The Greenville Enduro Riders Association is the promoting club of the Little Brown Jug Enduro.
2007 marks the 54th running of the Little Brown Jug Enduro. The first Little Brown Jug Enduro was organized by the River Falls Enduro Riders in 1952. The club remained the River Falls Enduro Association until 1970 when the club name was changed to the Greenville Enduro Riders Association.
The first Little Brown Jug Enduro was held in north Cleveland South Carolina. It was organized by David and Herman Brown. With their last names being Brown, they decided to call the enduro the Little Brown Jug. David and Herman laid out 125 miles of trail for the first race. A lot of the trail was laid out by driving around Rivers Falls in their car. About 40 riders showed up to ride the first event. Some of the first riders were Jim McCarson, Benny Boodle, Herman Brown, David Brown and Lowell Tankersley. Seven trophies were awarded to the riders. Ray Sang-Sing was the first overall winner of the LBJ. He was awarded a Brown Jug as his trophy.
"Grant Baylor Wins Little Brown Jug National Enduro
Union, SC – Factory FMF/KTM rider Grant Baylor took his first-career AMA National Enduro win near his hometown at the ninth round of the series in the most notable race so far this season.
National Enduro fans were excited to see who would come out on top at this race as previously injured riders had returned to racing and an entire new team showed up to compete at this round to make it the most stacked field to date. One of the new additions to the competition was Baylor’s GNCC teammate Kailub Russell.
In fact, it was Russell who earned the first special test win. The GNCC rider seemed right at home in the tight woods and was a contender for the win throughout the majority of the race. Baylor also got off to a strong start turning the second fastest time in the first section.
The two FMF/KTM teammates remained in top position throughout the next few tests as the riders were challenged to move around lappers in the thick dust. At the end of the fourth section, Baylor had moved into the overall lead. Once in the lead position, he never lost it. Baylor took the test win in the fifth section and ended the sixth with a great time to earn his first overall victory in the series.
“It is an amazing feeling to get this win,” stated Baylor. “I have been close a few times this season and was really hoping to pull one off before the end of the series. I am very grateful to my team for helping me get to this point.”
Russell, who was in podium position heading into the final test, had a couple issues in the long and tight final section. He clipped a few trees which lost him some time, and unfortunately, dropped him to 4th for the day, just a step off the podium.
“We are very proud of Grant (Baylor) for earning his first win,” stated Factory FMF/KTM Team Manager Antti Kallonen. “We were also very excited to have Kailub (Russell) return to the series. This is his first time back to the series in two years and we are happy with his top five performance.”
Factory FMF/KTM rider and 8-time National Enduro Champion, Mike Lafferty finished the race inside the top ten with a 9th place result. His teammates, Charlie Mullins and Steward Baylor, were sidelined at this event still recovering from injury.
