Kailub Russell and his FMF/KTM teammate Charlie Mullins took the top spots at the 11th round of the GNCC Series at Power Line Park in Ohio.

According to Ultimate Motorcycling, Russell and Mullins started out as two of the top three racers and were competing for the lead after the end of the first lap. There was some back and forth during the closing minutes, with Russell pulling away for the win.

“We are very proud of both of our riders today,” team manager Antti Kallonen told Ultimate Motorcycling. “Russell also rode strong all day and is very determined to keep his bike on the top step of the podium in the final two rounds. The points chase is very close and we expect it will come down to the wire.”

Russell benefitted immensely from the win, as it put him only four points behind Paul Whibley in the championship standings. The two motorsports riders should be the main challengers for the title, as third-place Rory Mead is nearly 70 points behind. With only two rounds remaining, both racers will be looking to gain an advantage heading into the penultimate event in Indiana later this month.
