Rnd 2 - Maxxis General Bikes: Mullins Takes It

Sunday, March 9, 2008 | 12:00 AM

FMF Suzuki's Charlie Mullins bounced back big after a tough day at the GNCC season opener in Florida to win series round two, the Maxxis General GNCC in Washington, Georgia. Mullins followed Red Bull KTM's Nathan Kanney through the first two laps as the pair made a two-man break away, opening a gap of over a minute over the rest of the field. GNCC Champion David Knight climbed into the number-three position, but he was never able to close the gap, and in fact lost some time throughout the race. Halfway through, Mullins passed Kanney, and while Kanney chased "Hot Rod" all the way to the end, he wasn't able to get into passing position.

FMF Suzuki riders Paul Whibley and Jimmy Jarrett finished fourth and fifth in front of Barry Hawk, who grabbed the Racer X Holeshot Award but made a few mistakes on the first lap.

In XC2, Am-Pro Yamaha's Thad DuVall romped to his second-straight win, with Monster Energy Kawasaki's Andrew Matusek taking second in just his second pro race. Monster Andrews Yamaha rider Dustin Gibson overcame a first-turn crash to take third.
