Following his opening round victory on Friday night, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna’s Colton Haaker made it two-in-a-row on Saturday at Round 2 of the 2020 AMA EnduroCross Series at Glen Helen Raceway. Haaker had a big crash in practice but he quickly turned things around in race one when he got a second place start on his Husqvarna FX350. He made a few mistakes on the large and expansive Glen Helen circuit to cost him a position. He finish third.
With an inverted start in Moto two, Haaker lined up in the second row but that didn’t stop him from charging his way up to third immediately. He took the lead on the first lap to win by six seconds. KTM’s Cody Webb was second. Heading into the third and final moto, Haaker had a 3-1 score with Webb tied on points with a 2-2.
Haaker holeshot third and final moto way to a 5.8-second victory in the final moto over Trysten Hart and Cody Webb. Haaker said, “Round 2 was another win but per usual the result came with different circumstances. I overcame a nasty crash in practice and some bad luck in Moto 1 to finish the night off strong with two wins and the overall. I can’t wait for the races in a week to keep the momentum rolling. I’m looking forward to working with the team and thank them for the continued support!”
