green flag dropped at 10am Saturday morning for what would become the closest and hardest fought battle in the history of the race. Emotions ran high as the battle never let up through the entire 24 hours. When the sun came up on Sunday morning the JCR team had the lead but only by a few seconds. Exhausted and fatigued, the team was running on pure desire and refused to concede. On the final lap at the end of 24 hours of hard racing, Timmy Weigand got on the bike and took it to the checkered flag with a victory margin of a mere 2 seconds. The JCR/Honda team was overwhelmed with excitement as the 2010 “24 hours of Glen Helen” victory was finally theirs.
“I’m pumped to have defended the championship,” said Colton Udall. “This race really came down to who wanted it more and I have to congratulate my team for never giving in and charging to the finish. The JCR/Honda pit crew worked through the night and I can’t thank them enough for all their effort. Special thanks to Johnny Campbell, Eric Siraton and Hide Hanawa.”
“What a historic battle and great win for the JCR/Honda team,” Johnny Campbell said. “Back-to-back Glen Helen 24 hour wins. Colton Udall coordinated a great effort and Nick Brozovich really brought some speed to the table. The Eric Siraton prepped Honda CRF450X was solid the entire race. Special thanks to Lucas Oils for supplying us with such good lubricants and the JCR/Honda pit staff for working tirelessly thru the night.”
