Brown Regains WORCS Championship Points Lead

Milford, CA – Shock Doctor/KTM Factory WORCS racer Mike Brown regained the championship points lead after earning 3rd overall at the 5th round of the series.

Brown had a great start rounding the first turn in 2nd place. By the 3rd turn he had moved into 1st place. For three laps he battled back and forth for the lead before he made a mistake that cost him two positions. Meanwhile, his teammate Justin Soulè, who had started within the top five had dropped back to 10th. “I was riding really tight the first half of the race and I lost a bunch of positions. I calmed down in the second half and really improved my pace and moved back into the top five,” commented Soulè,

With three laps to go, Brown was still sitting in 3rd place. He was close to the top two until he made two mistakes that both resulted in a crash on the second to last lap. He held his position and finished a strong 3rd overall while his teammate put on a last minute charge to finish just 10 seconds behind him in 4th.
