Round 1: Outback Motorsports Park – Presented by “FMF Racing” Race Recap

Well, that’s it for Round 1: Presented by FMF Racing. We had an amazing turnout for the rebirth Full Gas Sprint Enduro 2.0. We offered riders 8 Special Tests on Saturday the amateur day and 10 Tests on Sunday in the deep sand of Outback Motorsports Park.

With the Full Gas Sprint Enduro Season now underway, Steward Baylor would come out with the first overall win of the season over Tyler Medaglia from Brookfield, NA Canada. Medaglia put on a very strong performance, winning all 5 Cross Tests on the day against the 5x National Enduro Champion. But with Baylor’s speed in the Enduro Tests, it would be enough to edge out the Canadian Motocross star by 3 seconds.

Josh Strang put in a solid ride himself, winning Test 7 and going 3rd overall on the day.

In the XC2 class we would seen a great battle between Benn Nelko, Ruy Barbosa and Evan Smith. Nelko had a strong opening Enduro Test, but we would see Smith win the first Cross Test. Nelko would come back in Test 3 after a bad second Test, to edge Smith by only .678 seconds. Tests 4 and 5 would see Barbosa put on a charge winning both Tests by over a second. As the day progressed though, Nelko stayed on pace to win the last 3 Tests to secure his 1st XC2 win of the 2022 Full Gas Season. Barbosa would take 2nd, while Smith would round out the podium.

In Pro-Am, Tyler Palmer would take the class win followed by Zack Hayes. Palmer would also finish 8th overall on the day. Coming in 3rd place all the way from New York would be Dominick Morse.
