Holz RS1s Sweep the Podium at Mesquite MX
Holz Racing WORCS Mesquite SXS Report
Lynden, WA (5/22/2019) – Led by Cody Bradbury, Holz Racing Products-built Polaris RZR RS1s again swept the podium during the WORCS Series SXS Pro Stock race at Mesquite MX in Nevada. Matthew Hancock finished fifth in his Holz RS1. Bradbury also finished third in the SXS Pro class in his RZR Turbo S.
Pro Stock is arguably the most competitive SXS class in WORCS competition and Holz cars have dominated this season. In the most recent race, Bradbury came out ahead after an intense battle with Corbin Leaverton to post his first victory of the season. Beau Baron and Leaverton finished second and third, respectively, completing a podium sweep by Holz RS1s.
“The RS1 is super good,” said Bradbury. “Corbin and I have identical cars and they have proved to be competitive. We’ve swept the podium several times this year. Holz builds an awesome RS1, which is demonstrated by three Polaris RS1s on the podium built by Holz Racing Products.”
Baron is a strong believer in Holz Racing Products. Mesquite features a motocross course with several big jumps. Baron felt comfortable taking every one of those jumps in his Holz-built RS1.
“Holz Racing Products are so awesome,” said Baron. “There were a bunch of times I over jumped stuff, landed hard and I thought the car was going to come apart and it didn’t. Hats off to Mark Holz for that.”
Leaverton, who is Bradbury’s nephew, is leading the Pro Stock points going into the summer break. He’s only missed the podium once this season and has two victories to his credit. This marks his breakout season in WORCS and he is among the favorites to win the championship.
“It was nice to battle with my uncle like that and it’s really been like that the whole season,” said Leaverton. “Polaris is always ahead of the game and the RS1 shows that. It’s a tough car and it’s given me consistency all year. I don’t think anyone can say enough about these Holz RS1s. They have dominated this season.”
In SXS Pro, Bradbury scored his fourth podium this season. Driving a Holz-built Polaris RZR Turbo S, Bradbury appreciated the car’s wide track and ground clearance in the deep sand on the off-road section
“The Turbo S was awesome,” said Bradbury. “The ruts were super deep and the sand was definitely a challenge, but the Polaris RZR Turbo S handled perfectly. It was perfect for this track.”
WORCS is now into its summer break and will return to action September 13-15 at Glen Helen Raceway in Devore, CA.
