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.
