EPIC FINISH AT CAHUILLA WORCS
Baron fessed up to a mistake on that final lap. “I kind of endoed and was out of shape. Josh had a great drive and he just went by; there was nothing I could really do.” In the early laps of the race, it actually looked like Dustin Nelson was going to run away. After passing holeshot artist Jeremie Warnia, he put in some solid laps to build a very small cushion. But at the one-hour mark, pit-stops played havoc with the running order. All three riders took turns in front, leaving the rest of the field farther and farther behind. Then Nelson started struggling with shock fade. The track was brutal, dusty and hot. “I had to back it off, and just try to get to the finish,” said Dustin later. For most of the last hour of racing, Baron had a modest lead. It wasn’t until the last three laps that Frederick got within striking distance. “I had to work really hard at the beginning of the race because I didn’t want Dustin and Beau to just check out like they can. I was happy to be there so that I could make something happen in the last hour.”
