NJ riders are not only competitive in motocross but New Jersey is also the home of the 7 time National Enduro Champion Mike Lafferty. The Lafferty family has been winning enduros for many years but most recently Mike (Estell Manor) has taken the top spot. The eight time National Champion is poised to take the top spot in the record books with a championship this season.
Of the three round run this season Lafferty has won riders have won two of them. Going into round 4 of 10 Lafferty holds a slim one point lead. Joining Lafferty chasing the National Championship dream is his brother Rich and Wally Palmer. Several other NJ riders are planning on doing selected rounds of the series including Joel Dengler and Mike Sigety who sit in 33rd and 36th place respectively in the series points standings.
