Jagan Kumar swept to the title in the Pro-Stock 165cc Open category while Chennai youngster Mohan Babu topped the Novice (Stock 165cc) class after the second and final round of the MRF MMSC FMSCI Indian National Motorcycle Racing Championship (INMRC) at the MMRT here on Sunday.

With this triumph, the 31-year-old Jagan clinched his ninth National crown (125cc in 2009 and eight in the 165cc Open class).
