JOSH STRANG MAINTAINS POINTS LEAD AT MOUNTAIN RIDGE GNCC

FMF Makita Suzuki’s Josh Strang started strong and recovered after a second-lap fall at the Moose Mountain Ridge GNCC. Strang finished seventh at the end of the nearly three-hour race, but he remains positive about his chances of earning the championship. Strang built an early lead in the series with a four-win streak, and he continues to hold the top spot in the standings with a four-point lead over the class.

The young Australian got off to a solid start on his 2010 RM-Z450, and ran as high as third on the first lap. The problems began at the start of the second lap, when Strang went down in the mud.

Despite his difficulties with the track, Josh pushed hard and placed seventh in his class. The finish didn’t get Strang down however, as he is still optimistic about his chances of winning the championship.

The next round of the 2010 GNCC season will take place on June 5-6 at the John Penton held at Sunday Creek Raceway in Millfield, Ohio.
