Beau Baron Takes WORCS Pro ATV & Pro Stock SxS Win at Round 3
Atascadero, CA (2/20/2017) – Beau Baron won both the Pro ATV and Pro Stock SXS races during round three of the WORCS off road series at Honolulu Hills Raceway in Taft, CA. It marked his third consecutive Pro ATV win and his second straight Pro Stock SXS victory.
Heavy rains caused by Winter Storm Lucifer flooded the track on Friday. WORCS Officials worked hard to get the track ready.
In the ATV race, Baron quickly made his move on the holeshot winner. Taking the lead on lap one, Baron never looked back, cruising to victory to pad his points lead.
“I just hung it out a little more on the first lap and I got a gap,” said Baron. “I just maintained that for the rest of the race. I knew it was going to be tough to see because I saw a little dust coming up, so I knew I had to get up front early. I ate dirt at the last couple of races, and I didn’t want that to happen here. I got out front and did what I could.
While mechanical issues sidelined Baron in the Pro SXS, he dominated the field in the Pro Stock SXS race. He pulled the holeshot in his stock Polaris RZR XP 1000 and led every lap for the win, which moves him within one point of the class leader with his second straight win. “The Pro Stock RZR ran great,” said Baron. “It’s just bone stock and that’s what I like; it showcases driving skill. The CST Dingo Tires were perfect for the conditions today. When it just starts to dry out, they really shine. We’re working hard with Doug and Elka this year to get the shocks dialed in. I made the switch to Elka this year, and it’s working out really well.”
Baron will be back in action as the series heads to Lake Havasu City, AZ March 17- 19.
