Factory FMF/KTM SCORE/Baja Team riders Mike Brown, Ivan Ramirez and Quinn Cody will join their teammate Kurt Caselli to compete in the 9th round of the National Hare & Hound Series this weekend in Johnson Valley, CA.
Caselli, the reigning National Hare & Hound Champion, is currently sitting 2nd in the standings this year after sitting out part of the series with a shoulder injury. With two rounds left, he is hoping to put his KTM at the front of the pack this weekend to close his point deficit in the overall point standings.
His teammates are using the Hare & Hound event in preparation of the upcoming SCORE/Baja 1000 event. “The terrain of a Hare & Hound race is the most similar race we have to the SCORE/Baja series in the US,” stated Cody. “We decided it would be a good idea to get some time on our bikes and practice under our belt by having the whole team race the Hare & Hound.”
