South Milwaukee Wisconsin’s Jay Orr commanded the second half of Sunday afternoon’s WXRX 200 lap Enduro, leading the final 96 laps in route to his second career win in the event.

Orr bested 85 entrants on a sun-splashed afternoon, inheriting the lead right after the race’s halfway point. Palatine’s Ryan Decker directed the race for most of the first 100 laps, before finding trouble near lap 75. Nursing a bent up and overheating race car, Decker’s chances for victory evaporated as the cars headed to the pits during the 10-minute halfway break, when he was unable to return to action.

Former race winners Caleb Shultis and Tyler Griswold finished second and third. Griswold took third by a matter of a few feet over fourth place finishing Ryan Lagastee. Scott Vetter rounded out the top five.
