Luke Fauser has placed himself near the sharp end of the Dirty 100 standings in both the Mini Sr. 1 (12-14) and 85cc (9-13) Open classes this year as the Pennsylvanian has been consistently challenging for podiums all season long. The Orange Brigade KTM rider started his 2020 racing campaign at the Daytona RCSX in March, earning a 7th place overall in the Mini Sr. 1 (12-14) class. Additionally, Fauser boosted his confidence with a win in the 85cc (10-12) class, although that particular classification doesn’t count in the official Dirty 100 standings. Less than a week later, Fauser showed up at Spring A Ding Ding to race at Underground MX for the first time, competing against some seriously stacked competition in the 85cc (9-13) Open and Mini Sr. 1 (12-14) classes. The Cernics supported rider did well considering it was his first time racing at Underground MX and he was one of the younger competitors in both classes as he came away with two 2nd place overall results at the end of the weekend. Despite missing out on points at the Loretta Lynn Amateur National Motocross Championship because he competed in both of the 85cc (10-12) classifications, Fauser managed to keep himself within the championship hunt in both 85cc (9-13) Open and Mini Sr. 1 with impressive scores at the Baja Brawl. The Pennsylvanian won a couple of motos over the course of Labor Day Weekend and finished the majority of his races on the podium, earning a total of three overall podiums as a reward for his efforts. The KTM rider’s consistent podium pace allowed him to pick up 42 points in the 85cc (9-13) Open class and 45 points in the Mini Sr. 1 (12-14) class, placing him in 2nd place overall in both respective points standings. Fauser is only a handful of points behind the leader in both classes and he’ll have a shot at the top spot heading into The Motoplayground Race at Ponca City, aiming to add a couple more number one plates to his collection for the 2020 season.
