The first round (Saturday 1/29) of the 2011 WORCS season was canceled following the tragic accident involving Nathan Woods (round two on Sunday 1/30 will be held). Nathan passed on the track after a practice crash, one witnessed by his friend and fellow racer Kurt Caselli. Kurt was one of the first on the scene and was helped with Dirt Bike contributor Steven Achey. Unfortunately, all of their help could not help Nathan. Today, Sean Reddish canceled the Pro race, had a brief memorial for Nathan and then a parade lap led by Nathan’s former mechanic Charles Jirsa who rode with Nathan’s wife Amanda while Kurt Caselli toted Nathan’s son Braxton. It was a tearful salute to one of the best competitors to ever grace the WORCS arena.
