Corona, CA - After an international trip with races as far away as Calgary, Canada, Cory Graffunder was back to racing in his own backyard over the weekend at the third annual Prairie Dogs MC Last Dog Standing at Glen Helen Raceway. The extreme off-road event put Graffunder and his Husqvarna TXC310R to the test, but the Canadian was able to stand on the podium with a second-place finish at the end of the day.
“It was kind of an up and down day,” Cory said. “I was bummed about the first race being thrown out because I would have won if they didn’t. But a bunch of people got lost and it was mayhem so they threw it out in the final score.”
In the second race, Cory had a tough battle with Taylor Robert and ended up taking the win. “It wasn’t pretty,” Graffunder explained. “Right before the finish we crashed, kind of on top of each other. I got up first and won that one.”
