Riding CST tires, Mitch Anderson dominated WORCS’ Pro 2 race to take his first-ever win in the series’ class. Round 4 was held March 23-25 in Lake Havasu City, Arizona.
After taking the lead early in the race, Anderson was unstoppable, correctly gauging the quickest route around the sandy, rocky, lakeside course and using the notoriously tricky Lagoon Jump to increase his advantage. “I took the first lap and figured out the lines early. From there I pushed hard, got the lead and just rode my own race. This is my first Pro 2 win in the WORCS series ever. I’m kind of speechless, but happy. A lot of work goes into this, and it’s good to see it paying off,” he told worcsracing.com. His win also vaulted Anderson into the class points lead.
Anderson praised his CST tires as instrumental to his victory. “The CST Tires worked great,” he said. “I ran the CST Desert to compensate for the sand and soft terrain. They worked phenomenal the whole race.”
WORCS Round 5 is scheduled for April 27-29 in Utah’s Sand Hollow State Park. CST congratulates Mitch Anderson on his resounding victory, and thanks him for choosing CST tires.
CST’s Beau Baron powered ahead of his competition to take the win at WORCS’ latest SXS Pro Stock race. Round 3 was held March 16 in Lake Havasu, Arizona.
“I got a second-place start behind Matt Hancock, and there was a rhythm section along the back straightaway,” Baron told worcsracing.com. “We came into that last one; he checked up, and I never lifted, so I launched half a car length in front of him and took off in the lead. [Randy] Romo started running me down, and he got close at the end.” But Baron held onto his lead and crossed the finish line in 41:20.101.
He was on track to take a double win for the weekend when he moved into the lead in the Pro ATV race. A mechanical failure sidelined him and prevented that victory, however.
With this win plus his previous results, which include a podium at Round 2, Baron leads the SXS Pro Stock class in series points to date. In WORCS racing he is currently third in points for SXS Pro, and fifth overall in Pro ATV. Three rounds into the District 37 Big 6 Grand Prix series, he’s undefeated in Quad Expert, leading the class in points.
WORCS’ next SXS race is scheduled for March 23 in Lake Havasu. CST congratulates Beau Baron on this victory and on taking the lead in the race for the SXS Pro championship.
With a victory in XC1 Pro, Brycen Neal attained a career first over the weekend. Neal topped the podium at AMSOIL GNCC Round 3, the Maxxis General, held March 17 in Washington, Georgia.
Neal, of Bneal Motorsports/CST Tires/Houser Racing, took the lead about a half-mile into the course. He didn’t drop behind for the rest of the race, even through the ultra-demanding Monster Mile, when he and Chris Borich were neck and neck. Despite a fierce challenge from Borich throughout the last lap, Neal held his lead and took his first-ever XC1 Pro GNCC win in a heart-stopping finish. After three rounds, he holds second place in points for the class.
Adam McGill had a difficult day but demonstrated grit and determination in finishing the race. Despite severe blisters on his hands which made steering next-to-impossible, he managed a top-ten finish, earning eighth place. McGill is currently fifth in XC1 points.
