Holz Polaris RS1s Sweep Second WORCS Pro Stock Podium in a Row
Holz Racing WORCS Lake Havasu SXS Report
Lynden, WA (2/25/2019) – Holz Racing Products Polaris RZR RS1s again swept the Pro Stock podium during round two of the WORCS Series in Lake Havasu City, AZ. The new single seat cars have dominated the podiums in both races thus far this season. In addition Holz RZRs finished first and second in SXS Pro.
The Pro Stock race was not without its difficulties as an extended stoppage was called after a car crashed and blocked the track. On the restart, Corbin Leaverton outdueled Cody Bradbury to take the lead and the victory, the second of his young career.
“We went back and forth and I’m pumped to come out of here with a win,” said Leaverton. “The RS1 and Holz got it done for us today. Polaris makes a great car and Holz makes it even better.”
After the fierce battle with Leaverton, Bradbury overcame brake issues and had the confidence in his Holz-built car to hit the Lagoon Jump on the final lap. The move nearly paid off with a victory, but he finished a close second
“We just battled and it was a fun race,” said Bradbury. “I had brake issues with a lap to go, but I did the lagoon jump on the last lap and that made it really close.”
Baron hung with Bradbury and Leaverton for several laps, but backed it down to preserve his car. The third-place finish handed him the points lead.
“At first I tried to push it to try to stay with them, but I was worried about breaking my car,” said Baron. “So I backed it down a little bit and hoped one of them would break.”
Bradbury won the SXS Pro race in dominant fashion. Driving a Holz-build Polaris RZR Turbo S, Bradbury grabbed the holeshot and drove away from the field to net the runaway victory.
“I got a good jump, took the holeshot, and ran flat out for a couple of laps to see what I could do,” said Bradbury. “My plan was to sprint as much as I could at the beginning and maintain from there so I stuck to the game plan.”
Baron finished second SXS Pro, driving a car that was nearly destroyed in the first race. Baron was punted by a lapper at the Primm event, but his Holz cage likely saved his life and allowed him to emerge uninjured. He drove from last to second to put himself back in the thick of the championship chase.
“I didn’t get taken out by a lapper so I’m pumped,” said Baron. “I have a solid 60 hours rebuilding this car so I’m stoked it ran and it got me good results. I wouldn’t trust anyone but Holz to build my cage, especially after that crash. I was probably 20 feet in the air and it smashed everything, but the cage was still straight.”
Look for Holz Racing Products Polaris RZRs to continue to be the frontrunners in WORCS competition as the series heads to Canyon MX in Peoria, AZ March 15-17.
