RZRS SHINE AT WORCS, GNCC

RZRs fill the podium in both series                                                                                                                               

Minneapolis, April 23, 2013-RZRs filled the podium this past weekend at WORCS Round Four, at Sand Hollow OHV Park, in Hurricane, Utah, and at the GNCC Big Buck, in Union, SC.

WORCS Round Four, a bit different than most WORCS races, would consist of two laps of winding, sandy trails, rock climbs, and dune areas without the typical motocross section found at WORCS races. The course would challenge the almost 70 side-by-sides lining up for the race with many cars having their race end early.

Polaris Factory Racers, RJ Anderson, Beau Baron and Ryan Piplic would duke it out at full tilt through the course with Piplic in the lead and Anderson on his tail. Although finishing first, Piplic would settle for second to Anderson in the Walker Evans/Polaris/Loanmart/HRP Racing RZR XP 900, due to the time adjustment. HRP/Polaris/Maxxis Racing’s Beau Baron, the current WORCS point leader, finished third. RZRs also finished at the top of the rest of the side-by-side classes.

In GNCC, at the Big Buck, in Union, SC, Coastal Racing’s Scott Kiger had a rough start but finished strong ending up in third place in the XC1 Modified Class and fourth overall. Teammate, William Yokley’s day ended early when his front wheel came in contact with another machine’s rear wheel and broke a steering component. Yokley would keep it in the family though with Big Country Powersports/Yokley Racing UTV Team driver John Yokley finishing first Overall and first in the XC1 Modified Class.

The next WORCS race is Honolulu Hills, in Taft, Calif., May 10-12, and the next GNCC Race is the John Penton, in Millfield, Ohio, on June 1.
