Defending champion, Nick Burson, went home with a 5th place at the opening round of the AMA WHS series held at Hangtown Mx. "It had been raining a few weeks prior to the race and I knew it would be extremely muddy." Burson got off to a great start and held the lead for the first 5 miles. "When we came to the mud hole i chose a bad line and got stuck, I ended up doing this a few times on the first lap." After stopping for new gloves and goggles Burson started to pick it up when he went back out. "After the hour mark I picked up the pace, passing 2 guys on the last lap, all in all it was a good day!" Burson's next race with be Round 1 of the National Hare & Hound Series next weekend in Lucerne Valley.
