Sunshine from WORCS, Round 1
Angela Butler, blasted her way through
the competition bringing home her first
win of the season.
The Polaris /Lone Star/Eichner Racing team
weathered the storms at Round 1 of the World
Off-Road Championship Series (WORCS) at
Speedworld, in Phoenix, Arizona January 25-27
bringing home a little sunshine from the team's
With the extreme rain and mud covering the
track at Speedworld, the Polaris Outlaw-mounted
team proved what teamwork is all about.
In championship style, the team effort,
captained by Multi-Time National and World
Champion and ATV racing legend, Doug Eichner,
celebrated their first Pro win of the season
with Eichner winning the Pro Production Class
aboard his Outlaw 525 S while setting the
fastest lap time of the weekend.
New to the WORCS venue and the Polaris Outlaw,
nine-time Womens National Champion, Angela
Butler, blasted her way through the
competition bringing home her first win of the
season in the Womens A class and ran seventh in
the Pro Am Class racing the Outlaw 450.
The entire team is very excited about her future
racing the Outlaw and Butler welcomes the new
challenge of the WORCS racing series.
Up-and-coming-superstar, John Shafe, provided
the team with a holeshot start in the Pro Main
aboard the Outlaw 450, with a Yoshimura enhanced
motor and exhaust system, supported by a FOX
Racing Shox suspension set-up. Despite the
less-than-desirable conditions of rain and mud
which ultimately eliminated more than half the
field of competitors, Shafe capably piloted his
Outlaw to a top five, well-earned finish for his
Youth rider and four-time national champion,
Caide Hunt, brought home a top five finish as
well in the 71-90cc Mod class on her
nearly-stock Outlaw 90 MXR. This race
provided Hunt with her first opportunity to
climb aboard her new machine where she held off
much of the competitive field of 17. Hunt's
future looks promising given her big smile
following an incredible ride.
Support Rider and ATV desert racing star, Mark
Speath, piloted the Outlaw 525 IRS to a second
place finish in the Masters 40 A class.
Speath's first competition aboard the versatile
machine has the team looking forward to
this respected campaigner's hard charge at WORCS
In other Polaris WORCS news, Doug Eichner's,
Polaris RANGER RZR, equipped with FOX Racing
Shox, shining, black Fullbore Innovations body,
MasterCraft seats and harnesses with a red roll
cage, arms and bumpers by Lone Star Racing was
almost too stunning to race. Eichner left
the start line demonstrating incredible speed
and talent that left spectators gasping as he
provided a sensational holeshot start from the
11 SxS line-up. Eichner continued his hard
charge despite his view being obstructed by his
open hood for much of the race. Co-pilot,
support rider, and good friend, Mark Speath,
helped navigate as Eichner crossed the checkered
flag securing a strong second place finish.
The team expects to be in good order for the
next WORCS race scheduled for February 22-24, in
