VIDEO. Colton Haaker Takes Round 2 Win! Amarillo Endurocross Highlights.

When the Pro race action kicked off for real it was Noah Kepple who took the first Moose Racing Holeshot of the night in moto one with Hart, Nick Thompson, Gerston and Haaker in tow.

Hart took over the lead and Haaker worked his way into second quickly with Gerston hanging close in third. Haaker managed to pass Hart halfway through the moto and opened gap. Hart hung on for second and Gerston crashed near the end of the race to allow Abbott and TM rider Ty Cullins through for third and fourth. Gerston recovered for fifth in the moto.

The second moto race start inverts the finish positions from race one, so the top eight riders start on row two. LeBlond took advantage of his front-row start to take the holeshot and was followed by Thompson and fellow Utah rider Anthony Johnson.

Abbott was the first of the top riders to work his way through the field and took the lead on the second lap. Hart and Haaker meanwhile were fifth and sixth until a mistake pushed Hart further back.

Haaker kept up relentless pace to move into second but his moto two ride saw a few mistakes which kept Abbott clear out front and able to take the moto win, the second of his career. Haaker was second ahead of Cullins who put in a great ride for third in the moto and Germany’s Tim Apolle finished fifth on a Beta.
