VOLUME 57 ISSUE 24 JUNE 16, 2020 P57 KAILUB'S BACK away. I've been struggling a little bit, so I did a little bit of a warmup routine before the race, and I felt better the first half a lap. I was able to stretch it out but then got into lappers, and I kind of tanked myself. It's just frustrating. I'm glad to win, but I'm not really happy with the ride, to be honest with you. I know it's part of the sport, but those lappers are so slow and it's dangerous. It's just frustrating. That's all I can say." In fact, Russell lost his voice from yelling at lappers to move out of the way. Despite getting off to a terrible start, Strang (Babbitt's Online/ Monster Energy/Team Green Kawasaki) finished a close sec- ond to Russell in a race that got interesting on the final lap. Strang botched the start and was way down but still inside the top-10 on the opening lap. It wasn't until lap three when he found his pace and started to move to the front, which eventually put Strang into second behind Russell. The Aussie played cat and mouse with Russell, moving to within 10-seconds of the leader when Russell hit the ground on Kailub Russell (1) and Mike Witkowski (523) fight for the holeshot at the start of the High Point GNCC.
