2020 Worcs Series
SLR Honda | Mesquite, NV | Round 3
The SLR Honda team competed in the third round of the 2020 Worcs series on May 31st, 2020 in Mesquite, NV after an unexpected 3-month break. With an unusually extended amount of off time, the team was able to prepare for this race in the weeks prior as best they could while adding an extra layer of challenges with the rising temperatures.
Cole Martinez #34 fought throughout the race to find himself in the leader pack after battling from behind. Finishing the race in 3rd place and back on the podium in the Pro Class, Martinez maintained his 3rd position in overall series points standings. The heat and tough track conditions played a part on teammate and Pro class rider, Trevor Stewart #75. Unfortunately, it came to an end early resulting in a DNF after a hard fight. Stewart is positioned only 1 point behind 5th place in the overall series points and with more consistent racing to come, Stewart is confident to find himself back on the podium.
Tallon Lafountaine #259 performed a solid race while battling for a podium finish in Pro 2. Lafountaine managed a 2nd place finish and a 2nd place series points standing while overcoming the unconventional track conditions. Lafountaine continues the battle to be a top rider in the Pro
2 class and proves his position in each race. The next scheduled race for the SLR Honda team will be Round 4 of the Worcs series on June 14, 2020 in Wickenburg, AZ.

2020 SLR Honda Off-Road Program
Presenting Team Riders and Race Plan
San Diego, CA – January 13, 2020 – With an all-out reign against the off-road competition, SLR Honda announces Trevor Stewart and Cole Martinez will be joining the team as pro class riders alongside seasoned pro 2 class rider, Tallon Lafountaine. Representing American Honda for the 2020 season, SLR Honda team riders will be racing the NGPC and WORCS series.
Stewart recently wrapped up his second straight NGPC crown in 2019 on JCR Honda and is ready to return and defend his title with the SLR Honda team this season aboard the CRF450RX. This 22-year old is arguably the one to watch out for as he dominated last year’s NGPC series and continues to rack up his victories at each race.
Martinez, a former supercross racer, will also join the team as a pro class rider. With a strong finish on the podium at the last round of the 2019 NGPC series, he is determined to prove his talent in off-road racing this season. Martinez is ready to take on the NGPC and WORCS series races this year.
Bringing experience and consistency, Lafountaine is returning as a pro 2 class WORCS and NGPC rider for SLR Honda. This isn’t his first stint with the team and with a solid resume, his re-sign was greatly anticipated.
With a renewed contract and continued support from American Honda, the team is thrilled to represent the Ride Red program this year alongside their title sponsor, Monster Energy.
Skechers Shoes and Twisted Development will be expanding their support into the team as new sponsors and added agreements from STI Tires, Lava Propane, San Diego Powerhouse and Factory Showa are in place for the 2020 season.
