West Point, Tennessee – FMF/KTM’s Charlie Mullins kept his win streak alive by taking his third win of the season at the Rad Dad Enduro in Westpoint, Tennessee, round number three of the 2014 Kenda AMA National Enduro Series.

Win number three didn’t come very as effectively as the initial two, notwithstanding, as Mullins won just two of the six tests, and went under substantial weight from N-FAB Am Pro Yamaha’s Brad Bakken and AirGroup Racing’s Nick Fahringer all through the race. At last, Mullins took the win by 25 seconds over Bakken, with Fahringer not a long ways behind in third.

Mullins lost his back brakes in test one and needed to agree to the ninth-best time in the test, as Maxxis/KLIM/DirtWise KTM’s Jesse Groemm got off to a brisk begin by posting the quickest time in the opening test.

Mullins returned solid to win tests two and three and could fabricate a sufficiently major prompt last him for whatever is left of the day. Meanwhile, Fahringer, Bakken, and Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Andrew DeLong battled about the sprinter up position, with Bakken getting the high ground ahead of schedule subsequent to fixing test four and after that holding off a late charge by Fahringer, who won the last two tests.

Regardless of a weight filled race, notwithstanding, Mullins could reinforce his offer for a third national enduro title by taking a hard-battled win.

“My day began off truly harsh, yet I could click off two or three test wins in the following two tests and get back in the number one spot,” said Mullins. “From that point forward, I simply attempted to ride a relentless race, however I went down in tests four and five. Be that as it may, generally, I’m happy to keep my streak alive.”

Bakken developed with the sprinter up space toward the finish of six tests, edging Fahringer by a negligible seven seconds.

Groemm wound up with fourth after a solid begin, be that as it may, the New Jersey rider endured a few tip-overs in the last couple of tests, which cost him significant time.

In the wake of being in the blend early, DeLong endured a hard crash in test five and in the end completed 6th, only in front of FMF/KTM’s Mike Lafferty, who turned out to be sick amid the race and was not ready to hold his initial pace.

Manufacturing plant Beta rider Cory Buttrick handed over his best ride of the year with a solid eighth, while KR4 Performance’s Shane Hufford and North Carolina’s Trevor Bollinger (Hon) balanced the main 10.

After three rounds, Mullins drives Groemm by 34 focuses in the arrangement standings, with Fahringer one point behind Groemm in third.

Husqvarna bolster rider Craig DeLong took the win in the Rekluse Expert-AA division, going ahead solid in the last two tests to prevail over class focuses pioneer Tyler Trammell of Georgia.

“I began off sort of moderate, I had arm direct in the principal test and could scarcely hold tight,” said DeLong. “I took care of business in the second test and after that I just dropped the mallet beginning with the third test.”

Trammell held the early lead on his KTM be that as it may, free back spokes moderated him in the last test.

“It was a decent day for us,” said Trammell. “I had solid tests throughout the day and I won the fourth test by a lot, yet we had a few spokes come free toward the end and it backed us off a bit, yet it was as yet a decent day.”

Ryan Belue of Travelers Rest, South Carolina was third on a N-FAB Am Pro Yamaha.
