The Mercer cousins pulled off their second straight Enduro win of the 2013 racing season at Speedway 660 on Sunday afternoon. Chuck and Clifford, racing out of the Norton area, topped the 22 car field to earn a trip to the Riverview Ford Lincoln Victory Lane.
“It was tough just trying to survive that final 50 laps out there today because things sure got pretty wild” said Cliff Mercer. “We had to work hard just to get our race car here today after we got beat up so bad in the first Enduro of the season.”
Chuck and Clifford Mercer are on a roll at Speedway 660. The Mercer cousins rattled off their second straight ENDURO 200 win of the 2013 season on Sunday in the Geary Woods.

“We had another pretty good run out here today and are happy to get another second place finish” said Brody Seveck. “The Mercer boys are tough, they’ve won two in a row and are the defending Enduro champs, but we’re gonna come back on SpeedWeekend to see if we can give them a battle for the 2013 championship.”
