The 2013 WORCS Season wrapped up this past weekend at Buffalo Bill’s Casino outside Primm, NV. And all things pointed to a wild race with the WORCS crew com¬bining all SXS classes together on the course for a total of 55 UTVs .
In Pro Production, Holz Racing Product’s Beau Baron and his #549 HRP/Polaris/Maxxis RZR XP 900 needed to finish 7th or better to lock up the Pro Production Title. Coming off a broken collar bone, there were questions as to how Beau was going to be perform. All those were answered when Baron pulled a holeshot while team¬mate RJ Anderson and his freshly built #37 Walker Evans/Polaris/ Loanmart/HRP XP 1000 slotted into second spot. At the end of lap one, Beau settled in to a solid pace while RJ suffered a mechanical. From there, Baron settled in and drove a solid and smooth race, fin¬ishing the 5-lap race in 45:03.625 with a 51 second lead over runner up Ryan Piplic.
In SXS Production 1000, Mitch Guthrie, Jr. drove his #751 Guthrie Racing/HRP Polaris RZR XP 900 to a solid second place finish on the rough and rocky Nevada desert course. With five wins on the season, Guthrie was proud to lock up another championship for the Polaris RZR team with his Holz-equipped XP 900.
Meanwhile in SXS Production 700 class, David Haagsma parked his #422 Curtis Sparks powered, Holz equipped Polaris RZR 570 for the weekend after clinching the championship with a dominating 7 wins on the season. Haagsma tested his hand in a Polaris RZR XP 1000 in the SXS Production 1000 class and posted the fast lap of the race with a 8:33.052 – watch for more of this next season!
“I want to thank all of the guys out there racing and winning with Holz Products. Between Beau, RJ and Robert VanBeekum (#664 Muzzy’s RZR XP) we won 7 of 9 SXS Pro Production against some very good cars and drivers. Mitch lead the charge in SXS Production 1000 with 5 wins while team drivers Haagsma and Michael Bunyea won 8 of the 9 SXS Production 700 events. We’ve got great partners in Polaris and Walker Evans Racing.” said Mark Holz.
