2013 AMA National Hare & Hound Series

The 2013 AMA National Hare & Hound Series headed to Jericho, Utah, this past weekend for round six.

And for the fourth consecutive race, Factory FMF/KTM’s Kurt Caselli was victorious, the finishing ahead of Kawasaki’s Jacob Argubright and Beta’s Nick Burson.

When the race got underway, Caselli began in third position at the end of the bomb run. His KTM teammate, Ivan Ramirez, earned the holeshot and led the pack as they began the first loop.

Caselli quickly passed into second place part way into the first loop. Moments later he was able to get around his teammate after Ramirez got turned around on the course. Once in the lead, Caselli quickly gapped the field and went on to collect his fourth win of the season with a four minute lead over the second place ride of Jacob Argubright. Ramirez eventually got back on track and was able to come back to a fourth place finish, KTM reports.

Kurt Caselli says: “The weather was amazing at this race. It was great for riding but a little dusty until I got out front. Once I was in the lead, I was able to just cruise and ride it in for the win.”

The next round will also occur Jericho, Utah, on May 18, 2013.
