Colton Haaker wraps up 2016 AMA Endurocross title in Ontario
Colton Haaker has secured the 2016 AMA Endurocross title having placed as runner-up at the eighth and final round of the series in Ontario, California.

Holding a 14-point lead over his closest championship rival Cody Webb heading into the event, despite enduring a drama-filled night of racing Colton claimed the title with a second place result.

Second in his heat race Colton took an early lead in the night‰Ûªs main event, firing away from the start to take an early lead. Looking like he might end his 2016 Endurocross campaign with a win a mistake on lap two dropped him into the runner-up position before further mistakes prevented him from challenging for the win.

Charging hard despite knowing that only a handful of points would secure him the title Haaker went on to endure a crash filled main event, yet remained in the runner-up position through the 15-lap race. Claiming his third runner-up result of the championship, together with his five main event wins he finished an eventual nine points clear of runner-up KTM's Cody Webb in the championship standings with Ty Tremaine third.

"It‰Ûªs great to finally wrap up the 2016 EnduroCross championship. I had more crashes tonight than in the rest of the series put together, but I did what I needed to do," Haaker said.

"I didn't want to ride at 50% and just take it easy ‰ÛÒ I really wanted to give my all tonight. I got a great start and felt good but the track bit me a couple of times and things didn't go quite as well as I hoped they would. Second is still a good result but getting the championship is what really matters. It was my results in the seven rounds prior to tonight that earned me the title.

"There were a couple of pivotal moments during the series, and that allowed me to come into tonight with a good points lead. I‰Ûªm going to enjoy this and then look forward to going to Europe to defend my SuperEnduro title.‰Û
