At Pala, the man from Canterbury ended up 18th overall in the MX2 class, just one place behind fellow Kiwi and the only other New Zealander in the mix, Tauranga’s Josiah Natzke.
Walsh twice finished 18th, while Natzke went 19th and then 15th.
At Hangtown a week later, Walsh finished 21st and 15th, while Natzke twice placed 17th.
After the two rounds so far, Natzke is 18th overall and Walsh 20th in the championship standings, while Australian brothers Jett and Hunter Lawrence (both Honda) are first and second overall respectively, with Japan’s Jo Simoda (Kawasaki) third overall.
