September 13, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – The Parts Unlimited Unadilla GNCC, Rounds 10, took place this past weekend in Unadilla, NY. Track conditions were really rough, slick in some areas, and perfect in others, caused from early morning showers. The clouds eventually cleared allowing the sun to come out which had race time temperatures in the lows 80’s.

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Josh Strang bolted off the line and claimed a holeshot. He held his lead for the first few miles of the race before encountering other riders. He was locked in an intense battled for most of the race where he was going back and forth for second place. With one lap left in the eight lap race, Strang made the pass for 2nd and was able to hold his position until the finish. Josh Strang finished the race in 2nd for the XC1 Pro Class; a great way to come back from the summer break.
“The race went well. Not the result we were after, but still a solid finish. I struggled a little throughout the race, so a 2nd place finish isn’t bad, i just want more. The whole team did great and it was good to get back to racing!” Said Josh Strang.
Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Andrew DeLong did not participate in this round due to a previously sustained injury.
