BURSON TOPS GORMAN NATIONAL HARE SCRAMBLES P urvines Racing Beta rider Nick Burson led from start to finish at the Hungry Valley Hare Scrambles, round three of the Kenda/SRT AMA West Hare Scrambles Championship Series, in Gorman, California, March 14-15. Burson's vic- tory closed the points chase considerably. While he still holds third, Burson is only a point behind FMF/Maxxis/RPM Racing KTM's Travis Coy, who was runner-up on the day. Coy has 66 points to Burson's 65. Round-two winner Cory Graffunder remains the leader with 76 after his third-place fin- ish in Gorman aboard his SRT KTM. "I knew coming here, I needed to get out front and try to get away early," Burson said. "I knew a lot of the trails out here, so I knew the first lap was going to be key to try to break away." And break away he did, from the first wave of the green flag to the checkered flag two and a half hours later, Kenda/Motul/6D Helmets 430 RR-mounted Burson was on another level, coping best with the slick, hard-packed trails as he pulled away with each gear shift. Graffunder followed Burson into the first turn and slotted into second place early aboard his TBT/ Fasst Company/O'Neal KTM 300 XC. But he real- ized that it'd be better for his championship hopes IN THE WIND P34
