Colton Haaker: “I couldn’t have asked for a better crowd or result!”

Haaker quickly went from fourth to first at the start of the second heat and pulled away, then held strong to take the win. He pulled a massive holeshot in his first bracket race to take the win, earned another victory in his second bracket race, and then lined up for the final bracket in the hopes to earn the important extra championship point. He took the early lead in the final bracket and held his ground to take the extra point. He was second at the start of the Super EnduroCross Main, but then went down shortly after the start which put him at the back of the pack. He put on a heroic ride and made his way back through the field and was one bike length behind the leader by lap seven. He went to battle and made an impressive pass for the lead right after the finish line the following lap, then pulled a gap and held strong to take the win.

“Costa Mesa was awesome this weekend,” said Colton Haaker. “I couldn’t have asked for a better crowd or result! With a pretty flowy track, I was able to be aggressive and charge the whole race to get my first win of the season! I’m excited for Reno next weekend and I hope to keep the momentum rolling! Thanks to the whole team for the support!” (source: rockstar energy husqvarna factory racing)
