Locking Mesh Warp to track motion

I have a clip where I have taken some text and mesh warped it at the last frame of a clip in order to match an irregular surface of a motion tracked video clip.
When I play the clip the text only warps when it gets into range of the mesh at the end.
Is there anyway to lock or key frame the position of the mesh warp so that it stays in place to maintain the effect on the text as the clip plays?

It's best that you post screen grabs cos there is incredibly little chance that you will solve your issues in the manner you've described. The Corner Pin is strictly defined by four points. You may do better with transform tracking data coupled with a distortion effect but it all depends on the backing plate and the insert image you are working with.
