Anderson, Baron Take WORCS Championships

Anderson, Baron Take WORCS Championships

Mitch Anderson clinched WORCS’ Pro 2 championship with a third-place race finish at Round 9, the final race of the season, and easily won the Open A title as well. Beau Baron took second place in the Pro ATV race as well as second place for the year, and won the SxS Pro Stock championship. WORCS’ Round 9 was held October 26-28 in Primm, Nevada.

Anderson took a spot on the podium at every Pro 2 WORCS race this year, and took a victory at Round 3. He racked up a total of 152 points in 2018.

In Open A, Anderson earned the championship by winning five of the six races in which he competed, including the season finale. He accumulated 141 points, 17 more than the second-place rider, by the season’s end, and also took second place overall in 450 A. “My program wouldn’t be where it is without CST tires,” he said. “A lot of credit goes to CST for sticking with me this year.”

Baron finished the season just one point away from first place in Pro ATV standings. He took four wins and turned in three second-place finishes this year. “One point; that’s all it is,” he said. “I won more races than anyone else this year, but it didn’t work out in my favor. I’m definitely bummed, but we’ll work hard on next year.”

The news was much better for Baron in SxS Pro Stock. After six turns on the podium, including two victories, he took the class championship with a total of 180 points for the year, an eight-point margin over the next rider.

CST Tires congratulates Mitch Anderson and Beau Baron on their championships and thanks all of its riders for another season of excellent performances and for helping to prove the quality of CST tires to racing fans everywhere.
