- CAREER FIRST
Austin led 20 pressure-filled laps to his first career Supercross victory. The 19-year-old professional was in the zone, riding under constant assault from the rest of the field. On the final lap, he was able to build a comfortable gap before the last turns and took the win in Tampa.
“I came into this season coming off a wrist injury and I’m feeling really good right now. The team has a good setup for my KX250F. Going after my first win was a challenge, but I was up front early and I tried to sprint to build a lead. I managed the pace to try and keep a good gap. I have to give it up to my team for staying behind me.”
