Taylor Robert secures 2012 WORCS Championship

5 years ago

After nine rounds of the World Off Road Championship Series (WORCS), Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Taylor Robert clinched the 2012 WORCS Championship by sweeping both races this weekend at Cahuilla Creek MX in Anza, Calif. The victory was Robert’s sixth overall win of the season, earning him enough points to wrap up his first WORCS Pro Class Championship over teammate Bobby Garrison, with one round remaining.

“It feels incredible,” said Robert. “I’ve worked really hard to get this title, and it means even more because I was so close last year. To win as many races as I have this year, I couldn’t have done it without everyone at Monster Energy Kawasaki. I can’t thank everyone enough.”

Robert went 1-1 for the weekend, earning 50 points for a record of 1-6-2-1-1-4-1-1-1, for a total of 406 points so far this season. Garrison rode hard, but injuries kept him from seriously challenging Robert, as he finished fifth at round nine. With a season total of 335 points, it’s now impossible for Garrison to catch Robert at final round next month.

JCR Honda’s Timmy Weigand went 2-3 for second overall, ahead of Robby Bell who went 3-4 for third overall. RPM/KTM’s Josh Strang stepped up in Sunday’s race to finish second, with a 8-2 result taking fourth overall.
