Corona, CA – August 27, 2012 – A solid finish was all it took for factory Husqvarna’s Cory Graffunder to wrap up the 2012 AMA Western Hare Scrambles Championship! Despite a broken foot that still wasn’t quite healed up, Graffunder toughed it out at the Big Sky XC in Montana, the final round of the series sealing the championship and earning his first AMA number one plate.

“I am still pretty banged up from my crash last month,” Graffunder explained. “Between my foot, and my back, it’s been nearly a month since I’ve been on a motorcycle. I just had to come out here and ride a solid race. It didn’t matter if I won the race; I just needed to score points.”
