Round 6 - Thad DuVall
Round 6 of the GNCC series was held in Springville, Indiana. After Thad Duvall’s
win in the previous round on a Honda 250 F in wet conditions, the team decide to ride the
250 F again. With that decision made, Duvall was anxious to prove the 250 F in dry
conditions as well.
After a decent top 5 start, Duvall settled down in the top 3, fighting for the lead
with KTM riders Charlie Mullins and Kailub Russell. With the best lap time on the
third lap, he moved into second place, being just 4 seconds from first. While
chasing down Kailub Russell for second, Russell crash hard. Duvall thought that he was
serious hurt and
|checked on his status. Russell was OK but in the mean
time he lost contact with first place Mullins, and worse he found himself battling again with the
racer that he stopped for! Now in full racing mode to make it to the finish, he made a
small mistake passing a lapper and Russell got away.
Overall a successful showing for Team Shenandoah Honda/USWE-sport.com with another podium and picking
up some value points for third place in the standings. Duvall has now an 8 point lead over Chris Bach
for third while Mullins and Russell sit in first and second place.
Results Round 6: 1. Mullins 2. Russell 3. Duvall (Honda 250 F)
