2015 WORCS Racing –  Round #5 – Sand Hollow, April 18, 2015 – Hurricane, Utah

Hurricane, UT (4/22/2015) – H&M Motorsports’ David Haagsma clinched his second straight WORCS Racing Pro ATV win of the season at Sand Hollow State Park for round five, while Teammate Beau Baron, who is recovering from a shoulder injury, claimed second and Collins Webster rounded out the WORCS Pro ATV podium for a H&M Motorsports Team podium sweep, while Mike Sloan extended his WORCS Pro-am winning streak to five straight.

2015 WORCS Racing reached the midway point of the season with round five held at Sand Hollow State Park in Hurricane, Utah, which proved to be one of the toughest tracks of the season with plenty of sand and rocks to challenge the racers over the twelve mile long course. Dry weather was on tap, which did cause some dust, but that didn’t stop David Haagsma from charging his way to the top of the podium.

H&M Motorsports’ David Haagsma grabbed the WORCS Racing Pro ATV holeshot and led the race from start to finish. Beau Baron tried to close the gap on him, but Haagsma was determined to stay out front. “My quad started right away… I grabbed the holeshot. It feels great to get another win. I have been practicing, and I am really pumped for the next round,” said Haagsma.

Haagsma’s second straight win also boosted him into the WORCS Racing Pro ATV points lead by one point over his teammate, Beau Baron, but Baron lost the points lead last year at Sand Hollow and came back to win the championship, so it will surely be an exciting points battle in the final four rounds of the season between the teammates.

H&M Motorsports’ Beau Baron came on strong and was feeling much better after an injury he sustained during the Lake Havasu round. “My shoulder wasn’t broken, so it is feeling a lot bette,r so I went out there and gave it my all,” said Baron.

Baron was in the number four spot early on, but he recorded the fastest laptime of the race in lap two and charged his way into the second spot by the end of lap three. Unfortunately, Baron also was stung by a bee, which he is allergic to, but continued to race and took a solid second place finish, which keeps him in a tight points battle with Haagsma.

Elka’s Collins Webster, who was racing with the H&M Motorsports team for the weekend, was toward the back of the pack of the start but at the midway point he was able to move into third place. “It got rough out there, but I loved it. I had a blast. This was my hometown so I had a lot of friends and family here. My H&M Motorsports Honda ran great out there, and I am really stoked with how my race went,” said Webster.
