Buttrick Earns Top-Ten
American Beta's Factory Enduro rider Cory Buttrick finished in a solid 9th place at round one of the AMA/NEPG National Enduro series this past weekend in Pelion, South Carolina. The young racer from Ohio has not raced a National event since May of 2012 due to an injury. Other than being a little rusty off the start, the day went very well overall and he used the race to gain more seat time on his Beta 300 RR.
"I had a decent start to the season. Would of liked to finish stronger at the end of the race, but much improvement to come as I continue to gel with the bike. I can't thank American Beta and all of my sponsors enough for their help and support this year. I am very grateful." Buttrick explains.
Buttrick's teammate Justin Sode had a few issues including wrapping his shift lever around his footpeg on his 250 RR forcing him to be stuck in second gear for one of the tests. Also residing in Ohio, Sode finished the day in 23rd overall and is looking forward to the next round to improve his results.
Sode describes his race, "Round 1 of the National Enduro did not go as planned. I spent two weeks down south away from the snow preparing for the race. I didn't have the proper set up at the start of the race causing me to lose some time. In section two, within a mile of the start, I broke my shifter off, causing me to be stuck in 2nd gear for the remainder of the test. The last four tests I put in solid, consistent times."
