Burson Bags Another West Hare Scrambles Win

Nick Burson leads a group of lapped riders into the finish in his second victory of the season to date which vaulted him past Travis Coy, who was third on the day, to second in points.

Purvines Racing Beta’s Nick Burson kicked off the second half of the Kenda/SRT AMA West Hare Scrambles Championship Series by dominating the Silver State Trail Blazers’ Sawmill Run presented by Purvines Racing, round five of the eight-race tour.

It marked his second win of the season—the first rider to achieve that distinction—but SRT Off-road KTM’s Cory Graffunder held on to the series points lead thanks to his runner-up finish. Unofficially, Graffunder now has 122 while Burson’s 30-point haul moves him into second with 111. FMF/Maxxis/RPM Racing KTM’s Travis Coy finished the day third, dropping to third in points with 105.
