HEADING TO UTAH
Round five took place at Sand
Hollow SVRA in Hurricane, Utah. It
was a change of scenery being in the
sand dunes of Utah, but that didn’t
stop the competitors from giving it
all they had. David Haagsma pulled
top honors, with Beau Baron in sec-
ond and Collins Webster in third for
Pro ATV. Ryan Piplic came in first,
with Beau Baron in second and Mitch
Guthrie Jr. in third for the Pro UTV
With the racing being so close in
the ATV Pro class and new winners
finding success almost every round
for the UTV Pro class, we are sure that
it will be a good year of racing, and it
will definitely come down to the wire
to claim the winner for that #1 plate.
Future rounds consist of Iron Mine
in Cedar City, Utah; Straddleline
ORV in Glen Helen, California;
and the final round back in Primm,
During practice in Havasu, Beau Baron
snapped his axle on both ends, resulting in a shoulder injury. Beau still managed to ride in the Pro race and finish
well enough to earn valuable points.
In the Pro ATV class you will find more
Hondas on the track than any other
brand here on the West Coast. In the
Youth classes, you will see more variety from other manufacturers, proving
they can finish up front with a different
setup than the Pros.
A lot of the racecourses are too narrow for UTVs, making them one lane
with minimal room for passing. With
the sandy terrain, the course becomes
almost like you are driving on rails with
the ruts getting deep, making it hard to
find new lines.
At Havasu, WORCS incorporates a lagoon jump to test your skills and bravery.
Scared drivers can take a longer alternate route. Here, brave Ryan Piplic is launching his RZR 1000 in the Pro class to a second-place finish.
At round four in Lake Havasu, Arizona, tourists and spectators were able to be
trackside in the water to watch all the racers compete along the shore. The weather in Havasu was nice and hot, but with the water near by, you were able to stay
cool at all times.
