Championship Series, presented by Moose Racing, would not be possible without the hard work and collaboration of the AMA-chartered clubs that host the individual rounds,” said the NEPG’s Alan Randt. “Last year featured a number of thrilling battles across all classes, not the least of which was FMF/KTM Racing’s Russell Bobbitt taking the 2011 title with a final-round win over teammate Charlie Mullins. We’re expecting no less from the 2012 series.”

Following the South Carolina opener, the 2012 championship will also stop in Georgia, Tennessee, Louisiana, Wyoming, Pennsylvania, Missouri and Indiana before wrapping up on Nov. 4 in Stanton, Ala. The full schedule is below. For updates, see NationalEnduro.com.
