ITP AMA GNCC: Strang Grabs Title


For the first time in his young career, Josh Strang is an AMA National Champion. Strang was able to wrap up the 2010 AMA Can-Am GNCC Series title with one round to spare and earned his eighth podium appearance in the process.

Strang came into ITP Power Line Park in St. Clairsville, Ohio, with a 29-point cushion and after an uncharacteristically poor start, charged his way into the fourth position on his Suzuki RMZ-250 by the end of the first lap.

He would spend the next two hours battling for third place with his championship rival, Charlie Mullins, before taking the position a few turns before the finish.

Josh Strang says: "This was the toughest race of my life. I didn’t get the start I usually get, I couldn’t find my rhythm and Charlie was riding really good. I finally just put my head down and rode as hard as I could and I got him just as we came out of the woods before the finish. It was a heck of a race and it’s incredible to win the title."

Moose Racing would like to congratulate Strang on his championship winning ride and look forward to seeing him defend his title in 2011.

In XC2-class action, team rider Scotty Watkins earned his sixth podium appearance with a hard-earned second place.

Amateur team rider, Jordan Ashburn, took home yet another Overall Amateur Award and also earned his 10th win in the Open A division.

The 13th and final round of the 2010 Can-Am GNCC Series will take place Oct. 23 – 24, 2010 at the Amsoil Ironman GNCC in Crawfordsville, Ind.
