For the first time in his young career, Josh Strang is an AMA National Champion! Strang was able to wrap up the 2010 Can-Am GNCC Series title with one round to spare and earned his eighth podium appearance in the process.
Strang came into the ITP Power Line Park event with a 29-point cushion and after an uncharacteristically poor start, charged his way into the fourth position by the end of the first lap. He would spend the next two hours battling for third place with his championship rival, Charlie Mullins, before taking the position a few turns before the finish.
"This was the toughest race of my life," said Strang. "I didn't get the start I usually get, I couldn't find my rhythm and Charlie was riding really good. I finally just put my head down and rode as hard as I could and I got him just as we came out of the woods before the finish. It was a heck of a race and it's incredible to win the title."
