Short & Wharton at Track Walk

February 23, 2011 (Wortham, Texas) – Do you want to know how to attack the often demanding track at Freestone? On Monday, March 7th, from 4:30-6:00pm, come “Track Walk with the Pro’s.” Freestone County Raceway will have special guest, RedBull KTM’s Andrew Short and Geico Honda’s Blake Wharton giving the low down in Texas.

Andrew and Blake will be on hand during the official “track walk” of the AMA Spring Championship to give their insight into how they conquer the Freestone national track. Andrew Short has had some of his best results at Freestone and is no stranger to winning amateur national titles. “I can’t wait to come to Freestone to walk the track with the kids and to share what I’ve learned over the years. I will be open to answer any questions the kids may have, and most of all be there to enjoy the fun” Shorty said.

Blake Wharton has won his share of amateur national titles as well. The three time Loretta’s national champion commented “I know it will be a good race at Freestone and since it’s a Texas national, I want to support Spring Championship. Everyone knows how important it is to do a track walk. I think it will be cool to talk about it with the riders.”
