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 sponsorship roster that includes returning stars and newly signed champions, CST Tires continues to step up its game in the world of ATV and off-road motorcycle racing. The company has built on solid results from last season by recruiting a powerhouse line-up for 2018.
“We have a deep roster this year, and we know that all of these riders are fully capable of winning a championship on CST tires. We’re very confident about our prospects,” said Chris Meyer, marketing coordinator for CST Tires.
New riders include eight-time ATVMX champion Nick Gennusa, who will again contest that series’ Pro class, and Brycen Neal, who’s gunning for the GNCC Pro title after taking second overall last season. Michael Swift will ride for CST in GNCC’s 4×4 Pro, UTV Pro, and Ace classes, as well as competing in the Heartland Challenge. Swift’s GNCC competition in 4×4 Pro and UTV Pro will include fellow CST rider Kevin Trantham, who is also new to the company’s roster.
CST’s returning stars include nine-time WORCS champion Beau Baron, who will compete in WORCS Pro ATV and Pro SxS, as well as Quad Cross and the Big 6 series in 2018. Adam McGill, who rode CST to fifth place overall in GNCC’s Pro class and appeared on the podium seven times in 2017, will work to leave his competition in the dust in the GNCC, IXCR ATV Pro Overall, and WEXCR Pro Overall. No stranger to the ATVMX podium, Thomas Brown will compete in that series’ Pro class, plus Pont de Vaux and QXON.
Desert racer Cory Sappington will again compete in both Best in the Desert and the SCORE-International series. Like his new teammates Swift and Trantham, Dwight Pollard is scheduled to race in GNCC’s 4×4 Pro class. Pollard will also compete in the series’ XC3 SxS class, as well as the Heartland Challenge, Mid East, SORCS, and IXCR. Sean Bogdan will compete in GNCC UTV XC1 Pro, and Justin Wood will race the series’ 4×4 Senior A class.
Racing motorcycles for CST will be Mitch Anderson. Among Mitch’s accomplishments during the past year was a team victory at the John Burr 10 Hours of Glen Helen.
CST is proud to welcome all of its riders to its strongest ATV roster yet, and looks forward to cheering them on to victory throughout the year.
Baron took an early lead and held it throughout the race, finishing in 01:14:34.965. “I just hung it out a little more on the first lap, and I got a gap. I knew it was going to be tough to see because I saw a little dust coming up, so I knew I had to get up front early. I ate dirt at the last couple of races, and I didn’t want that to happen here. I got out front and did what I could. Then Mike Sloan had a miracle lap, and he reeled right in on me before he had to pit. I’m really happy with today’s results,” he told worcsracing.com. The series’ defending seven-time champion, Baron is undefeated so far this season in WORCS’ Pro ATV class.
In yet another trip to the top of the podium during the weekend, he rode CST to victory in the SxS Pro Stock race, winning in 38:44.623. With 63 points so far this season, Baron is just one point away from an overall lead in the SxS Pro Stock.
CST congratulates Beau Baron on his latest victories.
