Taylor Robert claims overall victory at round one of the AMA KENDA SRT Hare and Hound Championship.

The opening round of the 2018 series kicked off in the Spangler Hills, California with a full entry keen to get their season off to a good start.

Nick Burson led for much of the season's opening race in the Pro Class, gaining a strong lead on the opening lap after the rest of the field was stuck at a train crossing.

Burson gave up his lead to Robert through the rocky and technical section in lap two from where Taylor brought the win home.

After difficulties with his radiator at the end of lap one, Jacob Argubright climbed from fourth position to take second by the flag.

Kendall Norman pushed hard after helping another rider during the race to round out the podium in third.
