Coast to coast, Husqvarna racers were in action over the weekend, celebrating a national win and two season bests between the Fred Andrews Racing (FAR) Husqvarna team at the Unadilla GNCC in New York, and factory Husqvarna racers at the Ontario, California round of the AMA EnduroCross series.
Andrew DeLong scored another big win in the XC2 division of the Unadilla GNCC – this time sharing the podium with his FAR Husqvarna teammate Nick Davis who pulled off a third-place finish. “I am so excited to get third,” Davis exclaimed. “My arms pumped up the first two laps, but after they relaxed I could start riding like I knew I could.”
Neither of the FAR racers got out to a good start, and had their work cut out for them at Unadilla. By the halfway point the TC250s of DeLong and Davis had worked their way through the field, and Andrew was finally able to seize the lead after a swift pit stop.
“I pushed my way to the front today,” DeLong said. “I need to make up points on the leaders and I did that today. I needed to win!”
“Both my guys gave 110% today,” said a very proud Fred Andrews. “Thanks to our pit crew for all the help today. We’re so happy to put two Husqvarnas on the box!”
DeLong’s win granted him another valuable advantage in the XC2 Championship points chase, steadily closing the gap on the lead even after having missed the first two rounds of the season. He is now third in points, three points away from second and a mere 13 points from the championship lead.
