From Husaberg- Factory rider Nick Fahringer earned 3rd overall at the seventh round of the OMA Nationals after bouncing back from a poor start to finish inside the top three.
Fahringer got off to a rough start at the beginning of the seventh round of the OMA Nationals and lost two minutes to the early leaders of Russell Bobbitt and Paul Whibley. Fahringer regrouped around the halfway point of the race and was able to run consistent lap times with the leaders to hold them from stretching their lead. At the end of the hot and dusty race, Fahringer collected a 3rd place finish.
“I struggled with some mistakes early in the race, but luckily, was able to pull it together at the end,” stated Fahringer. “I am still hoping to pull out a win before the end of the season and will continue to push as hard as I can in my weekly training to achieve that goal.”
