Austin Walton and the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team made their way to Peoria, Arizona on Sunday for Round 2 of the 2021 World Off-Road Championship Series (WORCS) at Canyon MX. Walton raced his way to a sixth-place finish in the Pro 450 class after battling through a challenging day of racing.
With a good jump off the start, Walton found himself up front early on as he battled in the second-place position. He made a mistake in the tire section early on and from there he struggled to carry momentum through the technical sections. He held on to fifth for a majority of the race, dropping back to sixth with three laps to go, where he ultimately finished for the day.
Walton: “Today started off really good but I had some struggles out there. I was running second for the first two laps and made one mistake in the tire section and that kind of set the tone for my race. We’ve got some things to work on but all-in-all it was a learning weekend and I know what I can do better for the next one.”
