Solid 2021 World Off-Road Championship Series WORCS PRIMM

AUSTIN WALTON - WORCS RD 10

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Austin Walton jumped back into the 2021 World Off-Road Championship Series (WORCS) on Sunday, finishing a solid fourth in his first race back since Round 5.
Walton had a strong start to the day, capturing the holeshot and early lead in the race. He led for the first two laps before engaging in a three-way battle with the championship front-runners early on. He eventually shuffled back to third, where he rode a strong pace for the majority of the race. Dropping back a spot to a hard-charging Cole Martinez with a few laps to go, Walton continued to charge all the way to the checkers, just missing the overall podium in his first WORCS race back from injury.
Walton“I started off really good, working my way right into first place and leading for the first couple laps. I rode in third for the majority of the race and ended up losing that spot to Cole late in the race to finish fourth place. I felt like I rode really good in the first part but it was really unfortunate to lose that many spots. I think the body is just getting back into the groove of things after being off the bike for as long as I have. All-in-all, I can’t be too bummed with where I finished this weekend. I know I have the speed to win, just have to work on a couple things and we’ll come out swinging for the wins.”
