2012 GEICO AMA EnduroCross Championship
The 2012 GEICO AMA EnduroCross Championship got underway this past weekend at Orleans Arena in Las Vegas.
Taking the expert-class win after a flawless run was Colton Haaker. It was the Lucas Oil Kawasaki rider’s first-ever main-event win in EnduroCross, and he lead every lap.
Joining Haaker on the Vegas EnduroCross podium was Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Justin Soule and KTM’s Taddy Blazusiak, respectively. Blazusiak, the reigning EnduroCross Champion, crashed at turn one, but came back to take the final podium position.
Speaking of the opening round, the series says “after going undefeated in 2011, Blazusiak had a tough day and crashed a few times in practice and during his heat race, which forced him to the Semi. Beta’s Cody Webb finished fourth ahead of Taylor Robert rounded out the top five. Mike Brown, Cory Graffunder, Kyle Redmond, Kevin Rookstool, Brobby Prochnau and Destry Abbott rounded out the top eleven riders that made the main event.”
The Las Vegas round will be aired on the Lucas Motorsports Hour on NBC Sports Network at 4:30 p.m. EDT Saturday, June. 23. The series continues for round two of eight at the Power Balance Pavilion in Sacramento, Calif., Saturday, June 9.
