2013 OMA Nationals

The second of nine rounds in the 2013 OMA Nationals got underway this past weekend under  muddy conditions at Dawson Springs, Kentucky.

And just as he took a flawless victory at round one in Alabama in late February, Husaberg Factory rider Russell Bobbitt was once again the winner. Joining the Husaberg TE300 rider on the Kentucky OMA Nationals podium was fellow Husaberg rider Nick Fahringer and

Husaberg reports that Bobbitt, a former KTM rider,  launched his motorcycle off the line to earn the holeshot as the riders rounded the first corner. From that point on, he continued to stretch his lead throughout the two-hour plus race on the 7 mile looped course. When Bobbitt crossed the finish line he had lapped up to fourth place and finished an impressive 3 minutes ahead of Fahringer.

Russell Bobbitt (Husaberg TE300) says: “I am adapting well to the Husaberg and have really enjoyed racing the first two rounds of the OMA Series. Today, my race was good from the start to the finish. My goal is to keep my win streak alive and maintain the points lead through the end of the season as we work our way toward a championship.”

The next round of the 2013 OMA Nationals will occur  May 11-12 in Bedford, Indiana.
