BRA: Long-Awaited Wins

BRA: Long-Awaited Wins

Advertisement | Advertise with Us
Last Saturday night in Atlanta, GEICO Honda’s Wil Hahn finally came through for a win (leading every lap with a broken toe, no less!) after racing in the 250SX class since 2008. Racers who are capable of getting supercross wins in the 250SX class typically point out before spending a ton of time there, which got us wondering just how often guys are rewarded with wins after being in the class for long periods of time. So, for this week’s Bench Racing Ammo, we’ve put together a list in of 250SX racers who have come up with victories after extended stays in the class. Be sure to use the comments section to let us know if we missed anyone.
